Riding in the bus from the Li River dock to Xingping, and then from Xingping to Yangshuo, I couldn't help but think "this is it
The sites of "wild" China are the most beautiful in the world. I actually considered asking the bus driver to stop the bus, so I could get off at one of the villages to explore.
wish I had. That may be one regret I'll have for a long time. Of course, I still have three months to visit remote villages in Sichuan. But seeing the villages in Guangxi brought me back...to my childhood's imagination of China.
But, at the same time, I didn't want to be stranded, either. It actually would be nice, but I had a plane ride to catch on Tuesday, so...I was on a time schedule.
Perhaps when my Chinese is a lot better, I'll one day get off the bus at one of these villages. I just...really want to talk with the people, and learn about their lifestyles.
