Sounds great ranlee, but the my wedding anniversary is on Friday and my wife and I will probably celebrate on Saturday. We’re also considering a dinner on Friday with lots of drinks (for me anyway). I better not take any chances with plans on Saturday.


#66

I may not even get home from Friday night yet! Have Aussies in town, need to entertain! Will try though!

Look for me on Saturday on top of Wuzhishan. I’ll be going up Xiwan with a small group (me and three others). We’re meeting at Xike Station at 7 am then heading straight up. We’ll head to Star City Coffee to look as well. We’ll be going back down Xiwan to swim in that river we discussed before.


#71

See you there @marasan

If we’re not at Star City, look for us across the street at Lavazza. Sometimes Star City gets lazy and doesn’t open until 830-9AM.
