Life in this Big City

One of the biggest adjustments to life in Shenyang is that it is a BIG city.  I’ve said it before.  I’m sure I’ll say it all again.  Population of approximately 7.5 million people.  400 new car licenses every day.  Noisy, busy, a little crazy – every day.  It is hard to believe what we’ve seen over the last three years, and who knows what we’ll see in the years to come?!

Over the last few months, there are city shots I haven’t shared on the blog.  These are images that will stay in our minds for a long time, simply because we see them every day under various skies and in many moods.  Images of a city we couldn’t imagine before we arrived, and now, it will always be a part of us.

Enjoy a little Shenyang in its big city, crazy glory.

I started this blog in 2010 as we prepared to move to Shenyang China. Since coming back to the US in 2015, my writing has been less consistent. Trying to find a voice here...

  1. Love these images…may steal some of them as they are also a part of us! Thanks for taking the time to capture these images!

  2. Thanks for sharing Julie! I will have to do a similar exercise! The things we see every day do not seem strange anymore! Good to capture the everyday images! Thanks for the idea!

  3. Love getting updates on your ‘simple adventure’ – other than the traffice, I hope you continue to enjoy!
    Thanks Julie.
