A Visit to a Chinese Medicine Shop

chinese medicine shop

Although Chinese medicine shops can be found all over Hong Kong, the district of Sheung Wan is an epicenter for all things herbed, dried, crushed, ground, and mixed together. While all of this may be considered "alternative" to us, it's very commonplace and co-exists with modern medicine. The language barrier prevented us from learning too much about the ancient practice while there, but the store workers seemed more interested in encouraging us to photograph them anyway. - Alex
