Lazy Sundays

January 4th, 2011

Maids - web

Sunday. Small groups. All women. Around the HSBC building on Hong Kong Island. Some in a nearby underpass. Others outside the main Post Office. Sharing food and drink. As if enjoying a picnic. Friends chatting. Filipino house maids. Enjoying their one day off each week. A brief escape from the confines of living with their employers.

HSBC - web

Hong Kong is a fast-paced city. Busy, busy, busy. The maids an integral part of life in the former British colony.
