This was the last time that I went out cycling in Shaoguan. There was a mountain quite close to the city which seemed to have a viewing platform quite high up. So, I thought I would go up there to get some nice shots of the city from above. But I was in for a surprise.Dies war das letzte Mal, daß
Around the time of my visits to Macao & Humen, I also walked around Shaoguan a bit, in the city proper, meeting people & just taking pictures. Today I will share some of the last impressions I had in 2007. There will be one more cycling post & some comprehensive stuff later.Um die Zeit meiner Besu
After having spent a few hours at the Naval Battle Museum, we finally went to Humen proper.Nachdem wir einige Stunden im & am Seeschlachtmuseum verbracht hatten, fuhren wir endlich ins eigentliche Humen.
The first thing I noticed there was the smell of the canals. There are quite a few cana
After our trip to Macao we went to Humen to visit my then-girlfriend's sister. Humen is part of greater Dongguan, has almost 600,000 inhabitants & is a largely unremarkable place.Nach unserem Ausflug nach Macao fuhren wir nach Humen, um die Schwester meiner damaligen Freundin zu besuchen. Humen is
After walking with me for most of the first day in Macao, my then-girlfriend was too tired to go on. She had found herself a bench at the coast to sleep on. Since I wouldn't be able to sleep like that, even if I wanted to, I decided to walk around a bit to make more pictures.Nachdem sie mich am er
Since I had more than enough time after the end of the semester & I didn't know whether I would ever come back to Canton, I decided to visit Macao. Being a cheapskate, I didn't book a hotel there & just wanted to walk around for 2 days. Nevertheless, my then-girlfriend wanted to accompany me, assu
This time no cycling, just walking. Thought about putting it in a "Cycling the countryside" post, anyway. But all of today's picture are from inside the campus of Shaoguan University & I was just walking around to take pictures.Diesmal kein Radeln, sondern nur Latschen. Hatte überlegt, das heutige
Last time I showed you preparations & training for the dragon boat races in Shaoguan. Such races are traditionally held at the time of the Dragon Boat Festival. Since I had never before seen anything like that, I went there with my then girlfriend to watch the races.Beim letzten Mal zeigte ich Vor
In my last cycling post, I already mentioned that I had noticed dragon boats on the river. So, 2 days later I went downtown again (by bus, though) to see whether something was going on already.In meinem letzten Umgebungsradeln erwähnte ich schon die Drachenboote, die ich auf dem Fluß gesehen hatte
This time it's not so much the countryside, but the city. The time in Shaoguan was coming to an end. It was exam time & I had not too many chances left for cycling around. So, I took pictures right & left, when I got out. There was one major event still waiting for me, though.Dieses Mal geht es ni
On my second day in Qingyuan I mostly did the same as on the first day & what I usually do if I come to a new place: I walked around.Während des zweiten Tages in Qingyuan machte ich das, was ich auch schon am ersten Tag gemacht hatte, wie immer, wenn ich in einem neuen Ort bin: Ich latschte rum.
Mid May 2007 a student of mine invited me to visit her family in Qingyuan. For some reason I accepted the invitation (which I usually did not) & went for a trip to her family home in Qingxin district of Qingyuan.Mitte Mai 2007 lud mich eine Studentin ein, ihre Familie in Qingyuan zu besuchen. Aus
