Guangzhou-Last Day

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Our last full day in Guangzhou started with breakfast and packing. We had a late check-out since we had to wait for Emma Claire's visa to be issued and it couldn't be picked up until 3:30 p.m.

We spent most of the day walking in Liuhua Lake Park near the hotel and lounging by the pool with Emma Claire.

View of some of the apartments near our hotel in Guangzhou. We learned that 92% of all Chinese now live in apartments.

Restaurant on the lake in Liuhua park. It was a large park with many little lakes, an amusement park, walking trails and a museum.

At 4:15 p.m., we met Kelly in the lobby who had Emma Claire's visa and brown envelope containing all her immigration paperwork. We boarded a van and headed straight for the Guangzhou train station where we boarded a train headed for Hong Kong.

It was a two plus hour train ride. We got to see some farmer's in the fields, Shenzhen and the outskirts of Hong Kong. We also got to learn that Emma Claire sleeps in cars but not on trains or planes. She was very tired and frustrated by the time we reached Hong Kong. We got in later than we expected and when we finally made it to our hotel room it was 8:45 p.m.
