Where I stayed

Flag of China  , Yunnan,
Tuesday, June 10, 2014

"We spent today visiting religious temples and relaxing at the beach, making sand sculptures and obeserving others' sand sculptures. By the end of the day Mrs Bryce and Mr McFarlane practised the gay gordons in front of the beach.... pics and videos will soon be up on my instagram @robbbbbeeeeeeeeee" - Robbie

"We went to the beach and Ryan became a sand mermiad who was at least a C cup!" - Natasha

"Today we went to an old town near Yuxi called Tonghai. Afterwards we went to a beach and some of us went on a pedal boat ride. Also at dinner we took panorama photos as we sat around the table - Angus's faces looked wierd and funny in all of them!" - Gregor

"Today I became a mermaid!" - Ryan

"Dinner was amazing today - we had actual fries! It was magic. Sometimes the food can be a bit exotic but tonight it was so good. I had a pretty good time today. I got asked for a picture with random Chinese people twice it was very flattering!" - Robbie

(on a comfort break today) "Just get over the hole and let it go!" - Mrs Bryce

"We have arrived in Yunnan! I like it better than Beijing. Its more calm and peaceful and the scenery is beautiful. Yesterday when walking back to our hotel, we came across a sort of concert , and people were just randomy playing their own music and dancing with each other in the streets. It was beautifully unique. Today we are at the beach, theres sand between my toes, mixed in with suncream and mosquito repellant - but then again thats better than Mrs Bryce chasing you around until you do put it on! I'm excited to see what else will await in Yuxi, but for now I'm away on a boat. And knowing my clumsiness its not going to end well!" - Carla

(To put minds at ease here - the boat ride was in fact a success - no casualties!)

"The temples were extraordinary and in such a tranquil place. Our guide was an absolute gentleman who spoke excellent English. I never thought I would willingly have a full cup of tea - let alone ask for ANOTHER! Needs must on this occasion. Still dont get the hype though" - Mr McF

"Beautiful day, gentle sunshine and a breeze. We worked hard climbing the forest paths to the temples and pavilions of Buddah, Confucius, Tao and Dei. Refueled but lunch was a tricky combination of foods. Used up more enrgy on the pedal boat - no one fell in and no low speed crashes! Topped off with a satisfying meal. Getting used to this!" - Mrs Morrison

I'm enjoying reading all your comments and seeing the photographs. It's bringing back lots of good memories from the very first China trip that I went on which I think was 7 years ago now! Looks a wonderful trip - wish I was there :)
