Other than the persistent kids trying to open my bag, Gui Lin, the city that the Chinese are most proud of lives up to this reputation. The Chinese certainly have a way of blending water features into their cityscapes, Gui Lin is full of parks with lakes and islands, riverside walks and more beautiful bridges than I cared to count. I wonder how long it will be before I get "Laked", "Bridged" and "Pagoda'd" out.
