so...after managing to successfully get the Metro to Shenzen n meeting the frenchie it was time to board the train to Guangzhou to meet Erika....
should be easy ae.........
after gettin the ticket (which is near impossible if you aint chinese coz they speak no english) i really needed a pee...got into the cubicle n could see no toilet...only a big hole!!! AW NAWWWW!!!! after puttin sown my backpack in what i first thought was toilet water n pee...but then realised it was spit i proceeded to pee all over my ankles!!!! THANK GOD I HAD TISSUES!!!! went out to wash my hands n you think there was any soap...NO!! Again thank god for hand gel!! After feeling physically sick from the whole episode a toilet attendant walked in n done a massive hawk n spat on the floor...YOU ARE NOT BRAW!!!
I escaped to the waitin area....mega sweaty due to the heat n that feckin backpack...actually wish someone would steal it..sat down...n then i hear a proper tune fae back in the day 'Blow your Whistle - DJ Alligator' then an old chinese man got up n spat in the bin.......i actually had to burst out laughin...sittin in a crzy chinese train station with everyone starin n spittin, actually lookin like a hobo with blow your whistle blarin in the background and about to start a mega stressful journey through china when i speak no chinese...by myself...surreal but funny!!!!
Guangzhou is a s***hole...nothin else for it!! mega busy...mega hot...people tryin to bump you off left right n central...finally found Erika at her hotel....could have been an absolute disaster had i not had a map to point at!!
Next stop....NAM...'oh we will just get a train...it will be fine...no bother...piece a piss...NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!
but we managed it and the next day we were on the train t Nanning...half way to nam..met a few english guys which was sheer luck so shared a room on the train with them...we soo nearly never got the train..chinese people r not helpful!!
next stop...NAM!!! gotta b better thn china....kids s***tin in the street...chicken feet for dinner...constant pointin n staring...spitting everywhere...smoke everywhere...no sun coz of all the pollution...n they have the cheek to point a temperature gun at your head when you get in the country and sign a health declaration form but they dont have soap in the toilets....logical...i think not!!
worst part was definitely goin into tesco and findin them rakin thru frozen meat...not wrapped (nae wonder there riddled with infection) but even worse than that....was seeing a tank full of Annabel n Elspeths...FOR SALE....TO EAT!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!! BOOOAAAKKK!! so glad wee ellie is safe at home with her bubbles n friends!! ha!!
BYE BYE CHINA>>>HELLO NAM!!!
