China Guangzhou Pasta

17 April 2019

The river that becomes a delta

There will not be many pics tonight because I took too many earlier and I did not stay out too long because I already walked enough today.
Also my dinner took too long to come but more on that with the dinner pic.

Tonight I walked down to the Pearl river, which may or may not be about 10 rivers merged into the Pearl river delta, and is generally known as the Canton river or Zhujiang. No one appreciates my Geography lessons. Did you know that Pluto is not a planet?
Anyway....

Down at the river there are actually a lot of nightclubs, huge restaurants, fancy hotels and river cruises featuring neon lights, not a lot for me to actually do but plenty for me to look at and be too cheap to partake in.
Short update is short, to the pics.

China-Guangzhou-Pasta - This street is the weather gauge. Last night it was used for sun, yesterday morning flood, before that mist. Tonight it is used for hazy sun at dusk.

These rocks look like jubes. Which are those sugar colored lollies only these rocks are a lot bigger, unless you know of fist sized jubes in which case where can I get one? I tried to eat one but they are not soft at all like a jube. I think they might actually be made of recycled plastic.

The mighty Pearl river, it is not a particularly inspiring view tonight, nothing like the amazing views in Chongqing from last year. The riverbank areas are nicely developed for easy walking.

And now my dinner. I ordered Hainanese chicken rice. A local specialty despite this being Guangdong and not Hainan. Unfortunately, 1 hour wait. So I ordered a weird looking pork thing in a clay pot. 45 minute wait. I asked in Chinese what would be fast? Wonton soup, bbq pork on rice, fried rice or pasta. Vegetarian pasta it is! It was actually really nice once I added enough pepper and chilli to suitably numb my tastebuds. Thats all for now, after 100k steps in two days, I probably need to plan a slightly more restful day tomorrow. I am growing weak with old age.
