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 .

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 .

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  !

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 !
