2011 April 5 Walking Street Cobblestone Old Market Area 058, originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
Julianne and I went to check out an old cobblestone market area that is just a few blocks from ‘Walking Street’ in downtown Changsha.
It had some neat stuff but frankly we’ve seen much nicer old market areas while we were in Korea (especially Insa-dong). I know Changsha is just one small region of China and I’m sure there must be magnificent old markets in Beijing and Shanghai and several other places . . . but for our first venture out into an old market in China it was a little disappointing.
That being said I love this black dragon-lion statue that I saw while walking around this area.
