The race this year may be won by a short, half-wet calf’s nose as it pokes around the Kowloon Peninsula and associated areas; gongs should also be given to the large areas east and west of there, on the Island itself and the northeast – what did they find inside Nam Shan Tung? Have they discovered a rare earth we didn’t even know we needed? The southeast corners of anything should be avoided unless you’ve prepared bales of good karma to dispense.
