Getting to Macau

Today was the day to head out to my final destination, Macau. I have wanted to visit this special island ever since I got to China in 2013. I finally had the time, and I would finally see it. I had two hosts in Zhuhai, the city just across the bridge from Macau.

In the early morning, I went to the bus station to ask if there would be a bus to Zhuhai, thinking it was a long shot. Zhuhai is a whole day's travel away and I figured I'd have to switch in Guangzhou at some point. The train didn't leave until 4 p.m., and I didn't want to waste a whole day waiting for it.

Anyway, I was really lucky that a bus was about to leave for Zhuhai, almost as soon as I got there. I ran back to the hotel, checked out, packed and ran back to the station. The bus was still there and then we were on our way.

Somewhere in the middle of the trip a young woman asked the bus driver to stop and go to the bathroom. When he did, everyone else also tried to get off, but they were denied. Then suddenly, a small boy puked all over the bus driver. He had to clean himself up of course, so now everyone was entitled to an extra bathroom break. Ha. I was the only one who found the whole thing funny, I think.

When I got to Zhuhai, I found Diana had given me the wrong bus information, and I was tired and grumpy about it. She was really nice though, and we ate shrimp and Liaoning style food, which her uncle cooked. We watched Project Runway and went to bed.
