AQ Feature

East Meets South

Mexicans and Chinese learn, play and work together.

Mexico's Chinese population and links between the two cultures continue to grow as new business and trade opportunities bring the two countries together. In this photo essay, AQ explores the multiple dimensions of their growing ties with a snapshot of life in Mexico City's Barrio Chino and, 186 miles (300 kilometers) to the west, in Morelia, Michoacán—the center of operations for Golden Ocean Mining. All images were taken in December 2011.
