Nanchang's red flag

Nanchang's red flag

Nanchang is very proud of its Communist history. No wonder then that red flags adorn public squares everywhere.

One Chinese: a dragon. Two Chinese...

a pig.

My daughter teaches English to children, one of which whose boredom I used to have her perform a little dance for me. Hen ke ai means very cute in Chinese.

What do the Chinese do when they turn the night into day ? They construct high-rises, and how metaphorically justified that this timelessness will serve to erect the Shangrila in Nanchang (here pictured towards the right). Right next to the posh hotel: signs of the new subway station that is intended to whiz commuters with subterranean speed under the river Gan toward any workaholic destination they so desire.

Construction everywhere
