The Old Ways (in Zhengzhou)

Zhengzhou has an old city wall--not as impressive as the one at Xi'an. Compressed earth and loess.

The wall surrounds ruins dating from the Shang Dynasty, which all appear to have been removed to make way for a park and apartment complex.

And they still have cock fights.

Why gamble on stocks when you can gamble on roosters?
