Night in the Typhoon Shelter

At night the view of the shore lines of Hong Kong and Ap Lai Chau Islands sparkle with the light of luxury high rise condos.  The Shelter is quiet, only a very few of the boats have anyone aboard, and fewer still show any sign of activity at this hour.  There is only the sound of the occasional sampan passing by, and sometimes the sight of a sailing junk's lights ghosting in to her home anchorage after an evening's dinner party cruise.  The Shelter sleeps peacefully while the city is wide awake.
