I recently came across pictures that I took in 2014, when visiting Guangzhou. A bit burned, bittersweet, they look like memoria from a golden age, traces of long-lost eldorado.
Tianzifang, Shanghai, China. I visited the Tianzifang Quarter for the first time in Septembre 2013, together with a very good friend of mine, as it was a “requirement” for our Chinese Society class. (Photos here)
On Thursday, January 23, 2014, as the sun started to slide down and hide behind the mountains, we arrived in Lijiang.
Lijiang is an old water town, with hundreds of small canals and bridges, which is the reason why it is also known as Dayan, the big inker, in Chinese language. The town is located in Lijiang County, a rural district located in the north of Yunnan province, where it is surrounded by tall mountain chains. As a consequence of a massive investment in infrastructures, it is now possible to arrive by bus, but also by train and plane to Lijiang.
