Comments and Pictures







































So, I think I successfully rigged my blog to allow comments from non-blogger.com members. Give it a whirl and see if it works!

Also, I think blogs without pictures are boring, so I'm posting some random pictures to keep you enticed and coming back for more. Enjoy!

P.S. All of these pictures are from the bird market (rows and rows of bird cages, feeders, and actual birds, too). In the top picture with the little square cages, there is a bird in each one, and they are just stacked up in the corner. I feel for those birds the same sadness I feel for the beta fish I see at Wal-Mart in the states.

You're right - I can comment freely now! Sweet. It's like universal suffrage.

Are they big on birds in HK? I guess the small pet is probably ideal there. Do they also keep a lot of gerbils and hamster types?

Yes, birds are big here (in popularity, not size). Matt has seen people take their birds for walks in the park in their cages. Weird. As for hamsters, I think they are likely more popular for lunch. I don't like to think about it.

that's incredible. i think i would go see those birds everyday.

The smell of all the pretty birdies is enough to discourage daily visits, not to mention the bird flu.
