Once back in Dabu, I took another bus to Chayang. It was also longer than expected and I found myself drifting in and out of consciousness in the warm sun bath I enjoyed coming in from the window on my left. The undulating hills were also a little bit hypnotic. It was a nice bus ride.
When we finally got there, a teenager stopped me and asked if she could help me. She wanted to know what I wanted to see. I showed her my guidebook and she took me to all the places in the book. There was an ancient archway in front of her high school, which commemorated when someone passed the imperial examination about 400 years ago.
There was also an old mansion a rich businessman built.
And an old soviet department store, which has been upgraded, and no longer displays communist slogans.
I had a picture of some goats for Shylo and my bus friend, but they have disappeared. I don't trust my SD card in my camera anymore. I will switch back to the other one when I get home.
My bus friend helped me find a place to stay, because there were no more buses going to Meizhou that night.
I spent the afternoon wandering around the old town and eating special bamboo shoot dumplings.
