After the world heritage site of the Great Wall, the other thing we did during the Lunar New Year holiday was to look at some of the historical stuff in Tianjin. This is mainly centred on the 8 concession areas (There were 9 but America gave hers to Britain), in the same way that Shanghai has the concessions so too does Tianjin. Although to a large extent the original sutff has gone, there are still some interesting things to see. For example Pu Yi's house is there which is OK but not the most interesting thing, even if it is important.
So, I've returned to probably my two favourite Tianjin themes... The Station and the frozen river. I just can't get enough of the space age architecture of the station, which was just incredibly busy as most of Chinagets on a train during that week it seems.
More or less 6 months after moving to China I thought I should probably see what all the fuss was about and get out and see the wall. The wall is about 8500KM long so the first question is which bit? Most people seem to head up to Beijing to see it and I am sure we will too in the end.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
