Don’t let the bus leave you behind

April 12th

I find these kind of photos ironic because in fact there are several hundred people in places like this.

All around the old tree were people dressed up taking photos.

I tried to get a picture of a car driving across this road. Unfortunately this car ended up backing up and not going across. I didn't have time to wait for another one...

Well you know it's chicken.

Assembly Dragon Cave
While I don’t agree with ruining natural things like this, the lights and water do make for awesome photos.

Seriously you can't get away from people. This is on the boat ride we took on the Li River.

The foreign tourists had more room. We waved from our boat. I was just a bit envious of the chairs and walking space they had. Although, they probably paid more for their boat ride than we did for ours.

Pictures can be deceiving. Doesn’t this just look like a peaceful day. With awesome views of cool stuff? Yes, it was that. But put that in combination with we’re only at this spot for an hour. Oh where did the bus go? It’s lunch now, yay. Wait we aren’t done eating yet. Well it’s time to go.

That was a pretty neat cave. Kind of like Carlsbad…plus colorful lights, thousands of more people, and water. Now we’re going through three different shopping areas. Where’s the exit?

Now I’m sorry, but you’ll have to sit through a live infomercial of products made with bamboo. I’m sure you want to buy those products now. Check out the store. The exit is at the other end.

30 more minutes on the bus to the Li River. Enjoy this boat ride with two hundred other people. Smoking is allowed. Here’s your chance to practice taking photos without anybody in them. It’s possible if you push yourself to a spot on the railing and stick your camera out. Come on it’s time to go. Is that everyone?

But in all seriousness. It was a great day. Despite the rushed feel of it all. I did get to see and do a lot. I certainly slept well that night.
