Something old, something new

Cityscape IMG_20151215_111120_HDR_zpsrunxehsvGuangzhou, like most (if not all) of China is modernizing it’s infrastructure by building newer buildings. New and ultra-swanky is one thing, but to uproot whole districts and put them into apartment blocks is the current trend. The displaced villagers are now novel-rich property owners overnight. This fact sadly means that they sometimes have ethics of a beggar when coming to money.Morals of a beggar IMG_20151219_165601_HDR_zpslvwqoh3x.jpg

Still, I’ve walked around old established areas of Guangzhou and felt a sense of community and belonging. Photographically, it leads to some very interesting juxtaposition of buildings and people.hdr

Good fortune, at a small price

Good luck placards IMG_8999EDIT2_zpsxuajcduk.jpgVisiting Asia, it’s not unlikely that you may go to a temple. Temples of course, are a place of worship for the locals. Often, the temples will have to support themselves, so it is not uncommon that prayer tablets are sold for the follows to put their wishes on, and to have Buddha to answer them. The other source of income for a temple is through donation. Though, with no photos, I will have to say that the temple we visited compared well with others I’d seen, especially those in Korea.
