    A Weekend in WuHu (芜湖)


    Not many people outside of China have heard of this city. It is a relatively small city by Chinese standards, it is famous for it's scenery and food. I was there last weekend, visiting friends and doing a bit of sightseeing. I took the chance to experience the Kuai Che (快车) train to there. Here are some photos of the my time there.
    Fiery autumn colours are always a favourite photography subject!
