Fab nights sleep! First night that the girls slept more than 8 hours! Clíona knocked on the guys door to wake them up for breakfast, we're up we're up! Is all she got haha. Des came to breakfast while cian stayed in bed for a little longer. Unfortunately by this time there wasn't much left, the chef fried some eggs for us and we got some toast.
Packing bags and time to go now. We were able to leave our bags at the hotel so we ...

... fountain and they have whistles (very popular with guards in China) which they blow if the see someone sitting on the edge, or, shock-horror, if someone actually stands in the fountain area for a photoshoot. Of course, people do this at the opposite end to where the guard is, and by the time he starts walking towards them, they have scampered out. He will let the old people sit on the edge, but no-one else, and even made people move their bags back at one point.
