Hangzhou News - surreal edition

A couple of weeks ago, the municipal government invited our students to attend the final day of the annual Hangzhou International Expo. The main 'entertainment' for the day was rather more lavish than usual: a mass dancing spectacle involving nearly 30,000 Hangzhou citizens - part of a nationwide assault on the Guinness record for the biggest line dance. (You can see more of that magnificent folly here. I haven't been able to find out yet if the attempt has been acknowledged as a new record.)
