The Joys Of Guiyang, a Photo Safari

Is it only Guangdong province that has proper youth discos? Here in Guizhou it’s all boring KTV, i.e. sitting in a small rented room by yourself or with two friends, singing karaoke and being waited on by people like the above. I counted 20 of them lined up to say welcome when we walked in to ask for directions to a bar. They gave us an address… in a different town.

Excellent hovelage. This was the only day we saw sunshine; even the tourist websites say the weather in Guizhou is ‘miserable’. They’re not wrong there.

The street food is better than in any of the crappy establishments that call themselves high-end restaurants

Apples and coal

Coal monger. It was he who insisted on me taking his photograph. I’m normally reluctant to do the close-ups as I think it’s a bit rude

Just looking at chillies makes me happy

Meat monger.
I won’t lie to you, it’s not exactly balmy. But with some wool and thermal and always comparing myself with Scott, Amundsen and Nansen, it’s a piece of cake.
