Snapshot Yangzhou: Yangzhou Times Square

All sides of China, its street vendors and rickshaws and nouveau mall and stores all side by side; we once happened upon a Saturday break-dancing festival right in the open area there, with full stages and the only heavily-tattooed Chinese boys I saw anywhere in the country. Some of them were very good, and they performed in troupes, with choreographed acts. Stores inside were nearly all Chinese brands. It was the "big city" element of the inner city, without trying to be too terribly western. 2007
