A Chinese Affair Part XI

Finally, after a two hour long adventure, I reached the last stages of this crazy old mental asylum partly turned into a Chinese day spa. At this stage it turned out, that ward one was indeed some kind of a spa of its own. I had already found a jacuzzi, and the tiled floors hinted,Continue reading “A Chinese Affair Part XI”

A Chinese Affair Part X

The newest wing of the hospital began with a narrow corridor. Water had found its way in from somewhere. Probably through the broken window to the left. There weren’t too many entrances to the oldest part of the hospital, but they did make up for that here. What is this, the third? And I’m stillContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part X”

A Chinese Affair Part IX

The first room by the corridor was a mess. There’s a large fabric covering carboard boxes with Chinese writing on them and some desks at the back. Behind them were even more boxes of something important needed in running the welfare centre. Another room with lots of closets, but this one was different from theContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part IX”

A Chinese Affair Part VIII

A view from the third floor balcony. And this one made me quite sad. The surrounding nature was beautiful and actually the two older hospital buildings were nice and well designed, too. Right next to the balcony and the beautiful view were the isolation rooms. Quite a contrast. They had thick metal doors, apparently bulletproofContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part VIII”

A Chinese Affair Part VII

Old main building, floor two, room one. Wall paintings like these can be found in schools and other public buildins from the 1950’s and early 1960’s. They indicate, that indeed no major renovations had been made. Another messed up office with the small white things appearing again. Still wonder what they are. The photo isContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part VII”

A Chinese Affair Part VI

A closer look at the narrow metallic shelves, the use of which I have wondered so many times before. The only thing I can think of is, that there has been an archive room somewhere in the building and these have been brought out from there. A look back towards the main entrance, which isContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part VI”

A Chinese Affair Part V

Upstairs I found a small room with a windowed wall towards the lobby. This must have been used by the staff of the hospital. This is probably closest to finding myself from an abandoned building. I used to work for a sister newspaper of this one back in the summer of 2011, and we exchangedContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part V”

A Chinese Affair Part IV

The red door let to a corridor with more messy rooms. They contained the same stuff as the previous ones: chinese paintings, chairs and tables. There seemed to be absolutely no logic in how the furniture was stored. When exiting one room you could never know what would be in the next one. In thisContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part IV”

A Chinese Affair Part III

The first find was a connecting corridor to the second corridor in this wing. It was like H-shaped with one row of rooms on both sides and one row of rooms in the middle. In the first room were chopsticks, china and something, which looked a little like my school desk years back. Notice theContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part III”

A Chinese Affair Part II

At the end of the last post we were left walking a red carpet into a former mental asylum turned into a some sort of a Chinese day spa. What greeted unauthorized visitors in the hall was a work of Chinese art now destroyed. There was also a large reception desk, which to me looksContinue reading “A Chinese Affair Part II”
