Hong Kong umbrella movement, 5 years ago

Another memories popped up on my fb feeds, our friends from the Lion Rock Institute (LRI) in Hong Kong toured us at the Admiralty to see the ongoing road occupation by thousands of people in the "Umbrella movement." This was after the LRI Reading Club Salon, and before the Economic Freedom Network (EFN) Asia Conference 2014.

I brought my family there, stayed in my hotel room. While I was in the conference, my wife toured the two girls, including the protest area. Elle and Bien were 9 and 5 years old then.
