Helper Sunday Helper

A few pictures capturing what Sunday looks like in Hong Kong.  It's the helpers day off, so they grab their cardboard boxes, playing cards and food and head into town to meet up with their friends.  It's a lovely weekly ritual, although sometimes the sheer number of helpers you pass in a 2-block stint can be mind-blowing.

The following pictures capture about 5% of all the helpers enjoying their day off in HK.

This picture cracks me up because it reminds me of the time V and I watched as a group of Filipinas attempted to build a cheer-leading pyramid...on concrete...with no safety people or harnesses in place.  It was like waiting for a house of cards to fall.  Here's another group of helpers practicing some dance routine they made up.

It's not all fun and games.  I've seen helpers giving other helpers full-on hair cuts - smock and all!
