Touring China

Direct From Amish Country To You Fine Handcrafted Solid Wood Furniture

Flavorful sticky rice baked in bamboo stalks. washed them at home. Interesting to note that nothing that we bought in China was labeled “Made in China”! Before heading back to Guilin by motor coach, we visited a local farm. After a Chinese dinner of squid, chicken and green beans at Forrest Gump Restaurant, I kid you not, we returned to our hotel and packed for our flight to Shanghai the next day. In the morning, prior to departure, we walked along the Li River in front of our hotel, where I found a man car ving “five-color” river rocks into the shape of tiny birds, and I purchased two. As in the park in Beijing, we came upon Chinese folk exercising and dancing on the Riverwalk, and we joined in. Next we visited a tea plantation to learn how tea leaves are selected and processed and enjoyed a tea tasting during a formal Chinese tea ceremony. I had to buy the famous local Osmanthus tea, as well as Jasmine and High Mountain tea.
