    Traveling While Black

    Changzhou is a small town which is about an hour by fast train from Shanghai. Changzhou is quite small and overall there isn’t much to offer in the city. However, as I have quite a few friends in this city I end up being here quite often and I have found a few quaint places to pass the time.

    Hongmei Park is a huge park located in the centre of Changzhou. The park has a lot of beautiful flowers and grass space and this is a great space to spend a quiet afternoon. There is also a lovely canal which cuts through the park and there are some water activities.

    China Dinosaurs Park is a small to medium sized theme park. The park has skeletons of quite few well known dinosaur species and the fossil collection is relatively interesting. The park isn’t that large so I would advise spending about 1.5h in this park.

    Tianning Temple is a giant wooden pagoda which was constructed in 2002 and was officially opened in 2007. The temple is really beautiful and you are allowed access to the temple. however, there is a cost.

    Life as a resident in Shanghai is a bit different in comparison to life as a tourist however, travelling through China while black may not be the most exciting experience. Most people in China have never seen a person of color before and end up being quite curious. Unfortunately, they don’t always act upon this curiosity in the best way possible. To date I have had people stick cameras in my face and try to touch my hair and skin because they are quite perplexed as to how someone which such dark skin could have straight black ‘asian’ hair. This may be entertaining or scary at first , but it is important to remember that due to the mono culture in China they are merely amazed to see something different.

    Another culture shock in China is the hygiene (or lack thereof). Chinese believe if there is something in you that needs to come out you should release yourself and be free of this band thing regardless of where you are. This pertains to everything from spitting, farting to burping. That being said, you shouldn’t be shocked to have people spit in the street whilst you’re walking, or even have a taxi driver roll down his window and spit out. If you are quite sensitive to foreign smells I would advise getting a mask, despite the evident pollution problem, the smells in China can be quite overwhelming and having a mask really helps.

    Patience and general etiquette are two things which are quite scarce in China. You will be pushed out of the way the moment the metro doors open, or even when standing in line at a supermarket. You could try shouting back , however, I doubt this would help as most people don’t understand English.

    Traffic in China is an absolute nightmare . One thing to bear in mind when crossing the road is that the ebikes or motorbikes don’t usually stop at the traffic light and may get run over. A friend of mine actually had a collision with a motorbike whilst he was on a bicycle.

    Life in China can be overwhelming but also quite amazing at the same time.
