polluted air, confusing traffic
In a nutshell
These weapons of crass destruction remain hidden from UN inspectors
For those of you needing transportation to or from the new Baiyun Airport (code CAN) there is indeed a scheduled bus. At the bottom ground level of the airport, in both terminals A and B, they have 8 bus lines. Most go to Guangzhou. On the very bottom of the signs = look carefully is a small "Foshan" bus #9 that is currently (2007) $28 rmb one way. It is not a hotel shuttle but a city shuttle. It goes to the main bus terminal in downtown Foshan. The bus terminal is perhaps a mile north of the Foshan Hotel.

This being my first visit to my Grandfather's Village, and the first time i'd be meeting many relatives, it becomes obligatory to host a dinner for ( blood ) relatives. But being outside the big urban cities, 8 tables of 11 per table cost about 9$ pp with drinks, and it was a 10 course dinner

Favorite thing: The nice thing about going to some of the smaller towns in China is seeing things done the old fashioned way. Once you escape the modern city shopping malls and industrial parks, glimpses of days gone by can be appreciated for all their simplicity.
Foshan is not exactly a village in the countryside, but it still maintains a certain small town atmosphere making it worth the short bus ride from Guangzhou.
Fondest memory: These two fellows are wearing similar clothes and seem to be performing some kind of synchronized cotton candy making demonstration using a pedal powered contraption.
The only difference one might perceive between them is the red and blue colors of the signs advertising the cotton candy's flavor, yet both say "pineapple".
Too bad; I wanted hami melon. (I actually had green hami melon flavored popcorn once in Shenyang.)
I'm always baffled in China when seeing rows of touts selling the exact same thing with no different price; whether it's eggs, batteries, shoe insoles or cotton candy.
