China summary

Just arrived in California, so I can now access blogger and all things google again.
Had a fantastic time in China, it is a fascinating culture and there seemed to be a surprise around every corner.
We started in Hong Kong, then via an Austral built ferry to mainland China. Gaungzhou is a vegetable, rice and fruit growing area, and the range of produce is huge. Every kind of fruit was available, the lychees were a highlight. Ever time we turned around we ended up with more of them on the bus!
We visited a fruit and veg market, stated to be the largest in SE Asia, it runs 24/7 and in the height of the water Mellon season, 5000 tonnes of the fruit passed through every day. The produce is sourced from all over China, from in excess of 1000 suppliers.
