Weather: Sunny!

Day one of hike began with a bus ride to Qiaotuo, which was about three hours.

The bus was filled with more white people than I’ve seen in a while.

Once we were there we ate and met a crazy Australian lady who put raw chicken under Corey’s peanut butter wrap thingy.

Decided to taxi up to walnut garden .. however there was a landslide, so we had to taxi halfway and private taxi the rest.

Walnut garden was a huge let down and we decided to hike on with these other backpackers named Gus, Anthony and Bec.

No english so my dodgy mandarin was handy.

The boys decided they wanted chicken so after some dodgy communication we managed to get the point across and were even shown the chicken alive! :(

Had to buy petrol for the generator so we could have power and when the chicken came out it was all bones and guts and blue!

After putting power on the whole town came to watch a DVD of chinese singing – it was weird .. the kids were cute and were so grateful for everything we gave them.

Beers were thrown down and we went to bed.
