Mar 1, 2008 - Day out in Sihui

Got up at 9am, in time to meet John in town at 11am, and get a bus ticket to Sihui. I showed him my technique of making sure that I got the bus I wanted, by approaching the ticket 'checker' with my ticket, even though I know it is too early to board the bus. She waved us, to sit and wait, and at least, then, because she has seen two foreigners waiting, usually what happens is that she will let us know when it is time to board the bus. My method has not let me down yet, although this time we actually recognized the characters on the front of...

We had our first group meal (absolutely...

Even some good clothes as we are going to a wedding, in the evening. I met Harley here at the college at 11 am, and we caught a bus into town.

Jul 30, 2004 - On to Shouguan

On the 28th I caught the trian through to Shouguan, 3 hours north of Guangzhou. I had abit of a wait for my ticket to turn up at the hotel, and spent the time chatting with some of the staff in broken english. I suspect I was being "groomed" - occasional switches to chinese accompanied by giggling amoung the girls, and the usual "you like chinese girls?" I was relieved however to hear that the young guy who was a bit of a smooth talker had a girlfriend. I may not have mentioned that when I checked in, soaked in sweat, he said "you are very...
