Photographer's Note

McDonalds reflected in a pool in Yangshuo. This wasn't here in 1999 when I last visited, & the former 5 star hotel at left (Paradeso) has fallen into disrepair & is now condemned, & overgrown with weeds. The old hotel's grounds are now a carpark. I have mixed feelings about fast food places in prime tourist areas. Perhaps a less prominent position would have been better? For a comparison of how it looked in 1999, please see the workshop. Some would say progress, others not.

The bridge & street at right are still decorated with red paper lanterns, for Chinese New Year, which fell on 22 January.

But the background karst peaks still look as lovely as ever.
