Jesus on the 16th Step

By far the best way to zoom around Hong Kong is by subway, known as the MTR,  and with our handy Octopus Pass Cards we beep through the turnstiles and jet around underground in clean and efficient style for pennies a trip, bypassing all the noisy congestion above ground.

This January Uncle Jim and I were trotting down the subway steps in Kowloon at exit 6 of the Tsim Sha Tsui entrance on the Tsuen Wan Line (easier done than said) when we both stopped dead in our tracks.  Then I whipped out the camera and started snapping.

Right there, on the 16th step from the bottom of the staircase, was what looked like an image of Jesus.  Now Auntie is not a religious person but she sure can recognize Jesus when she sees Him.  

Since most Chinese are Buddhists, no one else seemed interested in our discovery nor did anyone pause to take a look but instead, politely walked around us.

You can decide for yourself if you see what we saw. 

Just another interesting day on the busy streets of Hong Kong....
