What a weird photo!

Front page of today’s South China Morning Post 
And a weird thing to get excited about! The first train on a new extension of our MTR Subway. When I first saw this photo, I thought it was a set up. But no, it’s real. 

Notes: all young boys. All masked. At 4:45 a.m. Many had waited overnight. Weird.

Another note: three years ago the same demographic— young boys — were trashing MTR stations in their “pro-democracy” protests and daubing them with graffiti like 黑铁 hei tie meaning “Black MTR” because it is government owned, and so represents the hated Beijing.
