R for River Li and the Rocky Mountains



River Li (also Li Jiang 漓江) is a major river running through Guilin, China. Besides it being one of the most famous attractions for tourists, it is too, a major source of water (drinking, cooking, bathing) and livelihood (the most famous activity being Cormorant fishing) for the locals.
