One year ago (after having lived in China for almost 20 years!), the mere existence of a place called Wuhan was still totally unknown to me! Well, come to see it when you can, it is a gorgeous destination for tourism, I need to say…
We visited it for two or three days, and it has quite amazing attractions, like the wonderful pagoda from which I took the above photography, or the luxuriantly forested recreational outdoors by the lake.
It not only existed, but we were informed that Wuhan is actually the result of a combination of three cities spanning at both sides of the Yangtze river, counting together a population of about 11 million.
It is, indeed, a monster of a city, absolutely huge and busy.
One year ago we made a similar trip, that time to the Jiangsu province, and I already poured quite a scorn on the urbanization plans we saw in Nanjing.
But the rage of that model among Chinese planners is unstoppable, it goes everywhere, and these images I took on the 12th of November in Wuhan are only one example. No, no, no…, not for me…:
