China is a haven for street markets. Every street it seems there is a someone with a bike, truck, or blanket spread out to sell anything from books, DVDs, flowers, fruit, hats, socks, umbrellas, dishes… you name it they probably sell it. I am sure it is knock offs, but for a few dollars you can bargain down to a reasonable price or less than the shops.
I am really busy with work and reports so again this is short and sweet. I would love go capture some better shots, but no time. Only a week to get these all done, plus the regular job stuff. Next week I may have to pass… as that is the weekend before reports are due. It wouldn’t be so bad, but we have a lot of events and things going on now too, which takes away from my planning time and leaves me with no free time.
I have 3 shots, but none from Shanghai where I live. 2 are from the water town a short drive from Shanghai –Zhujiajiao (jshoe ji jaow). As I said street markets set up anywhere and it can be many vendors or just a few. These vendors were selling more interesting things than I have seen on the streets of Shanghai.
The last shot is in Xi’an just outside of the parking area where you can go in to see the Terracotta Warriors. People lined the streets selling apples and pomegranates (YUM) to the thousands of people passing through. They lined the streets and 2 lane highways into town as well.
Stay tuned for more….
