Colonial relics in Hong Kong

At Golden Bauhinia Square in Hong Kong, there is a flag raising ceremony conducted by the People’s Liberation Army.  Participating in the ceremony on this occasion were bagpipers and drummers.  I had posted quite a while ago about my very surprising experience at the Star Ferry Pier on the Hong Kong side (the ferry goes between Hong Kong island and the Kowloon peninsula).  While taking a rest and trying to catch some very welcome breezes, I was very surprised to hear bagpipe music.  I was even more surprised to see Chinese pipers and drummers, all in kilts.  Now you can see and hear them for yourself.
