Electric is how I would describe this night with the Chinese people. I wanted to travel to a city in China, outside of Beijing. Get to know the country more and it’s people. I decided to go to the amazing and sprawling city of Guangzhou. This city created an epic, historic, frenzied & beautiful night that I’ll never forget. Grateful to have this connection with the people ~ it’ll always be the best part of my job. #hobbsandshaw #guangzhou ðŸ‡¨ðŸ‡³
