  1. What bright colors! Just a quick note — it’s Yangshuo, not Yangshao :)

    • Hi Edna,

      I was confused about the spelling, looked it up on Google/Wikipedia and it said Yangshao?? *shrugs shoulders* :-)

      • Yangshao is, according to google, a Neolithic culture that existed extensively along the central Yellow River in China. Yangshuo (阳朔) is the beautiful town next to Guilin :)

        I’m sorry I just saw other travel bloggers continuing to misspell this, so I had to make the proper spelling known. It’s as grating to me as if someone spelled the capital of Australia “Sidney”.

        • I understand your frustration and thanks for correcting it. It’s one of those tricky words.
          Although to be honest, I’m from Sydney and misspellings don’t bother me. Actually they don’t ever. Maybe it comes from my teaching background where I know that spelling is important but what is more important is the person and message that lies underneath the words. Spellings absolutely do need to be corrected, but what annoys me most is when it is the first thing that people say to you. We haven’t seen you around before Edna. Perhaps it would be great to get to know each other first before picking out the small stuff.

  2. I think the pink shirt in this makes the photo. It stands in such a sharp contrast to the green around it and really makes it a striking shot. Beautiful.
