Biking in and around Yangshuo

When we look back at it it doesn't seem so long ago, but we're already traveling for 13 days...just a few more and it's over again :/. It always goes way to fast...The days started to be less busy, we had more free time that the first week we were traveling.
Anyway this day we rented some bikes to go touring around Yangshuo. Yangshuo itself is scary busy with what seems no traffic rules (except brake for red lights), so it was a bit weird to bike around there, and except for buildings there was nothing to see. Once we got out of town it started to be pretty. All around were rice fields, lots of trees. We could see buffalos being used to plow the land or just walking around, and people working on it. It is very quiet compared to the city itself.
After that we went a little further, we also crossed a bridge where we saw a man on a scooter walking him buffalo. It was a funny thing to see how the buffalo just walked in a slow pace and the owner drove after it. After about two hours we had a coffeebreak at the Giggling Tree.
When the rain stopped, and all was nice and muddy, we started our way back yo Yangshuo. Not much stops etc, just getting back asap because it was all mud now. We lunched at the Cafe del Moon (if i remember correctly) it was nice but expensive compared to the same restaurant where we had dinner the precious night. As far as anything can be called expensive outside the big cities....
And we had an afternoon off again :)
