yes george, in your day they did build houses around a power pole to save stringing new wire into the house. This way they can just tap into the line whenever they need to. bjbjbjbjbj

Hahaha!!  Is this one an oldie?  One that I might remember, although I never saw it as a 'work in progress'?

Yes to everything. A new restaurant rising in the village of Shi Pai(Guangdong, Zhaoqing). Near to the one you remember so well.
It was roofed over and as far as I know the pole is still there.

I came across it when transferring photos from my old computer.

These two were on opposite sides of me, basically 100 yards apart. A before and after kind of thing (or is it yesterday and tomorrow)

Cool.  bfbfbfbfbf Wondered what it was. It is ideally placed to be used as a footrest for a passenger sitting on the petrol tank!   agagagagag

Good shot! Very symbolic with its juxtaposing of ... damn, I have run out of my 'arty' words.

Great how you faded it away into the distance ... oh, I see, the air in China does that for you. bibibibibi

Technology in China - Test for Advanced Students


Question 3.

Although it was categorised as a 'toy' the name on one of the objects in the photo is very familiar to those males, of British descent, who had an interest in the 'nuts and bolts' of life in their boyhood.

* I apologise for the quality of the photo. I was focussing on something else  ababababab and only noticed the target later on. You are going to have to zoom in. Maybe, to save you going blind, I will blow it up (the photo that is  xxxxxxxxxx) and post tomorrow.

** This object may be a mystery for those from the USA. Instead, you can use the time to gaze in awe at the product with the Stars and Stripes.

*** others are just welcome to browse  ahahahahah




DISCLAIMER: I am not! I came out of the toilet next to this shop and the middle-aged lady who owns the shop was standing outside. We started chatting and she invited me in for a cup of tea.
If I am in the city I call in to see her ... and have a cup of tea while we discuss the various merits of her products.
 :wtf: I now know which products are most popular with female clients ... but my lips are sealed.   uuuuuuuuuu
