Thursday/ the new South Island Line

I read about the new South Island Line’s opening just Wednesday, at breakfast this morning, and thought : Man! I will have to go. I will just have enough time before heading out the airport – and so I did.  Here is the South China Morning Post’s report on the US$2.2 billion expansion, 9 years in the making.  The train has no driver, and the cars are decorated inside with colorful pictures of animals and fishes (one of the stops is at the aquarium at Ocean Park).

There is a red-eyed tree frog on board! (These are actually native to Central America down to Columbia, and not to Hong Kong).
These pictures are from inside the new train cars on the South Island Line. It’s hard for me to say which creature I like best : the panda, the sloth or the kangaroo !
