I lived in Zhengzhou for my first 10 years here, and during that time I remember only one flood, when to catch a bus home I had to wade through water up to my ankles.  Where I am in Chongqing there is no danger of flooding, but boy is it ever hot.

A great photo essay. I love the train, I would love to take a ride on it. 

The horse is stunning. Here is some information on the ancient breed. 

The   Akhal-Teke   ( / ˌ æ k əl ˈ t ɛ k /   or   / ˌ æ k əl ˈ t ɛ k i / ; from   Turkmen   Ahalteke ,   [axalˈteke] ) is a Turkmen   horse breed . [1]   They have a reputation for speed and endurance, intelligence, and a distinctive metallic sheen. The shiny coat of the breed led to their nickname, "Golden Horses". [2]   These horses are adapted to severe climatic conditions and are thought to be one of the oldest existing   horse breeds . [3]   There are currently about 6,600 Akhal-Tekes in the world, mostly in   Turkmenistan , although they are also found throughout   Europe   and   North America . [4]   Akhal is the name of the line of oases along the north slope of the   Kopet Dag   mountains in Turkmenistan. It has been inhabited by the Tekke tribe of Turkmens.

There are several theories regarding the original ancestry of the Akhal-Teke, some dating back thousands of years. It is probable that Akhal Teke is a descendant of an older breed known as the   Turkoman horse , and some claim it is the same breed. The tribes of Turkmenistan   selectively bred   the horses, recording their   pedigrees   orally and using them for raiding. The breed was used in the losing fight against the   Russian Empire , and was subsumed into the Empire along with its country. The Turkoman has influenced many other breeds, including modern   warmbloods , and recent research confirms that Turkoman stallions made significant contributions to the development of the   Thoroughbred . [5]   However, there also exists the possibility that all Akhal-Tekes today have a Thoroughbred sire line. [6]   The   stud book   was   closed   in 1932. [7]   The Soviet Union printed the first breed registry in 1941, including over 700 horses.

Nice set of photos. 

I think pictures like this make China seem more familiar to people in the US.

For years I've been posting photo essays about China on the Discovery Group - and there are tons of them, especially in the archives that can be reached by clicking on the almost invisible words in dark blue just to the right of the words "Discussion Forum" at the top of the comment wall.  I also post pretty well every week essays of photos that I have taken here over the years on the Creative Arts group.
