This is GuangZhou!

My Mom has visited Guang Zhou several times. But this is my first visit to Guang Zhou.
We went there on 24-29 of August 2010, in my holiday. We had a 5 hours flight. Hoaa!!!
Accomodation
In Guang Zhou, we stayed a Guang Zhou University Hotel. It is near the Guang Zhou University for master degree.

Transportation
The traffic in Guang Zhou is not as good as in Singapore. You can get a taxi anywhere you want. The local people use bicycle.

Before that, we had a dinner in a very Chinese restaurant with the owner of the factory. We had seafood. One day before, I was asking my mom whether there’s crab here, and thanks GOD, we had crab in the restaurant! We had fish, lobster, shell, snail, a same kind of snail like seafood in Jakarta, but it tasted very different. And the Chinese drink wine.
The factory owner brought 2 bottles of red wine, my cousin told her that we, Indonesian, don’t drink wine. But thanks GOD the waitress pour some wine to each of our glass, and we cheers, like in the movie. Lol. Red wine is great. It’s only 12% of Alcohol. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photograph.
And then we went to a bag factory. Thousand of people worked until 11 pm.

Church!
Catholic Church in Guang Zhou is very developed, just like other non-communist countries.
On Saturday evening, we went to the Church, Sacred Heart of Jesus in Yi De Lu. It’s very big and it’s gothic! We had a Chinese Mass. Of course I didn’t understand what the Priest said, but I had read the reading in that week. It was really hard to find a taxi on Saturday night. So we took a illegal public transportation. Yes, some of them offered ride with their private car, not a very good private car of course. Some kind like this car.

The church is very big! It’s gothic and it’s really cool! Unfortunately we went there after the sun sets, so I couldn’t take good photo. But if you come in the day, you might see it like this.
