the scenery here is incredible. ITs surprising to see the mountains pop out of no where, its flat as can be, like saskatchewan then all of a sudden opps there is a huge rock. ITs crazy. THe countrysidde people are very poor so it was kinda coolto see that. WHen we climbed moon hill there are these ladies that follow you all the way up, one lady per person. SO wehn they saw us coming they all started runnig to make sure they got a person. THey expect us to buy water or postcards or soemthing from them for escorting us up the mountain and for fanning us. My lady told me theis sob story about how she has no job and her two boys are in college and no money. WHen i told her i had no money she gave me this sad sad face that made me feel so guilty. BUt i relly had no money so i didnt get anything, i fellt awful. THen shopped a bit and bought a suitcase to take home stuff in a lil more easily. THe light show was greatr, a lil slow at times but there were 600 pople in it. THe mountains coming ouyt of the water and then all lit up was gorgeous. The first time i saw stars since i have left home was tonight during the show. IT was magnificent. THen went for a drink after and the place was horrific service. Took almost two hours for some peoples meals. And very confusing deciding on all the extra activiiteis. So tom i do a river cruise at 1130 then a show about the fishing at night. THe next day is busy, cooking class in teh morning, then caving in the afternoon. group supper and then on the train to hong kong. So busy few days then home time, which mean si only have an afternooon for shopping so i better be on the prowl. WEll goodnight.
