The Albino Crane ~ Hong Kong Docks
The air is a melange of aromas ~ fresh fish frying, the many incenses, the stirring of exotic vegetables in rich
oil, the tang of the open sea, the overly sweet notes of sandalwood and jasmine, and the press of so many people
on the small strategic
island. The Albino Crane is the Brethren home in the Far East. All manner of goods pass
through the shuttered doors,
some fine, some cheap, some old, some somewhat shady. You'll be welcomed,
treated as an honoured guest and please DO see
the back room if asked.
