Either hot and sunny or warm and wet.
I did say that I might drop by from time to time. I arrived in Zhuhai proper, after a furious taxi ride from the airport, at about midnight. I ended up in a posh room on the 11th floor, but got some good pictures of this part of the city. Good pictures will be supplied in due course. I signed in to the course on Sunday morning and went over to the flat, which I’m sharing with Michael who teaches for Gateway Language Village, and Ken who’s another of the course members and, like me, has been in China awhile. He’s been out in Xinjiang for the past three years.
Zhuhai is amazingly clear. Unless the clouds gather and it starts to rain. Then it’s amazingly wet. But it clears up to rain at lunchtime before it clears up for the afternoon. It’s much warmer and steamier here than it is in Chengdu, although the clear sky helps. Yes, I mean it. No visible layer of pollution. [25.08.13. I believe the Party Boys use the place as a holiday resort. I wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if things were arranged so that they are spared the choking filth which is killing everyone else off across the Empire.]
So far I’ve been too busy with the course to see anything of Zhuhai apart from the local area, but there’s going to be a tour on Saturday.
More in due course.
