As seen from our hotel room window
With our ultimate destination next being Kunming, we had 2 routes to get there - either through Sanjiang and Liuzhou, or through Kaili. For various reasons, Sanjiang was our preferred waypoint but, at 9:30AM when neither the 7:30AM nor 8:30AM buses to Sanjiang had come through (supposedly the only morning options), we felt forced to change our plans. Buses to Congjiang and Kaili took up the rest of the day, with uncomfortable hours of traditional music on the DVD player pitched somewhere in the screeching range.

The next day we boarded a sleeper train for Kunming and, 14 hours later, were back in a city we'd first visited 5 months ago.
