We are spending the night at the foot of Emei Mountain in the Hong Zhu Hotel, a group of buildings scattered around a gorgeous park. On the desk in the room is a brochure listing the top ten things to do.
In case you’re wondering, here is the list…..
LINGER ON H.Z. HOTEL, 10 THINGS MUST BE DONE
- Bathing in hot springs
- Wandering and viewing
- Savouring and nourishing
- Riding along the forest
- Hearing the sounds of nature
- Sleeping with sweet dream
- Making contact with celebreties
- Getting close to wild creature
- Looking up at the starry sky
- Worshipping Buddha for blessing
So far, we have wandered and viewed, savoured and nourished, and heard the sounds of nature. Since the wild creatures they are referring to are monkeys, I’m quite happy not to have gotten close to them.
Soon we will be sleeping with sweet dreams.
It will be a cold sleep, however, since it is colder inside the hotel room than it was walking around outside at the top of the mountain in a foot of snow.
Time to put on all my clothes and go to bed!
