    A little more "on the ground" info about Hong Kong:

    All the English meetings for the week are held in a single sitting (4+ hours), so if you miss one, you miss them all. Plus, the meetings are even less intellectually stimulating than native English speaking countries.

    200+ attendees, 90%+ are single Filipina (domestic live-in) helpers. WT is in Simplified English; sisters run the mics. What's absolutely insane is that these helpers only have 1 day off a week-- Sunday. How do these poor women have to spend 4+ hours of it? Sitting in some dingy KH on the 20th floor of a faceless building in HK. Oh, and more if you decide to go in the ministry after.

    One would think you'd see carts set up all over the place - ferry terminals from Mainland, Macau, New Territories, MTR stations, the pedestrians bridges that criss-cross Central.

    All those places are always swarming with vendors, Falun Gong, anti-Falun Gong, animal rights, Greenpeace, any cause you can think of.

    How many carts has Anon seen? One, at lunchtime; and it was there for less than 2 hours.

    Interesting, is this a change? a directive they've had? - this is from a post three month ago......


    In Hong Kong, however, I noticed that they were a lot more and in a lot more places where I wouldn't think I would see JWs with their carts.


    Also, there were some people from some kind of Christian denomination singing with guitars and other instruments, and the JW cart was right next to them. They looked as if they were part of the other group.
