Like most Chinese cities, Tianjin has an excellent, expanding metro system. Recently wanting to return to the city's Water Park (Shuishang Gongyuan) leaving the nearby metro station I fortuitously went through the wrong gate and entered a most fascinating place, the 'Zhou Enlai and Deng Yingchao Memorial Hall'. Not just documenting the late Premier's life, it explained his educational connections to nearby Nankai University, where I was ultimately heading. The University, home to the Zhou Enlai School of Government has a very pleasant campus associated with my postgraduate university, The University of Glasgow. Both universities have worked together on research, teaching and exchange collaboration since 2008. A Joint Graduate School was established in 2014.
