A Travellerspoint blog


sunny 32 °C

Today I was once again bolstered by the awesomeness of humanity and the lovelyness of the Chinese people as I got my bus to Guangzhou. All day little auld dears have helped me along and been super friendly and nice to me. Directing me to my bus, taking my shoes, telling me to go to the toilet before the bus starts and waking me up when it was my stop. It was just so cute.

My taxi to my hostel was fairly uneventful, although I did try to pay the taxi driver with a Hundred Yen note and he told me it was a fake! Dammit! Tried the same note (with an innocent face on me) on the hostel dude but he said it was fake too. Doh!
(note: finally got rid of it in the airport in Currency Exchange would ya believe. LOL)

There was an odd but good looking Indian dude standing outside the hostel when I arrived. I thought he worked there as he was asking me questions as I arrived, like 'You checkin in?'', ''where did you come from?'' and ''are you travelling China?''.. It's 2.30am dude - let me get to bed!!
I was glad I'd gone to the bother of booking a bed in a hostel though as there was no way I could have stayed on the bus and slept til day break, (like someone told me I could).

My last day in China was pretty uneventful actually. I walked around Guangzhou for hours. It's alright. A bit breezier than Guilin but still very humid.


I got a ferry , had a subway, chatted to odd but good-looking Indian dude, weird Chinese dude who kept going on about porn and an even odder Russian dude who I think was a few sandwiches short of a picnic. He told me my plug for my iPhone was ''handy'' and when I said I was from Ireland, he said ''ah well - opposites attract!'' Me: ''eh?'' (Runs away)

Felt glad to leave that hostel full of weirdos but a bit sad to leave China, but then happy to be going to the beach. A Rollercoaster of emotions!
