Hey just before the first big hit of covid happened last year there was a lot of unrest in Hong Kong against the Chinese, that all seemed to die away quite suddenly. Is there still unrest on HK?

i think you are 4000 kilometres away but we hear nothing on the news here.

thought i would ask anyway

Hi there @Kiwi-crypto,

The air travel distance between New Zealand and Hong Kong is closer to 9,500 kilometres. 😊

I haven't heard any more news of unrest in Hong Kong either. It seemed to have quiet down, or maybe it was squashed by China.

By the way, I am from Singapore - in case you thought that I was from Hong Kong.
