Just before we headed out, we met Luke and Brittany, two Uni students from Melbourne, who were teaching English for a semester in Guangzhou. They are both really nice and had just traveled from Beijing, so gave me a map and told me what to see. Steve and I had planned on visiting the temple of eight immortals, so we said goodbye and arranged to meet up for a few drinks that evening.
The rest of the day was spent walking around the city, in the hope of finding the temple of eight immortals but to no avail (Something we do very well). The place on the map looked similar to a cemetery (Sound familiar) so we decided to give it a miss.
We found a shopping mall and with me and my beard bearing a striking resemblance to a deranged David Blaine, I decided it was time to buy a razor. It actually wasn't as easy as it sound's, and it seems to be easier to obtain a Chinese visa than buy anything from a shop in China. I found an assistant and in charade fashion, gestured that I needed a razor. She took me to the right isle but told me that I would have to obtain a ticket from another assistant. Two minutes later, I came back with my ticket and she gave me the Razors, which I then had to take back to the assistant who issued me the first ticket, in order to pay for my goods. Once paid, I was then instructed to go to another assistant to have the security tag removed prior to leaving the store! Steve also had to endure this painfully slow process when purchasing some boxer shorts, unfortunately for him, the selection of boxer shorts on offer looked as if they had been in the store since the 1980's.
In the evening, we met up with our new room mates, Thomas, Luke and Brittany for a few drinks and general chit chat.
