Life in China: A day at the local market

A staple of Life in China is the Local Market. Of course you find supermarkets and department stores in the cities, even Walmarts, but not far from them, you will always find the local market or shopping alleys, which is not necessarily just for shopping, folks come to socialize, these are essential meeting places for the local communities.

Here's a picture tour of the local market and shopping streets, just around the corner from our hotel in Jiu Jiang.
