... saw the mountains that are on the back of the 20 yuan bill.
After that, I took a nap in the van and waited for everyone to finish shopping for ****. We went for lunch of noodles and then visited some famous Chinese places that I have no idea what they were.
The driver brought me to the train station on the way back and I was way too tired to do couchsurfing, so I just sent a text to my host I had lined up and told him I was too tired. It was true.

In the end Brock stayed in the train station with our stuff for a few hours while I went out to the silk market and picked up a few things for myself and as gifts.

Great location. The rooms to this "museum" hotel are beautifully decorated. Enjoyed a room overlooking the lake and city skyline. Internet cabelling in all rooms. Front desk employees were extremely helpful. Had a wonderful stay.
