This morning we took a four and a half hours trip down the River Li from ZhuJiang to Yangshuo County. Pleasant weather on the river. After about 3 hours the boat had to run up on the river's edge as the propellers had been fouled with discarded fishing nets!

Lots of small villages along the river. Most of them only accessible by sampan. The sampans were either made out of bamboo or by the more innovative out of PVC piping!

In the evening we went to see the most amazing folkloric show we have ever seen. It featured some of the local minorities including on group where the women never cut their hair. The magnificent backdrop of limestome cliffs were occassioanlly lit by floodlights. A terrific performace even though we did not understand a word!
