This recording was made during a brief visit to Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, China. I stumbled upon a small market with some caged birds just off one of the main central shopping areas. However this is not the large flower and bird market recommended in the travel guides.

Kunming is a fine example of the modernization and development happening in many Chinese cities. You can still find occasional remenants of the old city jostling against the shiny high rises and contemporary city landscaping.
