Lost in Time in Xingping, China – Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Remember the gentleman that lost track of time by the side of street in Carmel, California?  Well, I have another version of it, in China.

In the days when I was growing up, we tended to refer to future as the 21th Century, as if it’s somewhere far far away.  With a blink of eyes, we are already more than a decade into the so-referenced Century.  A visit to Xingping (兴坪), an ancient town that’s close to Guilin(桂林), China, makes me realize, maybe, some people have never been “back to the future”.

In this little room, it’d be safe to say that everywhere your eyes land, you’d see an indication of time – three calendars and one clock.  And yet, history seems to refuse to leave.  I mean, if Mao Zedong (毛泽东) is still around, he’d been 121-years old.
