Once again mosquitos waged war against us, once again striking Heathers eye and more amusingly Jo's lip -which swelled up a beauty! She now has more appreciation for Angelina Jolie's ability to speak, eat and her brush teeth beyond her lips.
Can't say we were all that excited about the place except for the opportunity eat reasonable Western food and speak English. Taking ourselves off for a scenic bike ride was out of the question in the heat so we did the river cruise thing in a small noisy motor boat and took photos of scenes similar to Halong Bay in Vietnam.
Returning to a very hot Guilin we search department stores in vain for t'shirts and singlet tops -where is a Glassons store when you need one?!?! Then spent our last night travelling getting little sleep in a very disruptive dorm room (Heather played the role of bed traffic director until the early hours), then off to the airport in the morning, destination Shanghai.
