... we arrive in Guilin. We are met by Kenny, a very chatty man fluent in English. We will be with him for three days and we think we'll do just fine.

It would have been nice to stay longer and see more which is why we wondered why we could not have set off earlier in the morning if Steven knew that it was going to be so busy. We made our way through a small open air ...
