GZ 13: Night Stroll

Having somewhat limited time on my hands in Guangzhou, I took to strolling around, quite aimlessly, around my accommodation. On my very first night there, I quickly learned the lessons that auto traffic is not to be trifled with. For pedestrians wishing to cross the roads, designated crossings or overhead bridges [such as this one] are the best bets. Jaywalking is not an option. 


However, these overhead bridges are quite well designed. They have a gentle gradient, the steps are cut at reasonable heights and the middle of the steps makes a ramp for rolling down trolleys, etc. Furthermore, they are well illuminated and have some vegetation, so it is somewhat aesthetically pleasing.

These people seem to be fond of this metallic green type car.
Ayush Basu: That is their taxi if I recall correctly. Thank you very much for your visit Louis
