Hello from China!
I apologise now for any typing mistakes it is 12.20 pm and I an doing this from my I pod!
So I got to Kowloon and checked into the hotel, which is lucky I double checked before leaving as it was a new hotel! I was releived to find I had a room mate! I then took a stroll to Kowloon park and spent most of my time taking shelter from the rain, thunder, lightning! I returned a little soggy to the hotel for meeting to find there was only 4 of us on trip still better than none! They are all 18/19 making me feel a little old! We went for some dinner and some very 'shrimpy' sauce followed by a beer! (it's tricky to find gin out here).
In the morning we left for our mammoth trip 2 hours on one train followed by a 25 hour train ride... We managed to occupy ourselves with cards, UNO, one fat hen and 21's minus the alcohol, although my brain stopped working! Next dinner and 2 films watched on peoples laptops! Bed time. I rose at 9 heading for the toilet, which may I add is now all squats not my favourite, to make this better the Chinese think it's quite ok to push right in front of you when they can see you waiting! Livid I went back to bed, follows with some Reading and a little nap!
Hurrah we arrived in Kunming some much needed fresh air, one hairy scary taxi ride (I think you can do anything in these roads or any direction) to the hotel! To my suprise it's swish and the room is massive! We then went for some very tast dinner including the biggest bottle of beer you have ever seen it cost me the grand total of £2 crazy! We then walked through the city around green park lake and to a very jazzy club for warm beer (I want my gin)! After some complaining of the price we headed back to the hotel!
Enjoy your weekend! X x x
