A Final Wander in Shenzhen

Heading out for another early morning walk in Shenzhen, I spot portable bun stands on corners all around the city and the delivery vehicle bringing the buns to stock the stands.

I wander over to the Shenzhen City Hall plaza to see what's new and find that the floral displays I enjoyed in my previous trip have been replaced by sculpture and a new coffee/tea shop - something is always changing!

Keeping my eye open for more two- and three-wheeled vehicles, I spot a delivery truck and police transportation.  I  imagine the bicycle is a lot faster in the [very heavy and slow] rush hour traffic!

Walking back from the City Hall to my hotel in the Futian District, along Binhe Avenue, I see great murals on the walls along the street, similar to the murals that the artists from the M50 art district were creating on the walls in Shanghai.

And, as I approach the hotel, a water truck is washing the sidewalk.

I have enjoyed my wanders in Shenzhen, marveling how this city sprung up from its origins as a sleepy fishing village to become the modern technology center that it now is.
