Last night, after pointing out some of the excellent contributions from my co-guest bloggers, Jim noted that my photo of a market in Yulin helps highlight a very important side of China that can be lost amongst all the news of its growth and achievements. I completely agree.
While I plan to later post scenes from other regions, such as I did with Xiapu, I'd like to first provide more local context for the photo which I, too, really love by sharing a few more from Yulin.
Note: all pictures are from the central area of Yulin. The suburban districts are another story.
