Life in Shenzhen- Photo Story

Chinese socialism

Chinese socialism looks more like western capitalism.

Shenzhen, China is home to almost 12 million people. Because of the large influx of workers from the countryside, some of whom do not have papers to work in the city, that number may be grossly underestimated. The city began as a little fishing village and has only grown so large in the last 20 years or so. Most of the residents come from somewhere else.

Exploring Shenzhen and living here, there is a great mixture of lifestyles, history and cultures.
