"桂林山水甲天下" or guilin has the best scenery in the world - so said the governor of guilin in the 14th century. while technically i am in guizhou, but what the heck.
as china transition from being rural to urban, village life is slowly and surely making way for urban skyscrapers, technology and gentrification. traditional tea houses will soon be replaced with starbucks and communities with consumerism.
oh well, at least i got a glimpse before they all pass.
