Randolf rented a nice studio south of the Pearl River near Hai Jin
Bridge. It is a cheap location in a quite street. He had a lot of visiting artist friends.
He played a lot of Chinese chess with his neighbors too.
One time he was using a Chinese prostitute to model for one of his studies, but an old
lady who was a kind of neighborhood lookout must have informed the police. It all ended in
a big laugh when Randolf asked the policeman to model for him. Guangzhou is a pretty free
place altogether. "The further away from the mountain, the less chance to fall
off." This is an old Chinese saying - meaning that Guangzhou is far away from Beijing
(the political mountain) and as such, enjoys much more freedom.
