Fan Ling to Sha Tau Kok Run

It is not a particularly difficult run from Fan Ling to Sha Tau Kok along Sha Tau Kok Road.  It is a straight road, very easy to follow.  But it is really hot today.  Hence the 10 kilometres feels more like 20.  

The first half of the road is heavily built-up.  

As it moves away from Fan Ling, there are more open spaces, and life seems to slow down a bit.  

There used to be a checkpoint near the junction with Luk Keng Road.  

The area beyond that check point used to be restricted.  Now we can enter freely.  

At one point, I saw a big lump of black on the sidewalk.  For a split second, I thought it was a huge cow pie.  It turned out, however, to be an actual cow.  

There are some rather nice scenes in the former restricted area.  

The checkpoint is now very close to the border with Mainland China.  

There isn’t much to do besides having a bowl of toufufa.  Then I had to turn back.
