A lot has happened since the last entry. No computer access has kept us from updating. I'm at a free computer terminal at Hung Hom train station in Kowloon, Hong Kong right now so I'll make this quick.
We took a uncomfortable bus ride from Yangshuo to Guangzhou and arrived at 5am in Guangzhou on the 29th. Spent the day exploring and being gawked at. Not many foreigners there. The parks we saw were nice but other than that Guangzhou is a huge, hard city.
Took a train to Hong Kong on the 30th. Made our way to the Vietnamese consulate to get visas. HK IS CRAZY. Spent NYE in HK with my Dad and his gf and had a great time wandering, shopping, eating great food and absorbing life.
Time to board our train back to Guangzhou. Hoping to purchase overnight train tickets to depart to Nanning this evening and from there take one more overnight train to Hanoi.
Two days, three trains... IF all goes as planned.
We'll update again from Hanoi.
HAPPY NEW YEAR. EMBRACE 2012!
