During our trip to Xingping located in the Guangxi province of China last summer, I got a peek of what 2012 will look like right before I blink out of existence.
I wish I had had just a little more sun light, so that the pictures would have been a bit more clear. The pictures, of course, doesn’t do the scene justice – like almost every other picture I’ve ever taken in that area.
Everyone was taking pictures of the ominous clouds rolling in as night fell on the rooftop of our hostel.
And if I had a telephoto lens, this picture would have been awesome, but woe is me. This picture was taken from the balcony of our hotel in Yangshuo. As I have mentioned before, if you ever visit Yangshuo, you should stay at Riverside Retreat. It is where we have stayed both times that we have gone. It is about a 10 minute walk from the city, but the place is clean, comfortable, and the staff is really friendly. And if you don’t want to walk to town to eat, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner at reasonable prices. It is a great place to go if you want to relax and get away from the world. The views are some of the best, too. If my parents ever come to visit me in China, this is one of the places I am going to take them. If I ever win a huge sum of money, I am moving to Yangshuo, and open up my own hotel/hostel.
