Chai Wan




View Larger Map


I quite like the day before a race, as it's a good excuse to have a lie in, then go out very steady on the bike, pop a camera in the back pocket and do a bit of exploring. Today I discovered the Chai Wan Masjid & Muslim cemetery, hidden away down a concrete path, where I took this quick photo looking across the hill side. It's quite a mad bit of hillside with the tower blocks (many in cruciform arrangement) so close, but I really like the way how all the graves appear as contours for the hill on the satellite imagery. Don't think there'll be much time to appreciate the view in tomorrow's team time trial...
