Impeded by delays of which some were unintentional - a slowdown in KCR service due to an electrical malfunction at Hung Hom - while others were purely planned - stopping at a Fairwood to snack - our zealous group of travelers barely made it to the starting line, a grimy bus terminus in Shenzhen. Once seated comfortably in our sleeper seats, however, we relaxed enough to allow our trip to really begin. The 11-hour overnight journey to Yangshou city passed quickly enough thanks to a nightshade and a pair of earplugs which rendered my body so senseless as to produce instantaneous repose; and my dread of traffic calamity, intensified after my harrowing experience on the highways of Yunnan, thankfully remained deprived at least for that evening of that disaster which fuels future nightmares and tabloid headlines, and of which death is the likely, only outcome. Refreshed and ready to challenge China, I woke up to find an ethereal scene out my window.
