Dapeng fortress

View Living in Guangdong on baixing's travel map.

I slept as long as possible and then I went to see Dapeng Fortress. It was thronged with people and children, so I had an expensive lotus salad at a place that let me sit where I wanted. Another French cafe wouldn't let me sit on the comfortable chairs because "It was for four people". Are you kidding me? I'd rather go somewhere else than sit on your crappy plastic chairs because you are waiting for a group that will never come. How terrible. Anyway, the lotus was nice and my watermelon juice was way smaller than promised but it was nice to get out of the sun for a while.


I walked around sweating for a while, but it was too busy. So I left for the complete other side of town to try and find Guanlan Printmaking Base. Two very kind young women helped me find the bus which I must've rode for 2-3 hours. We even had the police pull us over once, and when we all got off, the ticket lady saved my seat for when we got back on. That was nice, but I realized maybe she thought I was pregnant? Oh damn, did I really get that fat this year? Then, when I got to my stop, another woman tried to help me find my second bus. She couldn't, but dug through her purse for two minutes in order to give me a flyer for a weight loss diet shake.

"You beautiful!" she exclaimed as she handed it to me. Oh damn, I guess I AM that fat this year. Guh....

I found my second bus and the driver took me to a hotel which was really nice for 168 yuan. I bought a couple papayas and yogurt to cry myself to sleep over (kidding!) but I did definitely feel less bloated after that dinner for sure :P
