We lived in Baiyun Shan (White Cloud Mountain) during our stay in Guangzhou. It was then a mix of industry, farms, and residential areas, some kilometers from downtown. Our campus was right at the end of one of the runways of Guangzhou Airport, and no lecture could go without interruption by a jet roaring overhead. No doubt the jets are still flying, but I expect the old neighbourhood has changed dramatically since 1983.
