Hong Kong, HK
Another of my favourite places in Hong Kong. One of the city's quirkiest modes of transport is the Central - Mid-levels Escalator, built as a connection between the financial district and residential areas further up the hillside.
From its starting point on Queen's Road Central, the escalator snakes its way through one of Hong Kong's oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods - an eclectic blend of wet markets, colonial structures, hip restaurants, watering holes and art galleries. Like the city as a whole, it keeps a precarious balance between age-old tradition and unashamed modernity.
Japan is a fascinating place. It has everything - islands, forests, mountains, volcanoes, rivers and lakes... This map explores just some of the geography of the country. Often the initial image 'Japan' conjures up is of a megacity like Tokyo, but we should not forget the beautiful landscape that covers over 2/3 of the country.

Weehawken, NJ is a small town on the western shore of the Hudson River. Perched at the top of a cliff, it boasts a magnificent view of Manhattan, and is known for being the site of the famous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Its historic water tower, inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, glows red and can be seen from New York City. Among its many grand Victorian homes, Weehawken's public library stands out for its beautiful restoration. People enjoy the waterfront for dining, recreation and relaxation. Weehawken also happens to be the place I call home.
The city of Lucknow is known for its heritage structures, the Nawabi style cuisine, its age old history of rulers reflected in the architecture and local culture and more famously for the polite and polished style of speaking fondly called as the Lucknowi Tehzeeb.
"The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day" was written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844 for a collection called "Flowers for Children, Volume 2." We know this poem by the popular name "Over the River and through the Woods." Music was written to go along with the poem and it is a common holiday song heard during Thanksgiving and the holiday season. The words were changed to say that the children were going to Grandmother's house when in fact it is Grandfather's house in the poem. Either way, it is a warm way to welcome the holiday season.

I chose to share my favorite places. It is a superb region, often compared to Ireland hence its nickname of Little Ireland. For my part it makes me think of the landscapes of Brittany. Produced as part of the Nate Padavick course for Sketch Book Skool
