I spent a few hours in Hong Kong en route to Europe during (last) week-end. The weather was pretty dismal, grey and foggy. Sunday is the day off for the foreign maids working for Hong Kong families. The maids congregate in Central to socialize on their day off. Perhaps I got there late in the day or perhaps the weather was a deterrent, but I remember that Central used to be absolutely packed out when I lived in Hong Kong some 13 years ago. There were nowhere near as many there on the afternoon when I was there now.
