Guangzhou – Yue Xiu Park

Not too far away from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is the grand Yue Xiu Park. Lots is happening in the Chinese parks I visited, but Yue Xiu was the most active of those. The kicking feather ball, or whatever you call that thing, is ofcourse the most popular of them all, having a very clear social role – anyone can cut in and join the group without facing too many social barriers. Other than that, people singing, playing music, dancing, practicing Tai-Chi, playing around, it was very pleasant to watch.

The park itself is nice, though I think the lake needs some urgent maintenance.

Crossing the street from Sun Yat Sen Memorial hall to Yue Xiu Park I noticed yet another car accident. While in Guangzhou for a couple of days I saw 3 small car accidents.

What is interesting about those car accidents is that they were usually addressed in a very calm manner by both parties, slowly getting out of the car, negotiating whatever needs to be negotiated and solving the issue. In the case of a more crowded street where the police was involved, the other passing cars didn’t make a big fuss of the whole thing, atleast not nearly as much as I would have expected from other places I’ve been to.
