Since the reason I headed to Shenzhen is to pick up by cousin flying in from Europe, of course I brought along my grandpa’s driver, or else I’ll be completely lost! I cannot miss opportunities to take some pictures of Shenzhen and feel impressed by how thriving and booming the city has become. The indicator I used to measure is by the amount of high rises springing up all over town, and of course, because Shenzhen is building MTR to connect its airport located in a rural part of town to city center.
As much of the time is spent sitting inside the car, I think it’s good to title this piece “Shenzhen through a car’s window”.

I sneaked in some pictures of the supermarket section of Carefour in Shenzhen China with my phone; of course it’s an eye-opener with its selections and some of the products for sale really scared me.

I still get the goosebumps when I look at this picture, because this is a preserved headless rabbit
