When I travel, I try to take a lot of photos but only end up showing a few of them. Even though I've been to China about 7 times already, I still manage to see some things that gives me a bit of a culture shock.... other things I see are just different so they just get marked off as "cool" lol. Here's a few photos from my most recent trip:
The view looked so nice at night.
A pic from the next morning, in front of the office. I mentioned, during one of my previous trips, how old people in China seem to be much stronger than the ones in the US. You will hardly ever catch an old woman trying to carry big bags like this in the states. You can't really see that well, but she has some foldable carts hanging off of the far left end of the pole. I've seen old ladies out here pulling wagons like they were horses. Its no joke. It must be all of the fresh food they eat.
Meet my friend, Sally :). She's one of the developers that we work with. She was the one who gave me the Chinese herbal tea blend.
We spend a lot of time on the road, traveling back and forth to the factories. This is one of the mansions I noticed on the side of a mountain. I would love to just go inside for a tour.
I'm always seeing something strange on the menus. I can't with the flesh & blood!
At the end of our trip, we always have to fly out to Hong Kong before flying back to the US. This is what I saw in the airport. Its pretty expensive, so dried fish bladders must be a delicacy. #cultureshock
