... this area so friendly. Families were all speaking to us and getting their children to say "hello'. We met a lovely old lady on the bridge in Changsha who told me I was beautiful and desperately wanted to have her photo taken with us. This is an area where they see many Chinese tourists, but very few foreigner tourists.
A really fantastic day, and definitely the highlight of our holiday for me!
... come back and explore more on Saturday.
We then went to find an Indian Restaurant. Unfortunately the one the Westin Hotel Conciage recommended was closed for the Spring Festival, but we were directed to another one, Taste of India, which was excellent, wonderful samosas and succulent chicken korma and chicken tikka.
... with a little park by the river. We had lunch in a the delightful "Orient Express" French Restaurant where the staff were lovely and helpful. Two old carriages have been made into dining cars. Weather permitting we plan to return for an evening meal during our stay.
An excellent first day in Guangzhou, in the old Cantonese region.
Traveled by overnight D Soft Sleeper train from Xiamen to Guangzhou, leaving at 17.45 and arriving at 06.30 this morning. The train was old and the facilities were not as good as when I traveled on a Chinese overnight train previously. This one had squat toilets and a wash hand unit which was stained and flaking and had clearly seen better days. Not a 5 star experience, but a Chinese experience nonetheless!
... and make way to KTV. Grouped with the usual subjects, Zac, Leon, Jon, Laura and I, hit KTV with a few Asian friends. The room was split with half foreigners and half local. We danced, we sang, we drank and we had a good time. Nothing out of the ordinary took place other than Zac making friends with one of the locale girls. This made for some good discussion later, but, as I’ve said, KTV this time was same, same, but different.
