If you think the paparazzi in the U.S. are bad, you should see the fans in Hong Kong. Bus fans, that is. Apparently there are thousands of fans of public transportation there who actually stalk buses on their routes to get pictures of their favorites. The photos are traded online, as are videos of bus rides and gossip about changes in bus models and routes. Bus souvenirs are also sold in shops, such as miniature bus models.
But why?? The Wall Street Journal has the answer.
