The press releases haven’t exaggerated. Guangzhou is pulling out all the stops for the Asia Games. Very happily, I get to enjoy the benefits of those efforts. Even the city buses have undergone refurbishment and clean-up. Many of the electronic destination signs on the buses have been put in both English and Chinese. That is a huge help.
I’ve mentioned wanting to go on a night cruise of the Pearl River. I’m posting a couple of photos to give you some idea why. Please keep in mind these were shot with my cell phone from a moving bus. It was one time when I’ve silently prayed for slow, heavy traffic, just so the bus would be still enough I could take some good pictures. The rainbow-lit tower is called “The Lady”. No one told us this until we had lived here for almost a year. Up to that point, we just called it “The Chinese Finger-Puzzle Tower”. It’s a significant landmark and very near to where we meet for church.
winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂
