Chinese New Year : Liuzhou
We got Liuzhuo , at night , after a long and an amazing day trip , from Vietnam hitchhiking . Ying , introduced us her family and she drove us to a hotel . Like my friend Mati didnt want to spend money in a hotel , we finally end our first night in China , sleeping in a car . I think , its the first time that I sleep in a car , outside Spain .
They took us for dinner , a typical noodle soup . It was so spicy ! They showed us the night market , everything with lights , because of New Year . Its similar to Christmas . They went to sleep in the hotel and we slept in the car .
In the morning , a little tourist thing in the city . Parks are very nice in Liuzhou . Liuzhuo , its an industrial city . Aproximately , 3 000 000 people . Its not very touristic place .
It was fun spending time with the girls ! But it was really hard to communicate with them . Mati and me we were laughing , when we cant understand each other . Sometimes , you lose your patient .
In the afternoon , we went to visit her family for New Year . Her mom , was very friendly . She cant speak English but she was teaching us Chinese . Our Chinese vocabulary was very basic to communicate .
They were living outkirts of the city , very humble place . The typical comunist flat , all of them are same . In South China , Turkish toilet , its a hole on the floor .
It was Horse Year , every year , they put a different animal . So , they were selling paintings with horses everywhere . I guess , it brings good luck ! We had many questions , but lack of language , left us without answer . The lights were very nice in Liuzhou ! They made wish , with a comet ! They put fire at teh bottom and fly the comet !
At midnight , there were fireworks everywhere . Shops and markets were closed . Chinese people , spend New Year with their family .
Rest of the days . The routine was breakfast , very tasty , milk with oats and bakery . At noon luch , it was always on time . After lunch , we were going for a walk to the park . Later dinner , and a night walk in the city , to see the lights .
We cooked Spanish omelette . It was hard to find the ingredients , everything was closed . Mati and me , had a couple of beers to say goodbye . We had different way in our trip .
We went to say goodbye to Mati , to the Train Station . After that , we went to the office , where the husband was working and they showed me the Tea ceremony . It was very interesting ! They boiled the water , they passed twice in the tea and after that , you can have the tea . They have tea and make noisy . So , I was doing the same . When , its not tasty any more , they change the tea ! They have tea very warm !
Last day , my Chinese family drove me , to the toll road , where I hitchhiked to Guilin . It was very sad to say goodbye to the family . But , I didnt have too much time in China ! Visa issue ! You need to follow your way …
