We Like Walking In The Alleys Behind Main Streets

While walking down a main shopping thoroughfare here in Guangzhou, Desi spied an alleyway that looked kind of dark, dirty, and narrow. Just our kind of place! When given the option of strolling along a straight, wide dajie or sneaking into a mysterious looking labyrinth, our policy is to always choose the latter.

Our reward? DVDs for as cheap as yi kuai (about 15 cents). Socks for ershijiu kuai (about four dollars...too much).

And all of this took place in the few feet of space that exists between this series of tall buildings. It was at once totally predictable, yet in a different way completely unexpected. A real confirmation of our "alleyways are better" strategy...
