An African Neighbourhood in South China


There are thought to be 20,000 Africans in Guangzhou, a South China city with a population of approximately 14 million.

After many months of being ‘the only one of my kind,’ (wasn’t there a film with this line in it?), I was delighted to hop on and off a train and walk straight into a world (well, neighbourhood, forgive the artistic license) full of people who looked just like me.

It was refreshing, bewildering and exciting all at the same time.
