This is a video I took probably in 2010 to show how big the university where I worked in 2008 and 2010 is. There is a busy "ring road" out the front of the university so you can see a variety of Chinese vehicles passing the university. It was noisy and I could only get a small part of the university on camera.
The pedestrian crossing leads to the front main gate - which has a huge statue and lakes with giant gold fish, and pots which contain the plants of Lotus. The plant lies dormant until spring/summer and then grows throwing huge leaves, buds and later flowers some metre above the water.
It is here that I first saw Lotus up close.
I don't think anyone will see this. Just practicing something.
