The Hong Kong Handover

Britain’s 99-year lease on Hong Kong was up in 1997, but it’s not easy to integrate a British colony into the larger China. You might recall the fireworks at the handover, but there was a lot more involved in the celebrations of the day, and plans for a transition that continues today. Wendover Productions explains what happened during the handover. They don’t touch on the most noticeable conundrum: Hong Kong traffic still uses the left side of the road, while cars in China travel on the right. -via Digg
