As I shut down for the night, I will leave you with images of Guangzhou courtesy of Tess Karlinski. Thanks to Tess I have no need to book my own tour as she goes into such wonderful details.. down to the menu’s for lunch. #recommended
We’d had enough of Goat Park and were antsy to leave. Helen, our guide, asked I take a picture of her on my iPad. I had no idea why. At the corner of the park where we were supposed to meet, a man fresh-squeezed and sold bottled orange juice. Next to him, a girl toasted acorns in a wok for about two minutes. Helen said they were acorns but I wonder if they weren’t chestnuts. This spot she chose for her photograph.
