We began our journey at 5:30 am on the big jumpy bus. We drove for about 1 to 2 hours to a place called Datong to visit the Buddhist caves. I usually thought that the caves were just like holes that were dark and cold but these caves had amazing structures and statues of Buddha, which I thought was a unique thing to see. After visiting a few, some girls and I decided to explore around, which in the end we found some rocks and waterfalls. We started to climb up the rocks, I felt like Tarzan, then noticed that there was like a pool that the waterfall made, so we jumped in. It was a unique experience also because it was pretty muddy but we still swam for a bit. Then we went back on the bus and headed for the hotel, which was a beautiful one, with bathtubs and comfy beds. For dinner we went out to an all you can eat pizza place, it was just like heaven. After eating, we all went back to the hotel and went to sleep with a happy tummy.
