Weekend in Yangshuo

I'm a big fan of the proverb; "A picture paints a thousand words", so here you go:

Haha! Chinese sleeping bus. I can admit that they're not very comfy (narrow and short beds), but I got some hours of sleep after all.

Jay and Laura! Bamboo rafting on the Li River.

This scenic spot is the inspiration of the 20 RMB note!

Yangshuo by night! A lot of karst mountains surround the little city, which makes the atmosphere very special. Our hostel had the highest view-point in town, yeey.

I also went on a light show Saturday night. It was really nice and special with the mountains in the back. The director is also the director of the opening & closing ceremonies of the Olympic games in Beijing.

On Sunday we went up to the "Moon hill". 800 steps.

We also went into the "Water cave", where we we had our own guide. She was so funny (not on purpose, I think), but we laughed our heads off sometimes. "This looks like breasts, some are small and some are big", "This looks like chicken wings, are you hungry?". We had to cross a little suspension bridge and a group of Chinese people was in front of us, jumping up and down and acting like crazy: She said: "Just wait a moment, Chinese people are happy". HAHA. And of course with a funny Chinese accent.

We took a mud bath inside the cave (which is supposed to be really good for our skin. Hehe), followed up by a hot spring bath.

All in all, this has been an awesome weekend, with a lot of funny scenarios (something you always get for free when travelling in China, which I appreciate a lot)!

Kjenner igjen mange av elevene da jeg pleide å vikarierende for min danske venninne, selv hadde jeg 3. 4 og 7. klasse. For en fantastisk opplevelse, og for noen fantastiske elever <3 Håper du koser deg masse, og Hils gjerne til hjertebarna mine som nå går i 4. 5. og 8. klasse. Hilsen Iris
