Friends and Family,
About a month and a half ago a few friends and went to Zhangjiajie. It was a great trip and a very beautiful place. We had a great time in the city and a good time in the park. Unfortunately we didn't go to the main park. We overslept the second day and everyone was content with just seeing the park close to the city. …

We arrived safely and paid the driver our agreed fare (thanks to LJ again). We found where to checkin and saw our suitcases off. Then the standard security check. Had to laugh though. We were not allowed our water bottles BUT we could have taken our dead chickens in an open bucket, so there! Just a short wait in the airport gate lounge ...
