Souvenir Shopping In Pingyao

on Tuesday, 25 May 2010

Today we had planned to look around the city and see some more of the sites inside on the bicycles. We didn’t get going until about 11am and then ended up just having a short cycle round town, I bought a few souvenirs, but it was harder work than normal and some of the things I wanted seemed too expensive. We went back to the hostel with the intention of going back out on the bikes, but it didn’t happen and we spent the rest of the day chilling out. I spoke to Bob, the manager and he said it was really easy to just stay and teach English if we liked and even said he could recommend us. He also me to write a sign in English for him offering half price beer, which was a bit annoying as we were spending a pound a bottle and now it was only 50 pence. So the rest of the night we made the most of the promotion.
