No Thank You

So I guess we really look like tourists here. There are touts everywhere in Guilin. It's pretty annoying because they'll just come up to you and start talking. Of course we understand none of it but they keep walking beside you and blabbing in your ear. Saying 'boo yao' (don't want) doesn't seem to deter them either. Then we tried responding in English with 'No Thank you'. For the most part, that seems to work! They'll stop with a confused look and start giggling. It's kinda weird! I think they just don't know how to react to us Chinese people speaking English to them.

We also get a lot of '... but you look Chinese' when we tell them we can't speak Chinese. I think they really get a kick out of us :)
