my trip to guangzhou in pictures

November 29, 2010, I left Guam for Hong Kong with my dad via Continental Airlines. We stayed at Nikko Hotel for a couple of nights. He was meeting with his old friends from 30 years ago. They were having some sort of reunion I guess. I just followed my dad and his friend for the most part.

HONG KONG








After 2 days in HK, we went on a 2 hour train ride to Shenzhen (China). Got there with maybe one too many luggages -- China's taxi cab trunks are hella small. We ate at home for most of our trip. Did enough walking to last us a whole year. I should have bought more stuff but a lot of their clothes were for winter. The young people are pretty style conscious these days. If only I were returning back to America instead of Guam, I could have used some of those coats and sweaters and boots. OH EM JAY. They have so many shoes. SO SO SO many shoes. I only bought two pairs... of sneakers -__-. Things are really cheap, just the way I like it...but I don't think I can live there without a translator :(

GUANGZHOU



























hello, byebye.

All photos were taken by me, so if there's any back story or question you wanna know about a photo leave a comment and I'll try to explain/answer to the best of my ability :). and also I was lazy to write up captions for each pictures. so ask meee if you're curious.

OH AND MERRY CHRISTMAS! OR HAPPY HOLIDAYS. whatever :P

@ justbloglah Sorry, I'm not really familiar with that area. but both pictures are of the same place. It's not in Vietnam, it's in Guangzhou, China. My dad just said it was called Litchi Bay... I can't really find much information on it on Google either. sorry about that >_<..

You really are a good photographer, I hope you're aware. I love that dog. Also, are those kiwi seeds in the yellow bowl?
