First stop of the day was to a temple. First thing find a taxi, of course we could not find a taxi to take all five of us. We had to show the driver a picture with the place name written in Chinese. Thank goodness for Lil Bret. He would put Lucy and I in the first taxi and then get another taxi for himself and Cheryl and Bret. Went you watch them driving on TV, that is really how they drive over here. It is really crazy. So Lucy and I are in the taxi ahead of the other, when we get a call from Lil Bret asking where we were. I look at Lucy and she looks at me and then we start to worry. About 5 minutes later we pull up to the temple and we see Lil Bret. Thank you God! Well has our luck goes the oldest temple we wanted to see was closed to view by tarps as it was being cleaned and repaired.
Second day we went to China. We started out on the subway then, we took a two hour train ride into China. The ticket says it is a bullet train but most of the time we were barely moving. It seems that the train runs on the same rails as the subway train. The train has to make way for the subway train as it is very fast.
Day starts with buffet breakfast. Then we walked into older area of town.
