Day 24: On the road again...June 21, 2017 in China
On the metro saying goodbye to Shanghai by 6am. Managed to liven up the 9hour bullet train ride a little with cards, and by working out that we've been in transit for 107 hours (4.4 days) since we arrived in China. Some silly song writing too, but overall a very dull trip, with weather to match!
Met Damon, our friendly Fujian guide. You'd think after the long train ride we'd be fed up of traveling, but the minivan had an awesome surprise....Karaoke (KTV) and a kick ass sound system which put the Shanghai pub crawl bus to shame!
2 hours later, after travelling on a road still under construction we arrive at our 300 year old rural round house. Not what we were expecting. Much more wood than mud, plus we have beds. Reminded me of the Shakespeare's globe. We are sleeping in the tiniest of rooms on the forth floor and have decided it's haunted due to inexplicable bikini swaying and cat noises.
Ended the night with a beer, and for Emma a long awaited chicken's foot which was surprisingly spicy and more skin than meat. Goodnight from our plush mudhouse room, complete with 90's television, air con (a fan) and kettle.
