Guilin, China Trip (Day 5)
The 5th day - That morning we went sightseeing by the Lijiang River. My dad and sister Jennifer took plenty of photos at that time. It is said that Guilin has a lot of different varities of mountains.
This tree is among one of most ancient highlights. This tree is well-known for its age. It is more than a thousand years old. It was growing wider and its branches didn't grow upwards as it had a rather short stem instead the branches also grew sideways. Somehow, as the base area of the tree wasn't big enough its branches soon connected to the ground . However, as it was still growing the branches formed roots and it seemed as if the ancient tree had connected itself to other trees.
That night, we travelled from Guilin to Guangzhou by train. At first, I thought it would be like a bullet train but we were going there by an ordinary old railway train which would take us at least 9 hours to arrive in Guangzhou. We ordered the beds for the night. This was the first time I had an experience sleeping in a train.
