After arriving and checking out our cheap hotel, we were getting pessimistic. Originally, we were very up for getting hopelessly drunk, but by the time we had got our hotel it was about 1 o’clock in the morning and the feeling had started to go. Not wasting a minute we grabbed the nearest beer we could find from a corner shop like place and drank one as quick as we could. Patrick bought a whole bottle of wine to himself.
Wondering around for a brief while and we eventually found a place that Patrick knew. We finished off a second beer and waited for Patrick to finish off his wine, but he never did. It was quite funny, because there was the tell tale signs that he was a little bit of a light weight because he was already starting to slur. We waited at the lift and a heavily drunken Chinese woman stumbled out waving at us shouting hello!
The bar itself looked fairly good, but it was a shame about the people inside it. Loud and full of Chinese people who really couldn’t hold their drink. (when i tried to get to the toilet 4 people were helping a woman out, and she eventually sat on the floor preventing me from doing my business). The bar emptied soon after we arrived and I was left to argue with Patrick that people should have a licence if they want a gun.
The place got even more empty and we were forced by the staff to move onto the dance floor, where there were about 5 people dancing. Patrick did the usual American style dance of “whooing” and waving his arms in the air in a up down fashion. I was too embarrassed to go up and dance, even if I wasn’t going to see any of those people again. I ended up talking to the DJ, which was pretty cool, but he only had house music. It was time to go to sleep
Waking up early to achieve nothing
We agreed to wake up early so that we would have a whole day to do something. Disappointed with the day before because we had left so late to Shenzhen the day before. I wanted to go to the art district, but i knew there was little chance that I couldn't convince the others to go all the way across town for a short visit to a few galleries. We had decided going to a seaworld (like the one in Orlando), which was expensive, but probably worth it in the end. Patrick persuaded us to go shopping, which was quite nice at first because we found some nice authentic art work, where some real artists were making calligraphy, but to be honest you can see a lot of that all over China, so my interest wavered quickly.
