Last night, Nan took a night cruise around Guangzhou. She reports that what we thought of as Guangzhou, our tiny, picturesque, Shamian Island filled with cobblestones and palm trees, is nothing whatsoever what Guangzhou is really like, It is a huge, bustling brightly lit city that is so beautifully lit up at night, and is so major a metropolis with so many new skyscrapers and condominiums, it took her breath away and she can't wait to come back. And this is a woman who has travelled all over! WOW! The pictures did not really come out, but it is an extraordinary city! To say where we are staying is Guangzhou is like saying Little Italy is NYC. There is just SO MUCH MORE!
