To get there from our apartment you merely go down the stairs next to our building and then down the stairs by the LKF Hotel. Since it is all downhill, it takes about two minutes or so. Not last night. As soon as we started down the stairs we could see the crowds milling (and that was at the halfway point). By the time we reached the second set of stairs we were already wall to wall.
About the only thing you could do was head into the fray and enjoy the scenery. There certainly was lots to see. We mingled with the young...
and the old.
There were the creepy...
...and the funny.
Some looked vaguely familiar.
There were real cops...
... and faux ones, ...
... and interesting sights wherever you turned.
We decided to stop at our favorite watering hole, Cochrane's, for a painkiller and some fun with friends.
(Please note the small pumpkin headband - I am the only one in costume.)
As our evening was winding down and Lan Kwai Fong was still heating up, we headed for home. The streets were still jammed.
And on our way up Arbuthnot hill we saw perhaps the most creative of costumes.
I'll leave it up to your imagination to figure it out.
And by late this afternoon most of the revelers were still home recovering except for three little ones who just loved posing for the camera.
