This year Tianjin saw some heavy snow fall. Its very cold outside and we need to negotiate another 20-22 days more this month before we fly back to where we belong, to enjoy some warmth.Looking forward to, very impatiently,having some nice time back in India for a very short vacation.

Time for some snow pictures:

Nice set of pictures here. Those pandas look pretty. The impetus given to infrastructure development by them should make our govt/politicians feel ashamed.

So, curious to know how you have landed in China for your professional life. I guess that is one part of the world where you will find less number of Indians compared to other countries :P.

@null

Thanks brother for those nice words. Yes you are right and we[me and wify] haven't met many Indian working here in China.Barring a few like us almost every foreigner working here are from west.

Today at 2.30 pm we got a call from a friend of ours who said the river bisecting Tianjin city has been completely frozen over that people have started skating there.So we thought of going there to witness such a rare scene first time in our life even though it was around -7°C .

It was amazing to see the frozen river.Some of them have broken the ice to make a little pool and a few were swimming there at -7 °C

A couple of them dug in and were fishing only to be warned by the corps later. Since yesterday it has been very foggy and the air seems to be really bad and polluted.

Let the pictures speak..

Default Tianjin,China- a Photologue

After the harsh winter, at last, its beginning to get warmer these days here in Tianjin.In my other thread I had posted some winter shots already.

What a relief. Had been to the famous Hai river a couple of weeks ago.It flows through the busiest centre of Tianjin city.Its certainly a visual treat at night.

Panshan Scenic area and Pan Mountain:

About 90 km away from Beijing, is situated the Panshan Mountain. The average height of Panshan Mountain is 400 to 600 meters above sea level. Since I was based in Tianjin, had to take a bus to cover the 110km stretch to the spot. Since my visit was right after the winter, it wasn't really scenic to my liking though.

We took this sightseeing car to drive up the hill to the cable car station. Please note that these cars belong to the same Chinese car makers SAIC and Wuling, that developed Wuling Hongguang (Chevrolet Enjoy MPV ).

Thanks a lot for the pics M35. It certainly rekindled fond memories. I was in China in 2008 (beijing and nanning). I was awestruck at their good behaviour and their fantastic infrastructure. We can only dream about the development they have managed to do. I rember that Beijing Olympics was round teh corner and people were crying foul about the foul air. I wish I could bring those people to our cities and ask them about the air quality here

Oh how do i miss the street food (esp the famous peking duck) in wan fu chin street- Beijing. Its like a kaleidoscope out there.

Visited Chongqing Zoo after a two year gap. Mainly concentrated on the Avian House which I missed earlier.

Nǐ hǎo. Least expected a BHPian in China, until I bumped into this thread.

I presume you now live in Tianjin after the stint in Chengdu. I was in Guangzhou until 2010. Thousands of Indians there .

Do you drive in China ? I avoided it, firstly because public transport is so good and secondly my Chinese was never fluent enough to deal with the local cops who were always happy to flag down a foreigner !

Surely your T Log will cover Yunnan, Kunming, etc - magnificent parts of China. Maybe even Tibet, although during those years they frequently closed it off for foreigners. Not sure what the status is now.

Hěn gāoxìng rènshi nǐ (at least virtually) !!

Now i feel like india is the only country which is miles behind underdeveloped.

I have never expected such an infrastructure from china.

To the new prime minister, its time for us to show what we can do. Lets show the world what we can do.

You have some good taste mate. Also, i see Lots of consistency with respect to quality in your photographs.

Nope. Getting a Driving License is nearly an impossible task. But yes, never felt the “need” but always “wanted” to drive one.

Did not visit Yunnan yet but will make it soon, hopefully. Strangely, Tibet doesn’t inspire me at all. May be because, earlier I used to be living in Bhutan for a couple of years.

Did not get you here, mate. You mean, my choice of places or subjects in the photographs ?
