We live in ShenZhen, a newly built city- it used to be a small little town with only about 30,000 people. In the span of 30 years, there are now over 18 million people that live here! You can only imagine what that means… constant construction for 30 years, and a melting pot of immigrants. It’s really amazing.
This is my favorite spot in the city. It’s surrounded by cars and buses and scooters all around, but somehow it feels quiet and peaceful. Whenever we come here, it gives me fresh perspective on life. A city built by man, full of malls and shops and food and toys… yet underneath it all, there is still a natural force growing and spreading. Like prayers, they decorate their surroundings, strengthening and joining in with the work already in place. Beautiful.
