Then, we went to the Heritage Museum in Sha Tin, as planned yesterday night. Amazing time spent over there, free admittance today. We have seen old artcrafts, Lingnan School paintings, Bruce Lee Museum: a must! You won’t see any image about Bruce Lee Museum because of the strict rules about copyright and privacy laws.

How did we reach the place? Even if there’s is a quicker way to reach the museum, by the East Rail Line from Hung Hom, getting off in Sha Tin, this very first time we caught the Red Line at Tsim Sha Tsui. Stopped in Yau Ma Tei, got the interconnection, Green Line, the Kwun Tong Line, stopping then in Kowloon Tong. From Kowloon Tong we caught the Light-Blue Line interconnection, and stopped in Tai Wai.

Now we have to spend some time on Bruce Lee and the Lingnan School. Bruce Lee, as a fighter, an actor and a philosopher, has been a fundamental topic for our and other generations. In this way it’s important to notice that even older generation remember very well Bruce. When we talk with our mothers and fathers, for example, we all share this topic, a topic which is even a place of mind. A way to process your life experience, a language to explain your and our stories.

Relating to the Lingnan School, we have to understand that its fortunes belong in the fusion between eastern and western way of paint and being concerned about the arts of both continents. This art style, in which watercolours perform a main role, was the result of a sort of merging between these two point of views.

After having visited this amazing museum, we walked around the building for few minutes, taking some pictures with the Bruce Lee statue, and then caught the MTR to go back home,at about 5 p.m..
