Anhui, China (Part 3) & Suzhou, China (Part 8)

In the month of December in 2013, I took a trip to China to visit relatives and to travel places and take photos. On this trip, I visited Jiangsu (江苏), Anhui (安徽), Hong Kong (香港), and Macau (澳门). I took many photos on this trip and I will be splitting them into many parts. I will do my best in these blog post to describe the photos, however due to the lack of map data for China (on Google) and my horrible Chinese, I may not be able to give you too much details on certain things. At the time of visit, the smog in China is very heavy. In many of the photos, you will see what looks to be fog or haze, but it is the smog (pollution) in China. Be warned, that the pollution in China is not at safe levels. I started coughing less than one week into the trip, and I did not recover until the beginning of March this year (2014). Many individuals in China had the same cough I got. If you haven't done so, you can view my vlogs here. I already posted all my vlogs (of the entire trip) on Youtube, but these photos will come out in parts.

12/2013,我去中国旅游。我去了江苏、安徽、香港、和澳门玩。我会把照片分成很多部分。我的中文没有那么好,我不能翻译所有的东西。 我去中国的时候有很大的雾霾。我咳嗽咳了好几个月。我这次旅游也拍了一些视频,你可以在这里看。

The photos for today are from Anhui, China (安徽, 中国) and from Suzhou, Jiangsu, China (苏州, 江苏, 中国). I finish off the rest of the photos in Hefei (合肥), and then show you photos from Sanhe Ancient Town (三河古镇), and Tong Cheng (同城). Then I will have a few photos from Suzhou, Jiangsu, China (苏州, 江苏, 中国).

今天的照片是在安徽和苏州拍的。我会有合肥,三河古镇,痛陈,苏州的照片。

Continuing from my last post. This is a photo of the remains of my great grandfather's house. Only part of a mud wall is left. On the right, 2 of my relatives are walking towards the house.

A storage shed made out of branches and trees. Building material is stored inside. These are pretty common out in rural China.

Our relatives (that took us to our other relatives that took us to the grave site) lives in Sanhe Ancient Town (三河古镇). They have their own restaurant there and insisted that we go eat (and for me to take photos). So back in the historic town now.

 Back to Tong Cheng (桐城), where our closest relatives live, and where we were staying while in Anhui (安徽). This is a photo from the downtown area of the city.

A small pathway in Tong Cheng (桐城). These brick roads looks original. This is the last photo I shot in Anhui (安徽). The photo was shot at night, but I white balanced it which is why it looks normal. After this, I went to sleep for the night, then the next whole day, I was on a train back to Suzhou (苏州). 
这个是桐城的石头路。这是我安徽最后一张照片。我下一天坐火车回苏州。坐火车华丽一天的时间。

The day after the train ride, our friends in Suzhou (苏州) decided to treat us to Szechuan cuisine before we fly off for a trip to Hong Kong (香港) and to see our relatives there. I shot 2 photos in the restaurant. 
回到苏州,我们的朋友叫我们去吃四川菜。

Here is one of the dishes. Not sure what it was but it was very good. 
很好吃哦!

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. I fly to Hong Kong (香港) after this. Next time I will continue with photos from Hong Kong, China S.A.R. (香港特区). Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members! Also, if you want to get notifications when I post up more photos, "Like" us on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and Google+.

我下一次飞到香港去玩。下一次的照片是在香港特区拍的。
