The New Apartment

It’s been a busy month among busy months, and as I look now, I see that I have failed to make even one post in the last 31 days, a sore failure on my part.

After much discussion, preparation and rescheduling, I finally made the move the Guangzhou, way down south next to Hong Kong, but as I write this post I am currently sitting back in Beijing, after a week of business (and getting a Chinese Drivers License, but that’s a story of it’s own).  I will fly back south tomorrow morning to continue our project, and then it’s off to Hong Kong on Wednesday or Thursday for a visa issue.

In the meantime, I have a few pictures of the new place.  I have always had a hard time photographing indoor spaces, and this was no exception.  To compound the fact, I was also in the process of departure for Beijing, as can be seen in the clothing scattered around the rooms.  I had washed all of my things the night before, but Guangzhou is humid to the point where nothing dries.  Laying it all out inside the space seemed like a good idea, but was of no avail.

Oh yes, and my balcony overlooks an industrial complex and highway.  Most excellent

I haven’t had much chance to explore this new city, other than the compulsory trip to Ikea, but I’m hoping that within this next week I will have a bit more time to get some pictures of the community I live in.  It is gated, there are palm trees, and if I didn’t no better I would have never picked it as a part of China.  Until then….
