China is less exotic than I thought it would be, and a lot easier to get around in. It seems to rain a lot here, and if it doesn’t, it’s still very, very humid. For those reasons, we did not see too much of Guangzhou, although we know now where all the seahorses went: they were dried, and are now being stored in (or sold from?) huge bags on the Qingping market. We got a big dose of Chinese culture in Guilin, seeing a ‘minority culture show’ in the local theatre, going on a cruise on the river Li and seeing the typicle karst landscape there, and joining a countryside bus tour, where we learned how to fish using cormorants. PETA, where are you!?!
