Anqing, China

It has been two months since arriving to Anqing in China – our new home for 10 months.

Where do I begin?

Anqing is a different world.. It’s definitely what you call ‘real China’ with little Western influence.. There are old men and women doing tai chi in the parks, playing Chinese checkers or cards outside shops with a cigarette hanging outside the side of their mouths. The uneven concrete streets are occupied with alleyways, old apartments, restaurants, freshly roasted chestnuts, shops, bake houses, vendors and markets dotted around the place.  At night, the city is lit up with bright lights, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with the clusters of KTV (Karaoke bars) to choose from.  Check out the full page on Anqing here or hover above 🙂
