This is the third and final post of the three post series about my trip to Beijing 2018.

Part 1: Beijing and My Return to The Hutongs

Español

En medio de visitas a templos y paseos por los hutongs y el antiguo Beijing está la ciudad actual, el Beijing moderno, la gran arquitectura, los rascacielos, todo el sistema de autopistas, la alta tecnología y la moda, lo que verdaderamente la hace una capital de nivel mundial, es lo que más disfruto y donde paso la mayor parte del tiempo.

Por estos días se celebra el Foro de Cooperación África China, así que hay muchos hermanos y hermanas africanas en las calles, me encanta el saludo que hacemos cuando nos cruzamos, extraños que se reconocen en una tierra lejana.

Creo que lo que me gusta más de Beijing, y de China en general, es la experiencia de estar aislado de todo, por la distancia, por la cultura, por el idioma, y tener esos pequeños momento de conexión me hace darme cuenta de que somos un mismo mundo, algo que se nos escapa de vista tan fácilmente en estos tiempos, es triste me hizo falta viajar tan lejos para encontrarme con la humanidad.

Muchos de los fotógrafos que más admiro son fotógrafos de calle y es uno de los estilos que más sigo, y he tomado algunas de sus técnicas para aplicarlas a la fotografía que me gusta hacer, sin embargo nunca he logrado tener esa cercanía con el sujeto de la calle, algunos intentos hice.

Y caminando la ciudad, en medio de la gente es donde me encuentro más calmado, donde me pierdo en la multitud, en medio de los modernos edificios, las luces, las pantallas, y acá es cuando empiezo a trazar las líneas de lo que serán mis próximas aventuras, me gustarian que continuarán en China, ahora vuelvo ¿a casa?, con objetivos que apenas unas semanas atrás no tenía, vuelvo feliz, extrañando ya a mi hermana, y con la ilusión de volver pronto.

English

Amidst visits to temples and walks through the hutongs and the ancient Beijing is the current city, the modern Beijing, the great architecture, the skyscrapers, the entire highway system, high technology and fashion, what truly makes it a world-class city, it is what I enjoy the most and where I spend most of my time.

These days the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation is being held, so there are many African brothers and sisters in the streets, I love the nod we make when we meet, strangers who acknowledge themselves in a distant land.

I think that what I like most about Beijing, and China in general, is the experience of being isolated from everything, by distance, by culture, by language, and having those little moments of connection makes me realize that we are the same world, something that escapes us so easily in these times, It’s sad I had to travel so far to find the humanity.

Many of the photographers that I admire most are street photographers, it’s one of the styles that I follow the most, and I have taken some of their techniques to apply them to the photography that I like to do, however I have never managed to have that closeness with the subject of the street, some attempts I made.

And walking the city, in the middle of the people is where I find myself calmer, where I get lost in the crowd, in the middle of the modern buildings, the lights, the screens, and here is when I start to draw the lines of what will be my next adventures, I would like them to continue in China, now I return home, with goals that just a few weeks ago I did not have, I’m happy again, already missing my sister, and with the hope of returning soon.
