American Dreams

Another day off work, another bike ride. Frances bought a bike a few days ago so I rode with her to her teaching job. I decided to keep heading west towards Anting, which is the center of the Chinese auto industry. On my way there I stumbled on something kind of strange. On the side of the road there was an abandoned theme park named American Dream Park. It was boarded up and it seemed that there were people living in the ticket office. I looked it up later and apparently it opened in 1997 but quickly folded. It seemed to be a strange place to put a theme park, being surrounded by factories and junkyards. I finally made it to Anting with just enough time to explore the Auto City, which is either half built or half abandoned.
