River Cruise and Cormorant fishing

Today i got to sleep in, so nice! ONly slept till 8 though but still felt good to know i dint have to get up for any reason. Had a great breakfast with panckaes which are more like a huge crepe with bananas, then went to a river cruise on the Li River, beautiful scenery, loud boat, but it was nice. Still very humid here and i dont stop sweating. Clothes are constantly damp, gross. Had a lazy afternoon, then met up with a few to go for dumplings, this is when my chpstick skills failed me. I dropped a dumpling into my lil plate full of vinegar and soy sauce which splattered all over my white t-shirt. NOt pretty.... THe fishing is done my these birds called comorants the men tie a lil rope around their neck so they cant swallow the bird, they also have a rope around there foot, so the birds dip down and catch these fish teh man on the bamboo raft takes his bamboo stick and hooks the rope on the foot pulls the bird up and makes him regurgitate the fish into a basket and trhows him out agin. iT was relly neat. I got to hold the bird, but the basket smelled really bad, like vomit. WEnt shopping and wasted a whole bunch of money again. haha and i got ripped off and some stuff that i bought, everyone else got them for like 1/3 of the price, made me mad. OFf to bed, tom i do a cooking class and then caving. SHoud be a good time.
