Where Navigation Gets Confusing - Huizhou, China

Where Navigation Gets Confusing - Huizhou, China

So from what my mum told me, Huizhou is the city we went to after Nanjing. But we went to a county, place, whatever, called Shexian. Within Shexian there's an area that we lived in called Huangshan. There was also something with a name called Anhui but I won't bother with further complications. But if you're really interested, well then, by all means go right ahead and search up a small question. That's all. Easy!

Just kidding. I just want you to tell me the information because i'm too confused to do the research myself. Okay i'll return back on track now. So anyways, we took a small bus ride around 4 hours from Nanjing and arrived in...umm...Huizhou? Anhui? Huangshan? Yes, we arrived in Huizhou in the evening and we were not at all disappointed with our stay. They provided us free seaseme snacks. (Sounds disgusting but they are the very essence of my love for food.)

It was a really homey place, Myka and i had our own room. The best part was the jazz and folk music that wafted through the whole house. In the afternoon it was more of Louis Armstrong, Joanna Wang and Frank Sinatra tone. Then during the night it was Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, it had more of a more sleepy vibe. The building had three floors and each of them were well designed and decorated. The third floor, you had a clear view of the town's rooftops and of the mountains behind that. Definitely Insta worthy.

The first day, we just roamed within the ancient city walls and bought some stationary to send to our friends across the planet. Wendy, the owner of the inn, was really nice and hospitable. Then we just relaxed and did some school work. Easy and comfortable. You gotta love 'round the world travels. On the other hand, we went on a boat tour. It was absolutely the worst. If you remember Zhongmao Plaza from one of my first blogs, this boat tour was 17 times worse. Loud advertising, unoriginal Chinese sellers and lots and lots of souvenirs. I'm not going into more detail because it's probably not worth it to add to more of your time. But I am however, going to write a little about why I added a photo of a dirty dog down below. If i kidnapped him, kept him until we went back to Regina, gave him a nice scrub he would be gorgeous. I named it Cinnamon because -well of course- i felt hungry. At least we had something in common!

 Cinnamon - He's dirty but he'll do❤️

So that's all for this short blog. We really didn't stay as long as we would've liked. One night I hung out with Wendy's daughter to walk around the town. She's really amazing. Other nights we got caught in rain. And most of them we just have a brilliant sleep. And that's what I plan on doing after I finish. So bye for now!

P.S. I am dreadfully sorry that my blog posting skills need tweaking. I'll try not to be the world's best procrastinator.
