Postcard #8 • Bruce Lee Statue in Victoria Harbour

(HONG KONG)- Every legend has a statue at least in their birthplace; Bruce Lee is not the exception. This is his statue, in the Avenue of Stars at the Tsim Sha Tsui town, near Victoria Harbour in his country of birth, Hong Kong.  It's a great way to honor this Martial Arts Legend, unknown to so many teenagers nowdays. The Avenue of Stars is the Hong Kong Walk of Fame to honor celebrities of the Hong Kong's film industries. It is modelled in Hollywood's one. Ray sent me this postcard and tells me that Victoria Harbor is one of the most importants landmarks in Hong Kong. Postcard is postmarked and has three stamps that shows an aquarius zodiac symbol and constellation, the scarlet minivet bird, and a Hong Kong red bus. 

(HONG KONG)- Toda leyenda tiene una estatua, al menos en su lugar de nacimiento. Bruce Lee no es la excepción. Esta es su estatua, en la Avenida de las Estrellas, localidad de Tsim Sha Tsui, cerca del Puerto Victoria, en su natal Hong Kong. Es una grandiosa manera de honrar a esta leyenda de las artes marciales, un desconocido para las generaciones que vienen subiendo. La avenida de las estrellas es un bulevar para honrar a las celebridades de la industria del cine de Hong Kong. Ray me envió esta postal y me dice que el Puerto Victoria es uno de los lugares más importantes de Hong Kong y principal atractivo turístico. La postal tiene sellos de cancelado y tres estampillas: una muestra el símbolo zodiacal de Acuario y la constelación; otra muestra un ave y la última un bus rojo de Hong Kong.
