Our last day in Nanjing was superb - went to the local national park. Beautiful day for it too. It's the Purple-Gold mountain Zhongshang (I think) park. Intriguing name, but after climbging the Linggu Pagoda to the top (eight storeys) we realised why - all the trees were literally golden and purple, so amazing to see and a brilliant view to boot. The photos will tell a better story though.
We're here for a few days then heading south to Hangzhou for a few days - it's apparently a lovely rural attraction - so good for a few nights there then south to Macau, the Las Vegas of the East!
Just to add, I had a wake-up call at 6am in Nanjing from the hostel's kitten! She was stuck in a room next to us and woudln't stop miowing so I had to get the night staff to open up the room to let her out - she woudln't stop purring in my arms for ages! I miss the wake-up calls from Roofie!
Sam: Short one from me because im very hungover and feel rotten! Shanghai is different. Its what i imagine new york to look like. Its very strange especially as we've just come from peaceful Nanjing. We have a few days to get used to it though. Last night we met two guys from... Staines!! They knew stanwell moor, the crooked billet, the george! It was very surreal and we ended up having a great night. Paying for it today though so i had to console myself with a new gucci bag. Much to see in Shanghai so ill have more to write about soon. Something funny... Giles got an acute attack of diarhoea while we were out on the streets today and he had to run all the way home. I haven't laughed that much in ages!
