This book is about British Hong Kong, as well as Portuguese Macau, two colonial outposts during the first two decades of my life. It’s also a record of uprootedness, of living through memories while experiencing the present intensely. I feel a strong urge to imitate Lawrence Durrell’s rapturous evocation of hot and teemingAlexandria when I write. x. Pilgrimages: Memories of Colonial Macau and Hong Kong. A Pilgrim to Porto Fado singing actually sounded quite like Cantonese opera, I told myself as the train raced through the hilly countryside of Spain towards northern Portugal. Like José Saramago, I thought of myself as a pilgrim and a traveller, not a tourist.
