Chuzhou; Long Ya Mtn. Day 9

Chuzhou, China


Today we waited out the rain by having a short lecture/ class with Robert on botanical nomenclature. After finding a store that sold boots, we were ready to hike up Longya Mountain. The rain subsided a bit, and the mountain was filled with misty clean air. Robert did his best to dig up roots and hunt for plants in his poncho. There were a good amount of common medicinal herbs growing on the mountain there. That pretty much took all day, with the evening open for free time, writing postcards and early rest.

Chuzhou; Long Ya Mtn. Day 8

Chuzhou, China


This day was pretty much a driving day. The bus drove down a mixture of never ending roads that were almost entirely used by us. You'd think that the lack of traffic would get us to Chuzhou faster, but it didn't. It was a 6 hour bus drive through a rainy country side in China. Good thing we bought that 2 hour VCD of Shaolin monks fighting to watch on the TV...

It was fun to see how the local vehicles cope with the rainy roads as well.
