Owen went with us in the train and we were picked up by a lady driver in Sochuan, a lady of 46 with two sons of 24 ad 19, running her own business. The drive lasted 90 minutes to our next hotel in Renhua, the government Jincheng hotel.
Today June first we went to a stadium full with children, who celebrated International Children's Day, following that we drove just outside Renhua and went up the Danxiashan mountain range by cable car, another national park that is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage sitewww.danxiashan.net.
In Renhua we found by chance on the main square a terrace that sold pitchers of local draught beer! Tonight we had a very nice dinner there that we pointed out in the kitchen, including a life chicken. Later Owen happened to pass by so we invited him to join us. Many Chinese passers by said 'hello' to us. We had a very pleasant evening. Owen told us that we are his first foreign tourists who did the descent from the mountain by foot. “You are the first foreigners who went up by cable cart and walked down. I am impressed, you tired me out”, he said.
