Another fake apple store in China ?

In the month of July, 2011 a fellow blogger ‘ BirdAbroad’ posted some pictures of an apple store in Kunming Yunnan province, China. Which turn out to be a fake apple store ! Her blog post was mentioned in different international news. I am sure you follow that news.

Last Sunday ( 25.September.2011 ) I walk passed an ‘ apple store’ in Kaili, Guizhou Province, China. Kaili is a very small city in Guizhou province. It’s a prefecture of Miao and Dong. According to wikipedia : Kaili has a population of only 50,000 . That’s a very small population for a city in China. As I saw this ‘apple store’, I remember reading on a blog ( BirdAbroad ) ” Apple never writes “Apple Store” on it’s signs – it just puts up the glowing, iconic fruit.”  But this ‘apple store’ had written SMART STORE besides the apple sign. As I walked in, i saw ipad, iphones, Macbook, Macbook Pro but I did not see MacBook Air. And there was plenty of  apple accessories. All the workers were wearing blue t-shirts. I wonder if this is just another fake apple store in China !

Golitha Falls

Golitha Falls are situated near the  famous Bodmin Moor. The name Golitha derives from the old Cornish word for obstruction. It is an area of old woodland, the famous Fowey river runs alongside it. As you walk through the wood and beside the river, the fresh air will refresh you. It’s not a very long walk, but it’s definitely worth walking.
