home again

did we really do all that!

now, home again. our 'faithful friends' with 4 legs WERE pleased to see us and didnt bark at us, as were our faithful children who looked after everything so well!. thankyou so much to everyone who helped make it all possible!
now all we have to do to 'complete the picture' is put on the last of the photos so you can all see the rest of the journey. thanks for keeping track of us, rose and mike.

if you have ever seen the hsbc advert with the birds they use for fishing you will know how beautiful guilin is.
beautiful / unusual limestone hills and the river li. what a combination. the birds they use to fish are so well trained they are like our springer dogs catching rabbits!
getting a bit tired now and thinking about home! its in the 90 s, 11 o clock at night, and we are only in our hotel room with the air conditioning on!, had fabulous time today walking through paddy fields, taking pictures of water buffalow and 'the locals'.

amazing hills!

arrived on early flight from hangzhow to guilin. sun has finally broken through, so temp instantly rose to 100 ! too hot to explore on our only free afternoon on the whole trip!!!!! tried for a bit, but retreated to hotels air con!.
going to see fishermen with their trained fishing birds when it cools down a bit! and see guilin by night.
having lots of chinese food still! they say in guilin that as well as eating everything with 4 legs except tables and chairs, they eat everything that flies except airoplanes! and everything in the sea except boats! sounds right!
been to visit tea plantation (green tea), interesting but expensive to buy. stick to beer - cheaper than water!
