Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Hong Kong-Macau-PRC

All photos taken on May 5, 1982.

Today was the tour we were most looking forward to on the Hong Kong portion of our trip. We were headed to Macau by hydrofoil and once there, we would board a bus for a short tour into the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Fantastico to see this view of Macau. I spent four or five days here a few years back during Chinese New Year and loved it. Barely spent more than a few hours in a casino to boot. You’ve got me digging out my own shots of St. Paul’s. Would’ve loved to have seen Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial School, in fact I’m putting that on our list in the very unlikely event we ever make it back to China. I did make it to Nanjing though, a city stuffed full of Sun Yat Sen sights, including his mausoleum.

    1. It was a real bit of history, before it became Las Vegas East. The school was an interesting stop and all of the children came out to perform. I am sure the toilet blocks have improved from those days. Seeing the simple rural sights of China likely does not happen any more, so we feel very lucky to have been there at that time. Thanks for reading and commenting Leighton. Allan

  2. What an interesting part of the world, Allan, especially back in the day. I always found it interesting how rice grows – it is a precise science involving specialized technology as well as unique planting and harvesting equipment and methods. Thanks for the tour 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. It was definitely a time capsule, looking back to the way things used to be done. Rice has bee planted and harvested for thousands of years in Asia and the cycle continues. Although, in Japan, consumption of other grains surpassed that of rice in the early 2,000s. Thanks for reading Aiva. Have a wonderful Thursday. Allan

    1. I still have nightmares about the toilet., It was a great cure for my upset stomach on the day, to be sure. That little glimpse into China is likely all we will get. It was another way of life in a different era. Thanks for reading. Allan
