in China #9 - The Road from Shijiazhuang to Tianjin
Some might be interested in the scenery of the road between Shijiazhuang and Tianjin, and as compared to the difference between this and the road from Shijiazhuang to Cangyanshan.
It's not like this series of shots is action packed, and lots of it is just flat countryside...but this is obviously prime agricultural land. especially as compared to the much more hilly Cangyanshan area, and it was very surprising to me how green the land along this road was.
I've included a couple of shots form a promotional pop concert in Shijiazhuang that was happening in the downtown market area just before my friend MaRong and his wife took me to the bus station...and then, at the end, I've included a few shots I took of Shijiazhuang in the late afternoon that I first arrived.
The trip distance is 360 kilometers, and took roughly 4 hours.
