Nee Ha! I just wanted to say that I spent 4 days in Hainan, at Haiku, and Sanya, and took a tour all around the island visiting coconut plantations and markets, and I was very impressed with the friendliness of the people, and the excellent transportation system...like highways and the lovely airport at Haiku!!
I will come again, and stay longer, it is truly a great country, and the Chinese Government is doing a great job with infrastructure and modernizing the country for the people.
Realizing that China has 1.3 Billion people, it must be an enormous task to create employment and housing, and all the facilities that are required, but I can see China is doing a great job, and I am sure that many people will come to visit, especially with China's beautiful Hotels, and places of interest.
Thank you for allowing me to see one of the most interesting countries in the world, and giving me the freedom to roam at my leisure. Good luck to China and the Olympics, and in the future.
