That Tung Chung picture looks so unreal. Hong Kong appears to be the polar opposite of Norway. Here, you can live thirty minutes away from your nearest neighbour, or commute for four hours on your way to school. People live in the middle of absolutely nowhere. At the same time, it appears that wherever you go, some guy has put up his house a few hundred metres up the hillside. There are bus stops serving three houses, all lying ten minutes away from it in opposite directions. Norwegians really like to live alone, it seems. Yet you count that guy who live a further half hour into the forest "a close neighbour".

Yet in Hong Kong, or many other places in China for that matter, people are packed denser than trees. To me, it just feels unreal seeing so many people living that close to each other, those giant buildings each housing more people than most municipalities in my country. The tallest residential blocks over here are 10-15 stories tall, at the most, and they are usually spaced several hundred metres apart. Really putting things into perspective. Thanks for enriching me.

You are right, if I could affort some penthouse in Hong Kong it would be nice, but if I had to choose between such a tiny apartment in a 10 000 residents block or a big landhouse in Norway I would definately choose Norway.
