In the heart of Fuzhou is Wuyi Square. This large square is a popular spot with the local population. On one side of the square is a statue of Chairman Mao. Opposite the statue is the lovely Performing Arts Theatre. Many modern building surround this area of Fuzhou.
I am always intrigued by the variety of sights you can see on the streets in these small towns and villages. I love the sense of community that you feel when you wander along and see the various shops that are ever present. Here are a few photos of life in this small town.
The Pharmacies in this part of China have an intiguing blend of both modern and traditional medicines. Here are some photos of the inside of the pharmacy where the promotion was held. I have also included some photos of more traditional prescriptions being prepared.
On the weekend of June 4-6th, I was once again invited to accompany my friend Brian on a promotion for his business. We drove up to northern Fujian Province. The promotion took place in a small town just a short drive outside of Fuding. I brought my bagpipes along. Here are some photos of this very successful event.
