"Words fly away, writing remains" is the saying... Even if here they write with water on the granite pavement !
Before leaving Guiyang, I must still visit there the Hongfu temple, near the summit of Quianling Shan mountain (1300m), and also the Renmin square with the tall Mao statue.
Anshun is just a two hours bus ride distant, so that might be managed all in one day.
• checkout at the hotel.
• motorbike ride from the hotel to the Quianling Park,15Yuan.
• park visit and climb to the Hongfu temple.
• walk througj the town centre, from North to South.
• visit to the lovely Jue Yuan temple and the Renmin square.
• walk to the hotel to retrieve my backpack.
• motorbike ride from the hotel to the bus station near to Guiyang's train station, 15Yuan.
• 14:30 coach towards Anshun, 1h30, 35Yuan.
• city bus 4 to Anshun's train station, and check-in at the hotel.

Another lesson of elegance. As a matter of fact, there was a big cacophony of mixed loud music and songs around.
