I wanted to go to Guangzhou today, just to get out of Jade Green Island. But when I went to buy my bus ticket the woman said “Mai you” (No way). Then she showed me a sign written in Chinese that said “Oct. 1st and 2nd something, something, something.” I guess the bus I take is on holiday. I was puzzled and still am a bit because there were buses in their lanes and lots of people getting on and off.

I spent yesterday here and Jade Green Island can make me feel stir crazy. So I hopped on the bus for downtrodden Xintang, which I’ve just learned makes 60% of the world’s blue jeans.

Doesn't he look the part?

Sunday is a bit special in Xintang. Lots of vendors sell cheap goods up and down the sidewalk. It’s sort of a flea market in front of all the legit shops. Also, I saw several older men with traditional beards who seem to be hawking fortunes and physiognomy readings.

Wonder what he's telling her

Stumbled Upon this Market

When we first got here we asked where the market was and no one had a good answer. Often we were told to go to Vanguard, a hypermarket kind of place. Actually. I discovered this market this morning, not far from Vanguard in fact.
