The pictures below are some I took during our two weeks of touring and performing around the country. As is the case with all photos on my blog, you can click on them to see them larger; this is especially helpful for the wider, panoramic ones.
|Shenzhen -- Shenzhen Concert Hall.|
|Shenzhen -- China's public art seems (to me) to heavily value symbolism. This gigantic statue of interlocking hands was outside our hotel.|
|Fuzhou -- From giant residential towers to dilapidated buildings, people will live anywhere.|
|Dalian -- Sunrise, probably around 5:00 a.m. While the window was indeed dirty, Dalian also just has a lot of smog.|
|Beijing -- We stopped in the restaurant next to the hotel for lunch and were taken into a private dining room, complete with a flat screen TV and private bathroom! Communal dining with lazy susans is very common.|
|Wuhan -- This is a panoramic shot from my hotel room on the umpteenth floor. |
(Yes, it's overcast, but it's also smoggy.)
Wuhan -- I think Daniel put it best when he said, "Traffic rules aren't rules, they're merely guidelines." I shot this from my hotel room, looking down onto the major intersection below, for one full traffic cycle. In China, right-of-way is determined by size: semis, buses, trucks, cars, motorbikes, and then pedestrians. Pay special attention to the people on foot and bikes, and how they just go, regardless of the traffic flow. I hope you'll find this video as fascinating as I do!
