Let's Go to China
You can look at a development trip to China two ways. First you can feel the effort of the long flight, long days, crazy factory dinners. You could feel the effort of bouncing down the highway in a van with crappy air conditioning. You just feel the traffic rumble all around you. Or you can appreciate what happens on this piece of earth. A people who work their tail off to produce goods for the rest of the world. The majority of all the running shoes in the world are produced in the area. That's not all though. Look around your house, much of what's there was produced in this part of the world. It's just amazing to watch all the trucks roll by and wonder what's in that container.
Just a bridge on the river.
The River in downtown GZ. A great place to run.
Obviously I wasn't the only one with the idea of getting outside early in the morning.
Care for a swim? A group of locals gathers here every morning for a swim in the river.
There they are, starting or finishing their swim. Let me tell you many swim as much as 1 mile.
You have to be your own lifeguard out here on the River.
