Photos of the Week - Walmart in Xi'an

I took these photos when the first Wal-Mart opened in Xi'an in 2007. Since that time, a handful more have opened up or will open soon in Xi'an.

While Wal-Marts in China have some of the same characteristics as Wal-Marts in the States, there are, obviously, a fair number of differences too.

I am arriving in Xi'an next week with a group of US teachers sponsored by the China Institute and the National Endowment for the Humanities. We will be staying at Shanxi University for a month studying the history. Anything we can bring you in exchange for an insiders tour?
