Thanks for all the messages etc - really good to hear from everyone !
You'll have to excuse spelling - this keyboard has only got 5 letters printed on it which is making for hard going !
We're at our last stop now before the end of our travels in China, except for Hong Kong but first we need to bring you up to date on the last week or so !
Hangzou (Spellings of towns are different everytime - must remember to bring my book next time) - was good fun, more bike riding by the great big lake that the city hasd been built up around - unfortuntale the "Highlight" of the ride was a visit to the Silk Museum - the most interesting thing about it was that it had air conditioning !
Shanghai - another big city but a lot more western - home of the knock off everything! Here we saw the famous shanghai acrobats who are so very bendy, really, really excellent. We also took a cruise at night which is the best way to see shanghai (in my opinion! Rach.
From here we took a 2 hour flight to Guilin where we transfered by bus to a mointain location near Longsheng wher we spent our anniversary. Beautiful views, very tranquil, - home to 3 of china's ethnic minorities, one being the ladies with the longest hair in the world! We did some trekking here, where, in the middle of no where these women would crop up and attempt to sell you something! It was like night of the living dead as they would pop up at the window at night nearly causing us all heart attacks.
More news soon, out of time..........
