2. Aberdeen Harbour and the Jumbo Kingdom

Aberdeen is an area of Hong Kong in the southern district. Aberdeen Harbor is home to hundreds of people living on fishing junks. It is here that the contrast between modern and traditional Hong Kong life is particularly stark.

A boat driven by solar energy panels and is designed to clean the sea water with a big bucket in front which could collect rubbish on the surface of the sea water in Aberdeen. One staff drives the boat and another picks up rubbish in the sea water with a long tool. The boat is called Aqua Explorer and is in partnership with HSBC, a bank in Hong Kong. The project is called 'Clean Waterways Initiative'. The traditional design of such kind of harbour cleaning boat is called 'Witch of the sea' (海上女巫)as it has a bucket to collect the rubbish in the sea water, which is like a witch with a broom.
