Kung Hei Fat Choy!
This weekend, millions of Chinese will travel afar to spend their New Year in their home town. I might find myself traveling away from my home town of Hong Kong and on the road in China. Two years ago, my family and I drove straight through wealthy and industrious Guangdong province and deep into the less developed and mostly agricultural Guangxi province. There, we saw the hauntingly beautiful karst mountains along the Li River near Yangshuo and the Longsheng Rice Terraces near Guilin.
However, this blog entry isn’t about what I saw around Guilin. You can see for yourself in the photo collage I’ve provided here! Rather, I was most impressed by the 1,800 kilometers of road and expressways that took us to our destination and back home.
