Many Africans have come to Baohanzhi Street to seek their fortunes but are now leading marginalized lives and their futures are unpredictable.

Great photo essay. One word to them migrants, just go home - Asia is no place for a non-Asian.

So could all the Chinese scurry back to their motherland as they obviously don't fit in to their new homes abroad, just like the Africans in Guangzhou.

I do enjoy Guangzhou's tranquility. It's much safer than back home. Many of us made our dreams here in China and some did not. Definitely, some of us are having difficulty adapting the new culture and I am pretty sure the Chinese in Africa are facing the same culture dilemma as we do here. I know some Chinese made pretty good and some had lost everything in Africa too. Having a business is risky, no matter where you go. In my opinion, I do believe Africa dreams is in China.
