Here I am attempting to sleep on the sleeper train that will take 10 hours to reach Guilin.
Tuesday - Guilin
Asia » China » Guangxi » Guilin By Chipster April 3rd 2007 Chip RoachTuesday - This night would begin a 10 hour train ride to Guilin, China. We would get on the train shortly before midnight where we will attempt to sleep for about 10 hours and wake up in a very picturesque landscape. Guilin is known for it's beautiful landscape littered with mountains that just erupt from the ground and tower into the sky. The lanscape sometimes can look like its from another world.
You would figure that when you travel south and west for 10 hours you would actually be going to a warmer climate......NOT.... The first day in Guilin I am wearing 3 shirts and two jacket. If it wansn't for sox and underwear I would be wearing my entire wardrobe at one time (that is for the clothes which I took on this smaller trip).... This was really not very funny...lol who would have thought it could drop from 90 degrees (with high humidity) to about 50 degrees.... Can you say "the weather here really sucks"!!!!!
We will be here for three days before returning to Xiaoyan's home city. I hope you enjoy the pictures!!!!
Well, what can I tell you about me.... I'm a 42 y.o. guy married to a wonderful wife and I have an absolutely wonderful 18 month old daughter. My family and I will be traveling to China on March 17th, 2007 to visit family and to vacation. We will be in China for 4 weeks and our point of entry will start in Hong Kong and move to mainland China. I hope everyone will enjoy my pictures and travel postings. I will try to post entries as often as possible but internet access may not always be accessable.
