Countryside in Guangdong Province 廣東省的農村生活

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


其實我已經去過廣東很多次了,但是每次都沒有機會拍到什麼照片。這裡是我媽媽的家鄉,也是因為這樣,我來過了很多次。我還記得小時候,我最喜歡就是帶著一部小小的數碼相機到處拍。最後相機因為被偷了,我之後都不敢再帶相機去了⋯⋯ 因為當時我哭了一整晚,不是因為相機沒了,而是裡面的照片全沒了⋯⋯ 


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

這次來到廣東工作,也沒有辦法害怕帶相機去了哈哈!由於工作的關係,我其實也沒有很多時間可以到處拍照,但只要有空閑的時間,我都會到外面找零感!


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

從小我就在香港長大,所以對於農村有一定的好奇感。我從來都沒有見過到處亂走的雞,我覺得很有趣哈哈!而且這裡跟我對家鄉的印象完全很不一樣,因為我的家鄉便是香港了。現在我在英國住了幾年,發現這裡的生活節奏很輕鬆、很慢、很舒適,而香港則是一個相反。這裡跟大多的農村大同小異,就是跟城市有點距離且很接近大自然。


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

你可能會以為廣東省就只是一個農村,而且不會想到能看到高樓大廈。但其實,只要坐大約一個小時的高鐵,就已經到達廣州市中心,而且會見到很多你在農村不會看到的東西。最不能相信的是這裡居然有比香港的樓更高的商業大樓。我明明一個小時前好像還在拍雞的喔?


I spend only half day in the city bit and I wish I could have more time spending there. I will be back soon. Good night.

我只有半天的時間在市中心遊覽,時間還真的不夠用!我會再來的!晚安啦!
