Generally the day was really good, the sights were interesting and we had a scream between us but definitely not the best value for money we have spent
Erica and I went out to a restaurant called the Rabbit's Head for dinner well that is how the symbols are translated. We spent about 5 minutes outside the front door looking at the chinese symbols we had been given and for the life of us we couldnt match them. Upon entering we were made a real fuss of. We must have had about 5 waitresses round our table laughing and talking to us, I spoke back but they didnt have a word of english and I had left the china book at the hostel for some reason. Through a process of pointing at peoples tables and chefs ingrediants I thought I had managed to convince them we didnt want intestines, bugs, insects etc. When something arrived we had green beans with garlic and lemongrass, some kind of skewers of meat that tasted like horse or donkey (the hostel later told me it was beef but I'm still not sure) and a Sichzuan Rabbit Hot Pot the most famous local dish. We were given big plastic gloves to eat with and they kept the china tea coming, I kept going to the fridge to help myself to beers though. It was really good but was spicy and clearly had the ability to blow everything out of your system so we both took it easy on the really hot dressing but the rabbits legs were really good. Still we went to a place called the rabbits head and didnt actually get a rabbits head, thats a little disappointing.
We went back to the hostel and had a few more swigs and an early night (about 10:30).
Happy Birthday Victoria, have a great time camping xxx
