Because of work, I had the pleasure of a two-week stay in Shantou (汕頭) in southern China. So for the next week or so we'll be leaving Japan and traveling through the sights of Shantou and nearby Chaozhou (潮州). I decided against taking my Nikon d300 to save luggage space, and took instead my trusty and much-loved point-and-shoot Panasonic Lumix. Now I see, however, why I bought the Nikon! Darn. Well, despite all that, I hope you enjoy this little jaunt as much as I did. I only wish I'd had more time for photography and less work . . . But who among us wouldn't say the same.
