1st Expedition to Tianjin

03 Sep

The great metropolis of Tianjin. I finally ventured into the city on Saturday, armed with my camera and a shaky knowledge of where there could potentially be some sights. Here’s what I found.

Italian-Style Town: basically one big bar, by the looks of it. I’m sure the beer prices are ridiculous, but it might warrant a nighttime visit later.

This about sums up America.

This was the last time they hired kindergarten students to paint the murals.

ITALIAN town. Someone didn’t get the memo.

滨江道 Bin Jiang Road: the longest shopping street in Asia! Oh boy! All done in a vaguely Euro style, I guess to match the charm and splendor of Italian Towne.

General downtown wanderings: a completely empty European-style village, crazy clocks, and more!

And finally, the Xinkai cathedral.

Take a look at this informative sign just inside the cathedral. I think the “No Love” portion is rather un-Christian of them.

    The mural made me lol. The lady is ridiculous: she must be an h-cup, her cheeks are silly, and the sails look like poop. Also, empty downtown area is kinda creepy. Good thing you didn’t run into any Chinese zombies.

      There actually were Chinese zombies, but I stuck paper on their foreheads and they stopped chasing me. Also, I think the mural lady is the quintessential Italian beauty. We should strive to be like her.
