Travel Blogs from Yangshuo
Sorry for the lack of updates--I've been extremely busy recently. The parents have arrived (well, they actually arrived Dec. 21st). They immediately took a bus up to Hechuan and stayed for 4 days in my wondrous town (which, by the way, had its first bar open up 18 days ago!--needless to say, we all gave it a warm welcome).

... a rooftop bar like a couple of the other hostels, at night in Mojos, a group of Chinese boys and girls do break dancing in the bar...that was interesting and unexpected.
