Countryside in Guangdong Province

We have been to Guangdong for quite a lot of time but we didn't have any chances to take some pictures until this recent trip. This is our family's hometown, and this is also the reason why we have been there for many times. We remembered when we were little, we carried our small digital camera everywhere. That camera was stolen at the end. We were crying all night long because we lost all the images we took. We were so scared to lose another one again... and until this time we were finally brave enough to start taking pictures there again.

This time we were going to Guangdong because of work. We didn't actually have lots of time to take pictures of the surroundings but when we got some free time, we wandered around and see what interested us most.

As someone who is from an urbanised city: Hong Kong, we actually had never seen some live chicken walking around freely. That was very interesting to us and we couldn't help staring at them. This place was so different to what we have known as hometown. Now we are living in the UK, where we found everything here so slow-paced and laid-back in a positive way, and our hometown Hong Kong is full of prosperity and energy. We'd say Guangdong is more like a countryside where you could be a lot closer to the nature, we suppose.

You might expect not to see any skyscrapers in Guangdong province if it's truly a countryside city. But the truth is, it took us almost an hour high-speed train to get to central Guangzhou and we finally saw some skyscrapers there. This was actually something that we didn't expect to see. And we didn't believe that there was one skyscraper even taller than the tallest building in Hong Kong until we googled it. What? We thought we were in countryside an hour before? 

We spent only half day in the city bit and we wish we could have spent more time there. We will be back soon. Good night.
