Notes: The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, which can been seen towards the left, was built next to Victoria Harbour on an area of reclaimed land.  The initial phase was completed in 1997, but it has been expanded several times since then.  It has 5 exhibition halls, 2 convention halls, 2 theaters, 52 meeting rooms and 7 restaurants, and it hosts around 45 international trade fairs each year.

Notes: This card gives me no indication where this fireworks display happened or why.  oyasam did say that there was a fireworks display in her town at the end of July.  Based on this article, I believe she is talking about the Sumida River Fireworks Festival.  It is one of the oldest and most famous firework displays in Japan.
