Day 4 highlights: Today was another great day! Started off the day with a leisurely picnic in an urban park that I found. I stopped at a 7 Eleven and bought some yogurt and a berry smoothie to bring to the park (trying to mix up budget meals with a few nice meals to keep to my student budget). After the park, I took the metro to Huacheng Square. Huacheng Square is Guangzhou's modern city square/plaza where you can see many of the city's major landmarks such as the Canton Tower, Opera House, Guangzhou Museum, Guangzhou Library, etc. No cars and lots of open space make it an ideal place to stroll around. I need to come back at night, so I can see all the buildings lit up! I couldn't help but also checking out the plaza's Hello Kitty Cafe - it's just not something we have in America. However, I ultimately chose my Starbucks over the Hello Kitty Latte. After Huacheng Square, I enjoyed traditional Cantonese cuisine (some sort of braised tofu dish) before heading to the 108th floor of the Canton Tower! Time to relax now with some Netflix and a Bloody Mary. Love you all!
