A few more pictures and a sketch from Guilin. The sketch is of an Osmanthus tree which I believe is where Guilin got it's name Guilin= 'Osmanthus forest". The Osmanthus tree is very fragrant and they make a special tea from it's flowers which is mixed with green or black tea.

The sketch was made while sitting in a coffee shop while the children worked out on the exercise machines. I can Highly recommend it if you are in Yang Shou. The Teas in the photos alas are not Osmanthus!
