What a great opportunity to reconnect with some lovely friends and to explore a beautiful country! We enjoyed 3 weeks in this amazingly beautiful country. Here's just a few of the hundreds of photographs we took:

With the busy life of teachers, the run-up to Christmas is always a blur. We still managed to find a bit of time for some fun in lovely Shanghai, though. With Rebecca working and Cora traveling, we're glad Hannah has dropped in to help us out.

Guilin and Yangshuo are stunningly beautiful. We had seen many photos of the karst landscape of this region and decided it was the perfect destination for our long weekend in November. We were not disappointed. The Reed Flute Cave in Guilin was huge and ornately decorated with stalactites, curtains and columns. The night cruise encompassing Guilin's lakes, rivers and plenty of neon lighting was lovely. The cormorant fishermen, with their trained cormorants that dive down to catch fish and deliver them to their masters, were fascinating. And the Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo was breathtaking. This is a wonderful part of China and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.
