The adventure (2) – a few photos from Guilin
After three nights in Hong Kong – one big international shopping opportunity – we flew to Guilin, our first stop in mainland China. Unlike the very impressive cities – Shanghai, Beijing etc. that we would see later in our trip, Guilin felt to be still part of the developing world. It was the first time that we came across electric scooters that can be a threat to pedestrians because they are so quiet.
In contrast to Hong Kong which had been pleasantly warm, Guilin was decidedly cold.
In the distance the limestone Karst hills
that are such a feature of this area

The Karst hills shrouded in mist are great
favourite for Chinese landscape artists
