Third time’s a charm!
It was almost midnight and we were stuck approximately 3 miles from the hotel. So we figured, we would hop in a taxi and it would take us back. Me, being all suave, walks up to a taxi driver, show him the hotel address, and he says 100¥. We hop in knowing the rates were high, but when we arrived at the Timmy Hotel, his rate conveniently doubled. Now we KNOW we were being taken advantage off with the first price. But this! THIS! Angered me. Blake calmed me down and said “Just pay it; let’s not start something, it’s China.” So I didn’t. And we paid 200¥ ($30USD) for a 20¥($3USD) ride.
Day 5: I took Blake to the grocery store called Taste. This place is the best to get a hot meal for a cheap price: Boneless duck breast, Veggies, and rice was 13.80¥ ($2.02USD)
Day 6: Wandering, Soft Shell Crab ramen,
Day 7: Sinus Infection. Days upon days of rest. But, super excited to walk in and buy antibiotics without seeing a doctor, having blood work, etc.
Days 8-12: Moving, Guangzhou Zoo, Xueliu Park, Temple of six Banyan Trees, IKEA, and food. Lots and lots of food.
Day 13: Tax information, signed up for Chinese lessons, and by then, we were Exhausted!
Attached are some photos from the past couple of weeks. I’ll try to delve into more detail once i figure out this travel blog thing!
