And onto Wuyuan. A small town by Chinese standards - about 300,000 people. Its about 400km south east of Wuhan, or should I say a six hour bus ride. It's set in a hilly area of China and was my chance to see a bit of the countryside as scattered around the city are lots of old Huizhou villages where the traditional rural life still goes on.

... br> new local guide, Helen, who told us about the history of Wuhan on our way to
the Hubei provincial museum. I have never seen so much construction going on
anywhere in my life—even copared to Abu Dhabi! Everywhere you looked they were
tearing down old 3 story buildings and replacing them with complexes of 50
story buildings. The city is about 9 million people—larger than almost all US
cities, yet ...
