Coming Up for Air:The bus stops here

【明報專訊】On most days when I go to work I take the bus. This bus has a route that has it stop at Pik Uk prison on Clear Water Bay Road. It is a stop that at one time was little used. That changed after 2019, however. Now it is not unusual to see a group of four, five, six people waiting for the bus at the Pik Uk stop. Nor is it unusual to see visitors lining up to get into the prison. There are young people, middle-aged people, elderly folks, and sometimes children as well. Car traffic might still be light in that part of Clear Water Bay but foot traffic is definitely up.
