One of those Expos where the local government is having an expo and they want foreigners to join. In return they pay all our transport, food, hotel etc for us to show up. There is a lot of media and pictures are taken, it looks GOOD if there are a lot of people attending from around the world. I been to 3 of these expos before and must say this was the worse place in China I have visited so far. Anping is like...well there is nothing here. Just low and worn out buildings, dust, nothing to see...Who would ever want to live in a place like this???
Beijing - Anping by bus about 3 hours
View from the hotel...wow, great.
Room was better on the inside than outside
When I came into the cantina and got this plate the first thing I thought of was....prison
Buffe was still ok
The VIP going to explore more about wire mesh products
Loads of people came to my surprise
TV was also there
To be honest, this map was pretty much the coolest thing I saw on this expo
Wire mesh "museum"
When walking here there were 40 people or more attacking me, giving me name-cards and brochures and asking for my card. Some of them just came, gave their card and left without saying a word. Great way of doing business!!
Barb wire and other wire products
For some reason every building in Anping was covered with massive signs full of texts, EVERYWHERE
dirty dirty dirty ceiling
Stopped by for buying water and snacks, they really don't have much to choose from
This truck was PACKED! Wonder how the boxes don't fall
specially this one to the right, packing done RIGHT
