Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, September 3 – It amazes me how quickly things can change in China! I can go to my “home” in the USA, and even if I’ve been gone a year, hardly anything is different. Not so here! We were in the Philippines for 2 ½ weeks and there is now a new store! This is right by the entrance of the local supermarket, so I’m there at least twice a week, and I saw no signs of something new being built before I left! So it was quite a surprise to see it on our first day back! It’s a nice little Japanese brand shop with some nice things :-) I took the bottom 2 pictures as I was coming down the escalator from the supermarket, so you can see it would be hard to miss, the area used to just be open! The new store has glass walls on three sides, with everything around it still the same, bicycle rentals behind it and a drink and snack place to the side. I guess this was just a simple little store, but skyscrapers also go up in an amazing amount of time!
