Got up early this morning as we were due to visit the Ghost City at 7 am. Hung around Reception (I use this term loosely, it is an area for people to smoke and spit!) for 2 hours but there didn't seem to be any move to go ashore. We eventually went in search of the German guy Karl and his interpreter Nick who we had met yesterday and had told us to give them a shout if we needed anything. They informed us that the trip had been postponed till this afternoon. So we duly turned up for this afternoon's trip and joined the tour group when we went ashore. The guide was giving out tickets for the visit but refused to give me any as she said I was not on her tour (this made me very unhappy!!)Eventually she called over another guide and he said we weren't on his tour either. Eventually Karl and Chinese Nick came over to help which was very nice of them. After much gesticulating the woman tour guide spent 10 minutes doing an imaginary phone call and then gave us the tickets (bizarre!!) Chinese Nick was as gob smacked as us and just walked away from her shaking his head!! Had a lovely wander around the ghost city and then it was back on the boat (again I use the term loosely it is a floating spittoon/ashtray!) for a couple of hours before we visit Zhanfei Temple. This however was not to be as the man tour guide came to tell us the trip was cancelled and gave us a refund (this bodes well for the rest of the excursions as it would seem we are now on a list).
