Photographs taken on a two week trip to Zhuhai China August 2008. I flew SFO to Hong Kong and took the Zhuhai ferry from Hong Kong. I visited Macau over the intervening weekend. Typhoon Nuri closed Hong Kong down on the day I was to return.

Dust is as prevalent as the little garage shops shown here.  I've seen huge truck tires in one shop; plumbing supplies in a 2nd.
