The Changing Face of China

Nanjing is a fun and vibrant place to be.  While it is China in all its glory, the artefacts of western culture and globalisation are every where to be seen on the main streets. Jeans, t-shirts and designer labels seek to at least visually blur cultural identities, but  a unique Chinese style shines through. Young ladies seem effortlessly elegant, yet strangely school girl like, in a mish-mash of Chinese designs, Birkenstocks and other western finery. McDonalds and KFC outlets continue their relentless spread. At last count there were over 4000 KFC outlets in China, with a new one opening every week. Money and optimism seem to be everywhere. China is changing, and changing rapidly.
