Not so long ago, and it is literally in the fall of that year happened to be in China.
Yes, it was not a Chinese village with paddy fields and the resorts of Hainan, and a trade-industrial China.
Guangzhou, Ningbo, Yiwu, Yongkang ...
I wanted to write about cars, look at their pictures and realized that the car they almost there, so I guess this is not limited.
So we go ...
We flew by China Southern Airlines. Everyone said yyy ... Chinese ... yes you che, etc.
And in fact, if it is not new, it is very fresh Boeings and Airbuses. When loaded to fly from Guangzhou to Ningbo, it was practically new Airbus. (I can not forget, a few years ago, flew to Hong Kong Aeroflot battered a Boeing ...)
Will 121 photos.
I know that the plane can not take pictures, but still ...
Quite a large part of China's uninhabited mountains. I can not believe in overcrowded ... But there are places where they are still mastering.

5. The police even (dare I say it) moved here in such electric vehicles. (Probably Chinese origin)
6. Guangzhou itself is the most likely business center. There is a large exhibition center, where during the exhibition floor sezzhaetsya world.
Life is there to say that cheap. And purely Chinese goods on the shelves are not many. There are of course all sorts of markets, where they sell all, but in shopping centers at all "adult". If you want to buy electronics or armor, you will be unpleasant upset prices that are higher than in Moscow.
But still on the streets of this city, there is something "Chinese" ... it is the smell of some strange food, which is prepared on every street corner.
Not everywhere, of course, but there is. You can get out of the luxury hotel on the street and hear the smell of sewage ...
8. By the way, the Chinese cars on the streets no more, or even an order of magnitude smaller than we Zhiguli. And it is clear, as in China, are going to the domestic market brands such as Audi, WV, Buick (by the way, very much), Toyota, MB (they called it a Mercedes BENZ ... apparently difficult for them, BMW.
Interestingly, there are going to such a model, which is no longer anywhere in other countries ... So many purely Japanese models with the left rudder (Toyota Crown, Mark X / Raiz, Honda Odyssey, etc.) or for example BMW 535Li, Audi A6L ... yes ... is elongated 5-ka and A6. They are very common.
10. By the way, with the roads in China, everything is fine. Well, anyway, where was I all right, even too much. True Chinese go to put it mildly is very specific. For this our dear citizens shooting each other out in trauma. They are the norm, such as in the middle to drive stupidly counter 200-300 meters ... Well, do not unfold well ... Especially a fine of 100 yuan ... In our 500 rubles.
That's one of the objectives of the trip - Kontonskaya exhibition. About her I will not talk too much. Let's just say that there are many, and everything from Chinese shnyaga specifically, finishing products such quality that the Chinese call them indecent ...

13. Chinese food basically sedobnoe. They generally different in different areas of the kitchen. For example, on the south one can hardly find a Peking duck. Apparently she and the Peking ... But in Beijing, I was not.
But when visiting all restaurants need to be careful in choosing. As you know, the Chinese eat everything. And everything. If you take the chicken, then usually it is not cleared from the bones, chopped together with the head and legs apart and so willing.
In some places just do not have an English menu, but ... Eat horseradish make out what it is and of who cooked.
Lots of fresh seafood - Shanghai crabs (just the season, shrimp, all kinds of seashells, etc.
Basically, everything is clear and easy to understand, why not become easier ...

22. Quickly finished with the exhibition, flying to Ningbo. It is a little to the north (about 1000 km).
By the way, in Ningbo strange fighting for the environment, and there it is really not very good, since in addition to the port around this town just an incredible amount of plants, in short there are forbidden to motor scooters. Ie not quite to the motor, and with a gasoline engine. But allow electric, on whom the Chinese in large numbers and move, and so the same chaotic.
