Arriving by bus with no one there to meet us.
21.05.2009 - 21.05.2009
After a 3-1/2 hour bus ride that turned into a 4-1/2 hour ride we arrived in Louyang about 45
minutes late. The road was really rough, too rough to read, the driver went really super slow,
stopping for the men to take pit stops behind bushes on occasion.
We finally arrived in Louyang but Ryan Townsend, who was to meet us, was nowhere near. Mike
and I went out to the street and looked around but no Ryan. I didn't have his number so I tried
Feng who didn't answer, then Jiang-Jiang and Zhao Wong who didn't answer either. My battery
was dying fast and we were going nowhere fast.
I finally called Nate who said he would call Ryan and send me the phone number. Soon after a
woman came by and asked if we needed help, which we did. We explained slowly our situation and by this time a large crowd had gathered around us. She used her phone number to call Jiang Jiang and discussed us. She found out that Ryan had called JiangJiang asking where we were. Turned out that he was at the wrong station.
Ryan was soon on his way and rescued us.
