Whilst in China, I went shopping along one of Guangzhou's most popular pedestrian shopping districts, Beijing Road. This road contains a load of history, most of which has been covered up by the sales, the landscaping, shops and infinite number of people. But I noticed something that reminded me of a post I did a while back about a preserved monk's cell.
At several spots along this rather long street, there are these 'windows' into the road's past condition. It shows the distinctive tiles and various bits and pieces like parts of foundations and people's doorstep. The fantastic thing about this is modern life rushes past all of this, comparing that which has time dramatically slowed down with the constant stream of present day society, which continually speeds up.
