Photos: Weekend in Chongqing

Spending the weekend in Chongqing has become an annual summer tradition. This last weekend I played at the new Nuts Club in Chongqing along with Jovian. A handful of photos from my trip are below, the rest are on a page dedicated to the photos, which you can access by hitting the button at the bottom of these photos.

Photos from Strawberry Music Festival

Strawberry Music festival was last weekend in Chengdu, attracting thousands to Poly 198 park in the North of the city. I played on both days, the first day on the Chengdu Music stage and the second on the Electronic Stage. Both days of the festival were fun, but the second was even better than the first due to a much larger crowd.

One Night in Qatar

On my recent flight from Washington DC to Chengdu, I had an 8-hour layover in Doha, Qatar. I had never been in Qatar before but knew it to be a newly-rich Arab nation attempting to challenge Dubai’s ostentatious reputation with their own over-the-top luxuries. Although I was only in the city for an evening, it was eye opening and not like anywhere else I’d ever been.

For starters, it seemed that most people I encountered fell into two categories: fantastically wealthy and clutching a gold iPhone in pristine white robes, or a poor immigrant.

I passed the time by exploring the sprawling Souq Waqif market, drinking mint tea, and smoking peach shisha in the hot evening air. Here are a few photos from Souq Waqif:

Visiting Beijing’s 798 Art Zone

I recently visited Beijing and spent an afternoon in the historic 798 Art Zone, which is set amidst 50-year old decommissioned military factory buildings on the outskirts of the city. Now it’s a collection of art galleries, studios, and exhibits by local artists. Local specialties are painting, graffiti, and sculpture, and the star of the Art Zone is Ai Weiwei, China’s most respected, and notoriously anti-authoritarian, rebel artist.

Here are a few photos: Beijing 798 Art Zone 2014

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Graffiti

MH370 Graffiti

Created by good friend and legendary Chengdu graffiti artist Gas along with Seve. This piece is in the downtown district of Chengdu and depicts Malaysian Airlines flight 370 disappearing en route to China.

I’ve been reading news about the vanished flight daily and have learned an incredible amount about aviation. The fact that something this large can just disappear is amazing, and in fact, this event is completely unprecedented. The disappearance has a lot to do with aviation being stuck in the 1960’s.

I presume this event has a good chance at changing that and taking additional steps to improve standards, safety, and awareness of how important having modern electronic systems inside airplanes are.

A Rose in Bloom

Rose

There’s a florist directly underneath my apartment. I pass it everyday, but never bought anything from there until a few weeks ago – this single rose.
