Africans In China: My Surprise and Delight at Finding an African Town in China\'s Tropics  -  international skin care products brands
Let me draw a picture for you.
When you get off at the little North subway station in Guangzhou, you start to see signs of Africa in China.
Leaving the station, you will head to the famous elephant mall to buy shoes, clothes, hair care, personal items, DVDs, and everything you can think of other than food.
Near the shopping mall, you will meet black ladies in African costumes, who are growing more and more until their number exceeds that of Chinese women.
You also noticed that some Chinese women you see are taking care of the rare hybrid in China.
Outside the elephant mall are shops and restaurants run by Arabs, Turks and Africans selling food and snacks from all over Africa.
The air is filled with the scent of exotic cooking, and the sounds of African languages and dialects bounce from your ears.
In the mall, you will soon realize that almost all customers who buy African goods are Africans except for Chinese and European goods.
In fact, if it weren't for suppliers that are mainly Chinese, you would now believe that you are on the coast of Africa.
So, yes, the tension is sure to happen in this unplanned and unregulated situation, but as I outlined below, thankfully, turbulence is a rare thing.
People in this part of Guangzhou, whether African or Chinese, want to continue their daily life.
In the first few months of China, I lived in a city called Xu Zhou, which is close to the coastline of eastern China and is about 2 hours south of Shanghai.
In its 2,000-year history, it still has many landmarks and a wide variety of cultural heritage that have been preserved from the very beginning.
A modern metropolis with a population of about 10 million and a considerable number of English learners and speakers, I was surprised to find that I could go on for weeks or even longer without seeing another foreigner, until I meet someone with the same skin color as me.
After two months of severe winter, cold and pollution caused me bronchitis and pneumonia, and I moved to the southern coast of China.
Here, palm trees, sandy beaches and shorter, gentler winters guarantee better health, and I was told to expect a larger, more diverse foreign community than Xuzhou.
In addition to enjoying the tropical life, this is my dream all the time, and I am also happy to come to a province where it is easier to get hair, make-up
Up and skin care products for black women.
The supplies I bring from the UK are about to run out, it sounds trivial, and your looks are more important when you are stared almost every day.
I'm sure every woman will agree that in any case you don't feel right if your hair doesn't look right!
In Shenzhen, I finally met other black women who have been guiding me to the same place to find what I needed;
"African town" is located in the regional capital of Guangzhou, neigthbouring, where I am guaranteed to find a hairdresser who can "make my hair" at a reasonable price ".
The locals in China call it "the city of chocolate", but I have never seen the charm of human skin color named after food, and in any case, the geography does not cover the whole Guangzhou at all, just a small part, so I will continue to use this nickname, African or African town.
What do Africans do in China?
Several agreements have been reached with different African countries that help to obtain a degree from a Chinese university.
The average length of these degrees from speaking to African friends of students here is about six years, which gives students the time to be proficient in Chinese, as the course is not taught in English or any native language.
Chinese is complicated enough at the conference level, so I am full of respect for those who study academic Chinese.
Can you do it?
If you put this title on Google, the results of the search engines will convince you that the deal is one-way as China enters Africa, but it is misleading.
Perhaps in the long run, China's massive investment in African countries has made progress and has been going on for a long time, but at the other end of the well-known insistence, african businessmen/women and small businessmen regularly enter and leave China for business activities throughout the year.
Some have established physical stores in food, clothing, individuals, electrical and technical supplies, and cosmetics.
Others export goods produced in Chinese factories and are sold in Africa.
Although foreigners doing business in China have a lot of confusing paperwork, most of them are rarely translated into English, not to mention specific African dialects, as the opportunity to make money for both sides is attractive and seems endless, trade continues to be undaunted.
With the launch of procedures such as scholarships and bursaries, the arrival and care of African students is also increasing.
International trade and business is a popular choice, undertaking a wide range of undergraduate and degree courses.
Some students live on campus and others prefer to live in their own accommodation.
When talking to African student friends in my city, they think culture shock is the hardest thing to get used.
Pastoral care at the University does not seem to take this into account to a large extent.
Most of the students, although not all of them, returned to their African home country during the long holidays, I have yet to meet a student who intends to settle in China after completing the degree.
Although it is not common in China, marriage and relationships between Africans and Chinese do occur because people married to a country will not automatically grant you permanent residency or Chinese citizenship in China, the Union of Chinese and African immigrants is more likely to be for love than for convenience.
From private conversations with the African and Chinese people, Inter Milan's biggest rival seems to be
Racial marriage is some (definitely not all) Chinese men who prefer their own women to marry the same race and may not understand why a Chinese woman falls in love with a black man.
Chinese men and women in mixed marriages, usually with their family members, are open-minded and regard people as non-colored people.
They also have enough willpower to deal with any social negativity that may arise from long-held stereotypes.
Or simply ignorance. Two ex-
The Pat writer who was excellent at covering this topic was Joslyn aikenburg and Joe Gan, who all lived and worked here for years and married Chinese men.

On the streets of China, few Africans are seen hanging out with Chinese.
Each culture tends to blend with its own culture, which is certainly not uncommon.
The same is true in universities, as African students tend to interact with each other more easily than Asian students.
This is because of the identity and experience shared with one's fellow citizens, and may even have some shyness in both aspects.
Having said that, it is exciting to build friendships between races and attractions, some of which even become marriages.
History shows us again and again that whenever a large group of non-locals are planted among a large group of indigenous people who have lived in that place for many years, the result is often trouble.
Sadly, this can be applied to Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong and the most populous city in Africa.
This is the African town I mentioned in my introduction to this article.
Tensions have emerged and erupted for various reasons.
Some Africans believe they are unfairly treated by the police and wrongly accused of committing crimes in their area.
Some Chinese believe that "all black boys" are illegal. they are too many and should be deported.
The situation is complicated, and another article may be needed in order to check it correctly.
I'm not a political expert, so I can't talk to any authoritative person about the relationship between China and African countries.
All I know is that these alliances are growing and seem to be strong.
Chinese troops are in Africa.
Chinese companies are building roads, schools and other types of infrastructure on the continent.
Chinese leaders regularly visit and receive African rulers, and the photos show a smiling and friendly handshake --
Patted everywhere.
Is this obvious unity true or false?
Does the Prime Minister and the president have the same agenda?
Who do these partnerships actually benefit? Who knows?
Not me, of course.
"Over the past few decades, the rapid growth of China's economy and the growing middle class have driven unprecedented demand for resources.
Economic powers have been focused on ensuring the long term
Maintain the long-term energy supply it needs for its rapid industrialisation, and lock in sources of global oil and other raw materials.
As part of this effort, China has turned to Africa.
By investing heavily in a continent known for its political and security risks, China has helped many African countries develop an emerging oil sector in exchange for favorable trade deals.
However, China faces growing international criticism for its controversial business practices and its failure to promote good governance and human rights.
At the same time, the complex relationship between Beijing and the African continent has also challenged its policy of not interfering in African government affairs. From cfr. org.
First African?
Finally, there are some things you need to consider.
More and more schools believe that Africans are the first people on Earth, not limited to the continent, but settled around the world.
I read from various sources that Asians are therefore descendants of Africans.
Every day, I see people on the streets, on public transport, in cafes and restaurants, and their wide noses and African-style hair can prove this theory, the first photo below May
