Last run in Hong Kong, at least for this trip.

Still hot and humid but definitely had a productive meeting and squeezed in a number of good runs.

Unfortunately the DPR was flooded so had to run random neighborhood. Good news is the whole area has mini trails between the houses and parks so still enjoyable with plenty of water stop possibilities in the 80+ heat... Even at 6AM.
