Luoping to Guanling

We headed off from the hotel at 8am…our usual time with Vulcan in the lead. Morning tea stop was at the Xingyl gorge. We walked down into the gorge for some lovely photos and then continued onto the Huangguoshu waterfall for lunch.This is the largest waterfall in China and to equate it with Niagara Falls would be appropriate.
The waterfall was interesting. of course we attracted attention as we parked and then had to catch a bus to the smaller of the waterfalls. That was a walk down and stroll around the circuit. We boarded another bus and went to the main waterfall. Lots of people there and interestingly we were the only non chinese we saw. Some wonderful Bonsais were up the tip of the hill and the walk down was interesting. We caught the escalator up from the waterfall…well worth the ride!

Arrived at the hotel about 6 and Ian and I chose to have a quiet evening in the room instead of a chinese meal out.

A wonderful day!

    Hi Ian and Lindy,

    we are Enjoying your posts. We went to this waterfall when we were in Southern China. The scenery in that province is amazing. Like you we were the only non Chinese and this continued during the whole 2 weeks we were in three provinces in southern China .

    Hope your leg is improving Ian. Great that you had a good experience accessing a doctor.

    Love Margie

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
