Part of our group, at that place where we heard the people talk about the stuff. It was great. And no international incidents were exacerbated.
I do't know why but this picture cracks me up every time I look at it. Keep in mind we are standing on a helipad overlooking an entire city featuring a very tall building.
Another view of part of our group. We all had personalized name tags at our seats. Okay, like 83% personalized, but they were very nice. Everywhere we went our hosts were extraordinarily kind and considerate, probably far more so than we deserved.
There we are, and there's that building again. It's hard to hide.
"No! Further back than that...like twenty or thirty feet further...maybe more to your right..."
You want architecture, Lion City? We got yer architecture right here.
Nobody gave it a second thought, except for us, who seemed to think that ritually burning items on a busy city sidewalk at lunchtime was out of the ordinary. The scooters were really good at avoiding it though.
Afternoon debrief, last day: "You must leave here as ignorant as when you arrived, so cough up all that learning RIGHT NOW."
"...something something IS NOT THE SAME AS INNOVATION."
