We left after an hour. Amy was waiting for us. Straight to Yangdi boat jetty. The cruise on River Lee was to begin from Yangdi. This was the perfect way to experience the wooing beauty of this Chinese river in the company of the mist. It was quite crowded in Yangdi jetty. There was a slight drizzle and the chill of fog. The best ambience possible for Li river boating. It was time for Amy to return. Before returning, she beckoned us near her and clicked a group selfie on her phone.
Most of the boats are small 4 seaters. Before we started, our boat driver gave us an offer. If we pay him extra cash he will drive his boat slower than normal, so that we will get more time on the river. But since we are budget travelers and we don't have a lot of cash for unforeseen circumstances, we refused and opted for the normal ride. The ride started. Soon we realized that our boat was actually going slower than other boats. Eventually we came to know that the guy's boat in fact had a damaged engine. Even though at a disadvantage, the driver trying to turn that problem to his benefit by spinning it in a different perspective. Even though he was trying to con us, he indirectly taught us a valuable lesson. If you have presence of mind, you sometimes can turn your adversities into opportunities for you !
