Flower Market Street and Yuen Po Street Bird Garden

Some photos from Flower Market Street in Kowloon:

Flower Market Street ends at Yuen Po Street Bird Garden. Want a bird? This is the place to find one. People also bring their pet birds here to hang out in the park and socialize with other birds. And to stare through the bars of their cages at the feral birds that flock about to taunt them and pick up stray birdseed.

Then a walk through a fairly typical street market before it started raining. It was a crazy storm with horizontal rain and lightning, but was only categorized as "yellow rain" - this just means that kindergartens are shut down. "Red rain" shuts down elementary and high schools, and "black rain," well, you just pray.
