|Hong Kong to Beijing- the long way|
Our journey in China has taken us through the Mountain roads of Yunnan and Sichuan province to Chengdu, known for having the biggest panda breeding centre in the world. After some time there, we took an overnight train to Xi’an. For the next month or so, it’s all BIG CITIES! The Mountain roads were in very poor condition, but we’re in no real rush so we thought we’d go for it. In practice, we have gotten a little tired of going 30 kilometers an hour! Fairly entertaining trips, though. If the bus had a TV, the driver either put on Kung Fu movies or Tibetan Music Videos. Lots of reading was done. The roads are terribly bumpy, winding and single lane shared with yaks, sheep and other cars. Wonderful views. Worst bathrooms.
