    Hong Kong.

    The Chinese way - the funeral of Richest Merchant in Hong Kong seems more merry than melancholy to our western ideas.

    M/S of an elaborately decorated coffin on a platform carried on the shoulders of a dozen or so traditionally dressed Chinese men, they are followed by a procession of mourners walking through the Hong Kong streets. M/S of more men carrying a traditionally dressed woman seated on a throne, she covers her face as they pass the camera, another woman on a similar throne follows. M/S of men wearing paper costumes resembling birds and creatures walking through the streets.
