Dreams of White Tiles . . .



Filed under: Uncategorized — Roddy @ 5:19 pm

Gulou Dong Dajie is being simultaneously disemboweled and skinned alive, and this has kindled a refurbishment fever in the shops alongside. It’s a bit of a nightmare to navigate between piles of sand, stacked paving blocks and workers having a well-deserved smoke. If you turn up around 4 or 5 pm though, as the sun comes over the top of Gulou at the end of the street and squints through the dust, you do get very nicely-lit chaos.

They appear to have decided that this street will remain tree-lined, which is nice. Unfortunately they seem to have cut down some trees which weren’t close enough to the said line, but never mind.

Currently listening, repeatedly, to Albion.
