„Homekong“ by The Smiling Buddhas is the 5th travelogue after „Lo“, „Atacama“, „The Alps“, and „Latium“.
Homesick or sick of home are two states of mind that sometimes are quite close together and the best place seems to be somewhere in between.
„Victoria Peak“ is a mountain overlooking Hong Kong – at daybreak, this is a place of pure and unspoilt beauty until the roar of the megapolis starts trembling loud.
Bright lights in all colors keep the „Nightless Night“ on a constant level of attraction but after a while it fades into grey.
„Smooth Ride To Windham“ is the overture before heading into the pleasures of urban nightlife while „Homekong“ sings gently into my ear ‚come home‘ and at the same time ‚leave‘: ‚come home, leave‘ „This Land in Not ….. ?“
