I have just got back from 2 days in Hong Kong. This was my second trip there for work in August. You can feel the tension in the air. I have been going to Hong Kong for 16 years and really fear for what may happen if the protests continue. I was lucky, both my flights were ok but the airport was closed before and after my flights and flights cancelled. The demonstrators approached me to explain their actions and apologize. I love Hong Kong. It is a vibrant city with a mix of eastern and western cultures, perhaps the only city like it in the world. I am fearful that this unrest will only end in tears. Someone will get killed and then there may be action taken that will permanently destroy the image of Hong Kong as the "Pearl Of The Orient".
