about the pebble foot massage thing, traditional Chinese medicine has a theory that stimulating the acupuncture points on your feet could improve the health condition of your other body parts. well there is no easier way of doing that than simply walking barefoot on a pebble-paved path.
That I understand. But why walk backwards?

That photo was taken with tele lens anyway. The problem is that people are able to realize that it's a tele lens and if someone is persistently trying to take a picture of someone with such lens it makes him look like a pervert. So I tried not to stay in one place for too long and not to attract too much attention. I really wouldn't want to scare that girl.

without background, showing multiple lady feet pics in a row might get urself mistaken for a foot fetishist not that it is something wrong, but at least now we know you are just interested in self foot massage.

according to some mysterious theory it's more relaxing. I always think of it as an old man's exercise 'cause I've only seen elderly people backward walking in parks, not such young pretty girls.

Backwards walking on stones is good for health. No face? At least you can photogragh one.

Many ladies in my office building walk backwards after lunch which always puzzles me...

You have a lot of faith my friend.

Most of the split bins in China I've come across contain 'identical' rubbish in either portion, and when you consult a cleaning lady she'd just stare at you thinking you are weird and say 'Ooooh recycling - don't mind that sign', and walk off laughing her head off.

Of course, because it's a new thing unheard of before. It will take time. A few years perhaps. However, the fact that there is such an initiative is very encouraging and it will surely start working. It does in many countries where such initiative was shown (e.g. Germany). What surprises me though is that some cities/countries don't even try to do that or encourage people to separate waste (e.g. UK).

Continuing in Zhujiang New Town. The area is still very much a construction site although most of the infrastructure including streets, parks and public spaces are already open

114. Just outside the Zhujiang New Town metro station


115.


116. There are not too many cars in some streets. Poeple are crossing street anywhere they find convenient. At first I was too reluctant to do that but eventually started doing the same and crossing the street wherever I felt like looking for some angles to take a picture


117.



118. Wide pedestrian spaces, trees and general feeling of order

bad habits are contagious. However in China pedestrians randomly crossing the streets are not the biggest threat to drivers. those speedy silent electric bikes are really dangerous. Guangzhou banned all electric bikes a couple of years ago. and Shenzhen is to ban such bikes in a few days.

I saw quite a few of those bikes in Shenzhen. Maybe it's a good idea which will, hopefully, push people to move to ordinary bicycles and so improve their physical condition.

I wouldn't blame the pedestrians for that - there ought to be a signal controlled crossing at or near this road junction, but it seems there isn't one in sight.

I saw a pedestrian bridge nearby but it's still not finished. I saw similar sights in many locations though. People just seem to cross the street where they fell like. A bad habit that has to be dealt with.
