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
I have already written about the Dajian Temple before, but back then I thought that I had never ventured inside. To my surprise, though, I actually did. I had completely forgotten about it. Only when I reached the folder with the pictures of mid-May 2007, I noticed this. Still don't remember anyth
Quite a while since my last Shaoguan cycling post, but I just don't get anything done at the moment. Contrarily, back then, beginning of May 2007, I was probably a bit too busy to go out cycling. I ventured outside the university once in a while, but not for longer tours.Das letzte Umgebungsradeln
In my last "Cycling Shaoguan" post I already mentioned the public cemetery I had found & that on a hill nearby there was another less official graveyard. Because the latter is very interesting in & of itself & provided lots of pictures, this post is entirely devoted to it.In meinem letzten Beitrag
Just like last time, there is a mix of life & death in today's post. It was still mid April 2007 & I ventured west from Shaoguan University, towards the city proper.Genau wie im letzten Beitrag gibt es heute eine Mischung von Leben & Tod. Es war immer noch Mitte April 2007 & ich fuhr Richtung Stad
After so much (night-)life, there must be death. Of which there is a lot in this post. Today's pictures are from mid-April 2007 & were mostly taken in the fields around Shaoguan.Wo es viel (Nacht-)Leben gibt, ist der Tod nicht fern. Davon gibt es in diesem Beitrag etwas mehr als normal. Die heutig
End of March 2007, this time no golf course. Today's post is more focused on the fields.Es ist Ende März 2007, mal ohne Golfplatz. Heute geht es eher um die Felder.
Many small farmers still used centuries-old methods to work the fields. Horribly hard work, I suppose. Why did humans ever giv
We're back in March 2007, after a detour to November 2006 because I had deleted the folder with the pictures of the golf club house. Much of this post was also shot in & around that golf course, because the environment there was really nice & easily available via bike.& wir sind zurück im März 200
