Yes, a very nice representation of Guangzhou. This makes me want to make a photo spread of my own.
I'll see if I can do as well for my favorite city, Guilin. It'll have to wait until tomorrow though,
it's time for bed here in California.

Guilin is my favorite city in China because of its beauty,its water ways, its cafes, and most of all because I met my wife there.

It is her hometown and we will both retire there in a few years.

Not only is Guilin a fascinating city, there are many interesting places to visit within a short drive from there.

The Ling (sometimes called Lingqu) canal is the oldest canal in the world. It was built about 2200 years ago and connects

two major river systems, the Yangtze (to the east) and the Pearl River.

The Longsheng Rice Terraces is another manmade wonder that was built around 650 years ago. I have some photos of

both of these places in my CD homepage Albums.

The Gudong Waterfall Park is another attraction that is worth visiting. The hike to the top of all these waterfalls isn’t very

difficult and if you want, you can take a ride to the bottom on a personal railcar that you control the speed of with a brake.

If you want you can also climbup some of the waterfalls with the help of chains that are placed for the convenience of

amateur climbers.

I have only been in Guilin during the winter and spring but my wife tells me it gets pretty hot in the summertime.

That’s OK because I grew up in the Midwest of the U.S. where it gets very hot and humid during the summer months.

It rarely freezes in the winter and the spring and autumn are pleasant. Guilin receives a lot of rain, especially in late spring and early summer. Because of this there is lush plant life and many large trees in the area.

Being from the California I’m used to having a car to get around. In fact, it’s practically a necessity in California.

But in Guilin most everything is within walking distance and if you need to go further the busescome by every 5 minutes

on the busy streets and every 10-15 minutes just about everywhereelse. There are plenty of taxis too and most trips

are only 6 yuan.

It’s a perfect place to retire.

No photo spread of Guilin would be complete without a shot of The Elephant Rock.

A train is approaching and pedestrians hardly notice. I love trains.

In the U.S. train right-of-ways are almost always restricted or fenced off.

I love the way trains can be viewed up close in Guilin.

Horse statues along the Li River near the Jiefang Bridge.

This is on the way to Seven Star Park.

As you can see, Guilin is a very beautiful city.
