... four stayed in town and did some retail therapy. Our first stop was a visit to an old house still occupied by two elderly sisters who were very keen to welcome us.

... left us in the capable hands of an enraged bus lady, presumably as part of our punishment for skipping the afternoon tour. China's countryside seems to be full of enraged bus ladies, grabbing your luggage, throwing it in their bus' storage, and yelling at other bus ladies who try to take it out and put it under their own buses.
Two rival bus ladies fought it out for another group of laowai (foreigners) who, unfortunately, could not speak Chinese ...
