Trip Day 17 - Macau and Shenzhen, then on to Guilin

Jan 11 - Friday

Its getting harder and harder to get the troops moving in the mornings. It was after 10 before we headed out for breakfast.

We checked out of the hotel and took a taxi to the pier and left our luggage. We went for a stroll around the nearby streets.

We found a square with a playground and a coffee shop nearby. This allowed the kids to run off some excess energy.

We returned to the port and boarded the boat to Shenzhen.

Last time we came through Shenzhan I saw a Nike factory outlet shop and commented it would be good to look there for tennis gear. John insisted on trying to find it. We got a private taxi who's driver said he knew where it was. We did get to a Nike store, but I'm not sure it was the ame one. I got some tennis shoes, and a skirt at another sports clothing shop in the same building.

We continued on to the airport and flew to Guilin. It was after 10 by the time we reached our hotel, and were unable to get a second room.

Our room had a king-size bed and a small sofa, so we put Tom on the sofa and John, Jack and I shared the bed.
