The limestone hills at Guilin (pronounced Gway - lyn) were under the
sea two hundred million years ago and give Guilin its eerie beauty.
The highlight of our visit was a boat trip down the Li River.
Aboard, you could purchase snake wine, to drink there or take home.
We also visited the Reed Flute Cave whose caverns are illuminated with colored lights.
The first photo is a reflection in a dark pool.
The vendors outside the cave were particularly enterprising.
We stayed at the Guilin Sheraton, and it was fine,
if unremarkable. Nearby, we got a fantastic one hour foot massage. Clinton spent a single afternoon in Guilin
during his presidency, and our guide said thirty or forty people stayed at this hotel for two or three months, preparing
for his visit.
