Liuzhou Laowai

Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Blue Sky; Bluer Water

Today in my perambulations around the city, I saw something rarely seen in Liuzhou.

Yes, astonishingly, that is blue sky behind the Bubugao Tower. I had been in Liuzhou several years before I saw blue sky. In the early 2000s the government moved most of the factories out of the city centre and closed down the worst polluters. The air cleared up rapidly.

However, about five or so years ago, the insane desire for everyone in China to buy a car ended that and pollution levels are back to where they were.

I also spotted this. The sunken area in the People’s Square (behind the museum and in front of Bubugao) has once again been turned into a huge paddling pool to amuse the kids during next weeks National Day holiday. The blue effect is achieved by lining the entire depression with blue coloured plastic.

This year, the aka Mid-Autumn Festival falls in the middle of the National Day holiday – on Wednesday 4th. Happy Mooncakes!
