There was a good turnout for a weekday visit to the Sun Yat Sen Museum in the Mid-Levels in Hong Kong, including a couple of our local friends.
It was an enjoyable visit on a very hot day, scheduled at somewhat late notice given the rescheduling of the previously proposed visit to mainland China, to the Whampoa Military Academy.   The museum, recently opened, is very good in an interesting historical building.  Those interested in the history of nationalist China will be aware of how closely Hong Kong (and indeed the UK) was
involved in influencing many of the key figures of the enormous changes in China over the past 120 years or so.
Afterwards, a number of those present went on the for the curry buffet at Zetland Hall, with a few whiskies afterwards to celebrate the continuation of 'the "Union', following the Scottish referendum.
