Each Chinese Australian Hometown Heritage Tour Kate and I take the opportunity to add new sites and villages and also enhance the information we provide to guests. This year we offered a walking tour of the old town of Shekki. We spent some time doing the walk and thinking about how we might improve it.
Tea in China is pricey and the shops filled with beautifully packaged tea.
Such delicate toffee. These weren’t here in 2017 when we came through but were this year. How to capture the ephemeral in a planned walking tour? Sometimes you can’t!
Toilet stops are an essential on any walking tour. In China, you test them out first though!
Offerings for the Chinese temple across the road. You also walk a gauntlet of pretty aggressive beggars.

Difficult to see in this photograph but this is an enormous starfruit tree in front of a magnificent 1930s era mansion.
