With Spring Fest comes a week off from work. It is amazing how fast the city of Guiyang is shutting down. Tomorrow after work we will be heading to Yunnan province to visit the cities of Kunming and Lijian with two other foreign teachers (Tom and Erica) and a Chinese friend (Sunny). We have an overnight train which will put us in Kunming around 6:30 am on Wed. We may be heading to Lijian that afternoon but plans are still up in the air.
Yunnan is one of the more beautiful provinces in China and we are planning to visit Leaping Tiger Gorge and possibly the Stone Forest if time allows. We are hoping to be back in Kunming on Sunday night in order to watch the Super Bowl Monday morning. Then we will catch a bus back to Guiyang and begin teaching Tuesday. We will try to take lots of pictures (assuming we can get our camera battery charged) and update you on our adventures when we get back. Xin Nian Kuai Le! (Happy New Year)
