Just the atmosphere is beautiful. The river is dark. How can you know the quality? Beautiful Pearl River Bank that's it.

You are right, the river itself needs some major clean-up (like the Rhine in Europe had been cleaned years ago).

But, by calling it "beautiful atmosphere" I wanted to describe the evening activities along the river banks. Lots of people, big and small are out at night, engaging in different activities and games. People are talking and laughing. Some are  s e l l i n g  ice cream, coconuts or soft drinks. Amateur musicians playing  guitar and singing romantic songs. Some others are performing on old Chinese instruments. Joggers, bikers and kite fliers. Others are practicing dance or playing cards. Sometimes people approach me to talk about my camera, even with very poor English. But I am honored and happy to watch the scene along the river.

This is the China I like. I wish that some people here in this forum would try a bit harder to comprehend that critic addressing the system and it's problems should not be mistaken as lack of love for China and Chinese people. I do differentiate and people who are unable to differentiate I can only pity. I am aware that some people "refuse" to differentiate by intend.

For those foreigners, who share their live with a Chinese partner, it must be really "painful" sometimes to become the target of certain people here in this forum, who present themselves with a fascistic attitude and often pretend to be Chinese citizens. In fact they are not.
