Chinese girls are very fashion conscious. When we visited the stone forest almost all the girls were dressed as if they were going for tea at Buckingham Palace, including wide brimmed hats and the ubiquitous stratospherically high heels. The aim is to pose for photographs in front of whatever attraction it is that they are visiting, so they want to look their best. The attractions oblige, as previously mentioned, by having concrete walkways everywhere so that you can totter about to your heart’s content.

Tops sporting words in English are very popular, being exotically foreign I suppose, even though the wearer might not know what the words mean. I don’t think the girl wearing a white T-shirt with “Acne” written in large letters across the front can have understood what that means! Some Western clothing manufacturer’s little joke? Or maybe a Chinese clothing manufacturer’s ignorance/mistranslation.
