Our World -Beautiful Hong Kong

 Iwas in Hong Kong last week, and I am always amazed by its beauty and energy.
 The skyscrapers seem softened by the fog.
 Boats of all hues sail in its waters.
A pengun in Hong Kong!The Ocean Park does a great job ofconservation.

Honnavar- the City of Gold

 Honnavar was once, truly a city of gold. It was a prosperous town with pleny of European gold coming in from its exports of spices and chemicals. Queen Channabhaira Devi who ruled over it and kept the Portuguese at bay, built great waterways and canals from the river Sharavathi.
 The municipal office is housed in a colonial building.
 Mangrove line the sides of the river, which are home to many different birds, as well as crocodiles.
 The river joins the sea at Honnavar. Tiny white flowers of aquatic plants dot the canals.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday for making the meme happen every week.
