Come on Feel the Noise.

It gets noisy in China.  Mostly, your ears just adjust and you block the disagreeable bits out (although the sound of hocking phlegm resists any filtering).   498 more words

Our one night stay in Guangzhou, China

This is the continuation of the post I wrote while I was in Nepal.

Once we were told that our flight had been cancelled due to bad weather and that we were going to spend the night in China, there was some confusion. 1,148 more words

廣州

這個周末突然間想到廣州走走。

定了兩個近郊目的地,都是重遊。

上次到「小洲村」是 2012 年 1 月了,那次也把同方向的「黃埔古港」一并處理掉。從天河區到「小洲村」巴士車程大約 40 分鐘,看看這個千年古村經過兩年有什麼改變。

進村時感覺人多了,每個人都背著「單反」,不論真業餘還是假專業,一率嚴陣以待。

走進村裡,也不用 3 數秒鐘,便看到處處都在做建築工程,小巷裡都是建築材料,運貨小車子在窄巷飛馳,寧靜的感覺失去了,代之而來的是,小洲村也在趕著上經濟發展的快車。

老實說確實有點沒趣了。逛了一圈兩個小時不夠,便打道回市區。

晚上到朋友介紹的「珠影星光城」,去年才開幕,是舊廣州電視製片廠改建的,食肆林立,環境不錯,以後除了「太古匯」外又多了一個好去處。

第二個目的地是「紅專廠」,我在 2011 年 7 月來過,當時已經十分喜歡,就是有點冷清。今次重來,喜幸整體幾乎沒有什麼改變,好些店仍在,展館沒有減少,藝術活動也仍在舉行,不像深圳那個「OCT華橋城」名存實亡,半點藝術感覺也沒能剩下來。

遊人當然是比較以前多了,但沒有人的話也不成,適當的人流也令其熱鬧一點,不似我第一次來時像隨時會倒閉似的。

看人,也不比看藝術品差勁。

可以再去。
