20 hours on a train.....

Hard sleeper part two! This time we weren't the only Westerners on the train; some people just down the corridor from us were from Holland and Belgium and on an organised tour through China, so the amount of staring was split between us all! A welcome relief! Not much to say about a 20 hour train journey, except that I nearly fell off the top bunk whilst trying to get down in the dark - pretty funny!

Arrived in Guilin this afternoon, and as the Guru Lonely Planet says, this is a town built to cater for tourists visiting the surrounding area (i.e. there is nothing to do in this city!). We have booked oursevles onto a trip (with an English speaking guide - amazing!) tomorrow to see the rice terraces at Longji. The following day we head for Yangshuo and a sedate life on the river for a few days! BLISS!!!
