After the bus jouney we arrived at our destination and it couldnt have been a moment too soon。 As it was quite late we went with a tout from the bus station to a hotel as we werent sure where we were and were pretty tired。 He lied to us so much it was unbelievable but the room was cheap。It was all going ok until he woke us this morning hammering on our door, so much that Russell told be they were doing building and noone was knocking on our door。When Russell got up,he was blabbering on about a free breakfast and tours, when Russell said no thanks, he still wouldnt leave and in the end Russell had to shout at him and tell him to go away to get him to listen!To be fair most of the chinese people we have met have been very friendly but some of them are just so rude not just to us but each other as well。 They dont believe in queueing and will litterally push you out of their way。 Oh well,at least it makes everyone in the UK seem nice。

After our rude awakening we hired some bikes and rode to a place called Moon Hill, it was stunning。 We rode through beautiful countryside and farming villages。 I just cant explain how wonderful and different these places are, like nothing we have seen before。 It can be so difficult at times doing such the simplest things here but when you get to places like this it makes it much worthwhile。 All I can say is I cannot wait to see what the rest of China has to offer.
