The weather was pretty wet and miserable when we left Zhaoxing on Christmas Eve so didn't mind spending most of the day on the bus. Pretty ambitious plan to try and piece together 3 bus journeys to reach Guiyang by the end of the day. First bus took us to Conjiang and the road was about the worst we’ve seen so far on this trip. Just one big …

Emm and Gabs ...
We are not sure why but the Chinese tourists weren't there. Zhang Nan's father said that heaps of money was spent but they have gone bankrupt.
The final adventure was last night when we were invited to a dinner organised by Charlie (Yu Changyin), one of my post-graduate students.

... Zhang YiFei for a day. She was our second translator during our time here and she continues to teach English at the University.
We will also catch up with FuQihong who was our first contact here and who now is in charge of the foreign affairs section!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Despite the hotel being almost empty we were only able to secure a discount of 59 yuan off the normal price of 259 per night. This did include a buffet breakfast, however because the hotel was so quiet they didnt have the buffet on so instead we were given a menu in Chinese. Eventually managed to figure out what we could order but we'd been really looking forward to being able to see and chose our own food for a change so disappointed and feel they should have told us the night before when we checked in.
Room was OK, bathroom could do with redecoration as quite mouldy and grubby - have had better bathrooms in much cheaper hotels. Feel we didnt really get much more for the extra 100 yuan we'd spent over the price we would normally spend.
