Port and Nanning

The week highlights were a visit to the Guangxi Qinzhou Free Trade Port and the provincial capital, Nanning.
The coastal area of Guangxi is slated as China's southwest import/export port.
Complete with model and speeches, the port will focus on vehicle import/export, imported wine/spirits, crude oil storage and trade, nonferrous metals, seafood, and agricultural products.
An agreement was signed between the Port Authority and the University; we were present as the foreign guests. After pictures and gift exchange, we were treated to a celebratory dinner.
We headed off to the provincial capital of Nanning for the weekend to meet up with our Amity colleagues.
Lena (Swedish) and Connie (American) have taught in China 15+ years and are moving from the south to the north of China this summer.
 We checked out the Science and Technology Museum, complete with robotic band.
And of course Daniel celebrated the WC of Man.
