Wakeup call at 5.30am this morning, really need more sleep. At the airport by 8am, Plane left at 9am. All of our flights have been on time in China. I remember them always being on time in Vietnam when we were there. Wonder if that is a Communist country thing or if we have been lucky.

Happy 3rd Birthday Charlotte, looks like you had a great birthday.
For those of you wondering, Greg was a bit sore and achey today, nothing that a few drugs couldn’t ease. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better.

This will be a short blog, has been a long day. It is 10.40pm, arrived at hotel 40 mins ago. Feeling pooped and we have another long day ahead of us tomorrow.
We left the river boat at 8.30am this morning. I enjoyed our time on the boat, was relaxing and interesting watching the world go by. Think Greg thought the 3 days were a bit long.

Some movements were much easier to do than others, Deb thinks she might be a bit sore tomorrow morning, I’m still in denial. Continue reading

The start of the first full day on board the Century Sun.
Thankfully we didn’t wake much before 7am, it was a restless nights sleep but at least we slept in a little. We opened our curtains just in time to see the last of the sunrise, the light through the “fog/mist/pollution as reminiscent of a chinese painting. Continue reading

Our tour started properly today, after a bit of confusion around the meeting time, was it 8am or 9:30, no-one knows. Turns out it wasn’t 8am, so we went to breakfast instead.
