Tongheli (同和里)

A typical cantonese old house, situated in the south-west of Guangzhou, in the district of Haizhu(海珠), I passed it quite by chance, is a area I didn’t come at all. There is  an other district in the north-west of Guangzhou, the Xiguang (西关), in the district of Liwan(荔湾), much more famous for its old cantonese old houses.

May be because Tonheli (同和里) is less known than Xiguang (西关), and the houses were built by the people not so wealthy, the few old houses left in Tonheli don’t seen to be fixed up like in Xiguang.  I don’t know for how long these old houses can standed up in the modern city.

A charming old house in Tonheli(同和里).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

A University campus in Guangzhou, South China, a city in the city, one can live his entire life inside.

It used to be a suburban of Guangzhou, little by little,  it merged to the urbanization of the big city. The picture was taken(december 2011) outside the underground station which is next to the campus’ main entrance,  people leave their bikes to pick up the metro.

AND, that’s where I spent my childhood and youth.
