Guangxi- Along the Yulong River( 4th June 2008 )
This is the Yu Long ( 遇龙) River which is a major tributary of the famous Li River (漓江).
Along the way to the river we saw many westerners and many are living in Yangshuo (阳朔) and according to the tourist guide, most of them are married to local Chinese women. At night, West Street in Yangshuo is jam-packed with foreigners.

Looks like fishes are hard to come by today. Might as well give myself a good preening while waiting.

One of those scenes that are popular with watercolourists
The tuft of bamboo is so pleasing to the eyes
Wish I could keep my eyes fixed on this tuft of bamboo for eternity
The scenery towards the evening, it's so misty and serene
The setting sun is partially blocked by the thick mist, just alluring
Looks more like a watercolour painting instead of a photograph
Dusk is approaching and the mist is coming in

Looks like the red bull energy drink has finally come to town
Ballooning is very popular among the western tourists
