GZ 01: People's Park

I had the chance to spend a brief week in Guangzhou and thus the start of another breezy series. People's Park in Guangzhou aka Renmin Park. Do ignore the overly lush appearance of the greens. I used a 'rich' setting in my camera and the reality was not so jealousy inducing. All those people seen on the benches are indulging themselves with cards, various board games and mahjong. A few were stretching up for tai-chi to the tunes of local music. This spot is more towards the South gate. Towards the North Gate are some government official buildings, such as the Planning Bureau and Statistics Office.

The old trees in the park are a delight, Ayush, but the garden beds look like they could do with the touch of an expert gardener.

The vividness of the green does not bother me at all.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment, Ray. I think the gardeners were tempted to join the boardgames and what not.

I am inytrigued by the statue Ayush. I wonnder who it is dedicated to?
Ayush Basu: I confess I have no idea, I could not read what's written there below and no local was accompanying me then. Thank you for the comment.
You certainly get about a bit Ayush, which is good, as it means I get to see places I have never even heard of grin
Ayush Basu: and I was thinking I keep jumping from one series of a certain place to another series of another place, SC visitors would breathe a sigh of relief when I am done grin
Did you see people doing qigong in the park?
Ayush Basu: Perhaps I did, I wouldn't know grin

Looks to be a lovely setting and I like the statue of a normal person (as opposed to some statesman or military leader). The outdoor games sound fun.
Ayush Basu: Now that you put it that way, I agree with you Alan
une belle pose pour l'éternité ,élgance je vous dit
Ayush Basu: merci beaucoup pour votre visite
People's Park looks to be the ideal spot to while away a nice sunny day, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Yes it really is. If you could fine a bit of your own personal space

I would never breath a sign of relief. I will never visit the places you do, so in this case I can gave a peek of this culture.
Rotterdam is one of the friend cities of Guangzhou.
A wonderful park in the big city.
You were for work here or on vacation?
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the reassuring words. Yes, a bit of greenery in big cities is always a big hit. I was there on work and had one day off in between.
this is a beautiful lush park Ayush... the tree on the right must be 400 years old... i like the statue of the lady carrying her basket....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Peter
A very nice shot.
Ayush Basu: Thanks Michael
This is a really nice shot of "everyday life" in the presence of a majestic statue!
Ayush Basu: Glad to get your input on this one Elizabeth

Did someone mention tai-chi??? I'd be there in a New York minute, Ayush, if I could find a place to learn/practice that! I like the lady statue beckoning us....
Ayush Basu: It certainly looked that the place was hosting a sizable number of practitioners, Ginnie

The rich setting lets the greens stand out against the rest. Interesting result.

I had to look up where Guangzhou is.
