Tired this morning

Guilin, China

My train arrived at dawn and i was concerned that the the hostel wouldn't be open.
I wonder out the station completely ignoring the taxi touts who are nothing like as bad as suggested in Lonely Planet! Helens directions for the hostel are a big help and i'm in my dorm for 7am, also bore the firt fruit of my YHA membership a whole 5 Yuan off!
Its quite chilly here so my jumper and jeans are back on.
Scrambled eggs for breakfast.
I'm still really tired, didnt sleep much on the bumpy train, so i'm just gonna chill out in the comfy hostel today. WIll head into Guilin this evening and tomorrow, then onto the river cruise.

Cheers Jamie, yeah i went there for my tea, and very nice it was too. I much prefer the price of beer this side of China!
