Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – Up or Down


My aunt shared this photograph over social network a few days ago. When I first saw it, I was like, “Holy cow?” My aunt took this picture on the top floor of a hotel in my hometown in China. She was probably there for lunch or to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. My hometown changed so much. The only way I can tell it’s my hometown is the giant Ferris wheel and I only know it through my mom. She told me my grandpa (her dad) lives a block from the Ferris wheel. Otherwise, I might have mistaken this for London or somewhere in Europe.

I have no idea where this is with respect to what it was 15 years ago. I looked on Google maps and couldn’t figure it out although I did find a Walmart and the name of this river, ShiQi River. Unbelievable and since then is there a river named after my hometown? Compared to the last time I looked at it which would be maybe 10 years ago, the city has grown dramatically.

I wonder when those bridges were built because I certainly don’t remember crossing over any bridges when I was little. When I saw this photograph, it made me realize, I will be like a tourist when I go back next year. I will be gawking and admiring at everything. I will be needing a map just to get around my hometown. Hopefully I can access Google there.

So to conclude the post, up or down the river? Or rather north or south? It looks like that boat is getting to dock.
