Well, I'd planned on posting a series of photos showing off Yangshuo's incredible beauty—and I gotta say, I loved it there the second time as much as I did the first—but the Great Firewall right now is frustrating all my attempts to do this. And I have some lovely photos too! Otherwise, I was going to talk a little about how even though it's a very touristy place, it's still awesome and lovely, and how the influx of foreigners has led to some interesting cultural fusions, and how much I love biking around in the other-worldy hills, breathing the clean air, every now and again seeing something like a pretty young woman working the fields wearing a T-shirt that says "Awesome Cutie Honey" and wondering about her life—stuff like that. But basically I didn't have much to say because I was too busy just taking it all in and going, dang, this is one of the most beautiful places on the planet, so here are some photos. Except I can't post them.

So, here are a few photos from my first trip to Yangshuo in Nov./Dec. 2009. Here too.

Right now I'm traveling in Guizhou, which has been super-interesting. I hope to write up something about the experience thus far tomorrow. Only don't count on any photos...
