Guilin is beautiful. It is the tourist hot spot in Ch*na! I am so glad we came here and saw our daughters home town!
This is the Li River Cruise!
Whenever I saw chinese drawings of mountains I thought they just don't know how to draw them but in Guilin the mountains look like this- like the drawings I see in China!
I love this pic of Hubby, Sarah and Anna!
I was a little nervous with the girls on the deck. Honestly I could see one of the new girls falling in. They are not that coordinated and tripping is not uncommon.
The kids did get a little bored on the cruise- the adults loved it!
The sight were fantastic!
As I post more pics I realize that these two are my smilers! They are easy to photograph!!
It was actually a nicer day than it looks in the pics.
Usually she's a happy girl! I am thankful for that!!
Surprise, Anna fell asleep!
At the end of the cruise we shopped in this little town- sorry, I can't remember the name!
Everybody was following us. They all wanted to sell us something.
This girl works at embroidery- she is incredibly good at it! I was surprised she looked up and smiled!!
I love this pic of Sarah checking her out!
He would play his flute and then want us to by them- believe me we would not be able to play like him!
Next was the evening cruise to see all the lights n the river in the middle of town. It was nice but I'm more up for the natural beauty. It was a little too disneyish...
The city is beautiful!
The architecture, the buildings, the bridges and the landscape! It is a clean cute city devoted to tourism. No industry here, so it is cleaner than other cities in China.
The fisherman send the birds to catch the fish. There is a ring around the birds neck so they cannot swallow the fish - they cough it up and he gives them a little treat that the can swallow..
At 10:00 every night this hotel turns into a waterfall! Water comes pouring over the roofline and down the windows.
It was a busy day and we were all tired!! Time to head back to the hotel. Bedtime was a huge challenge. Emma has trouble settling down. Thank goodness it has gotten a little better!
