Hello, Guangzhou. And hello world, from Guangzhou. Here is what I see from my hotel window today:
It is a very interesting place. Today, I had a bit of a walk not just along the main urban avenues, full of neon and LED signs and modern high-tech stores, but also in some of the back alleys, complete with street vendors, stray dogs, and 60-70 year old crumbling buildings, some abandoned. In short… a real city with a real history.
For what it’s worth, I am here on account of a conference about a planned space-borne gravitational wave detector called TianQin.
