    Nanjing Street Life

    December 3, 2017 in China ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    1. Why not take a nap at the construction site?
    2. Why not work in the middle of a four way road?
    3. And you thought Munich streets are flooded with shared bikes?
    4. United we pull!
    5. And the last picture ... no words.Read more

    Different day, differnt food

    December 7, 2017 in China ⋅ 🌫 8 °C

    There are great places for good food everywhere. In Nanjing, going out too eat costs about the same than just cooking at home (even though I becomes more and more expensive while salaries stay about the same). That’s why there are small restaurants in every corner. And like always, one has to take some dark side alleyways to find the best places. I always liked Chinese food back in Munich, but after I return I will have a hard time to find stuff as good as here ... take a Look!Read more

    Must try: chicken feet (or 凤爪)

    December 8, 2017 in China ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    “After an outer layer of thin skin is removed, most of the edible tissue on the feet consists of skin and tendons, with no muscle. This gives the feet a distinct texture different from the rest of the chicken's meat.” (Wikipedia)Read more

    The Nanjing City Wall (南京城墙)

    December 10, 2017 in China ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    It was very impressive to walk the stairs up the wall and to get a feeling for its unbelievable dimensions. When it was build in the 14th century by emperor Zhu Yuanzhan, who made Nanjing the capital of China, it was the longest wall in China and belonged to the largest in the world. It was/is 48km long and took 21 to be built! Now, more than 600 years later, it is still in great shape.Read more

  • Day21

    Taking a nap

    December 21, 2017 in China ⋅ 🌙 3 °C

    I saw it a couple of times, but always after lunch time. People just take little naps, whenever they are right now. I think that’s great. We should start doin that again. Everything is always moving so fast and it gets harder to find time for small breaks in the daily work life.Read more

    Presents for everyone

    December 5, 2017 in China ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Somebody gave birth to a girl, and here it is a tradition to give a little present to everyone. Pretty cute! But know matter who in the office I asked, nobody actually knew the woman ;)

  • Day6

    Nanjing is alive and soaring

    December 6, 2017 in China ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    I was amazed to see all the modern shops and buildings. There is light everywhere and music always around you.
