... local attractions. We joined our tour group of four Chinese, who after being a little standoffish turned, out to be really kind and incredibly helpful as they took us under their collective wing for the day.

This was good fun to look around, however I ...

... foreigner. The Chinese are terrific.

I ended up getting a heat rash on my arms (you wouldn;t believe the degree of wretchedness I have delved into since then). A man on the train tugged my hair to wake me up at Pingyao. I was completely out of it and just sort of looking around when 30 secs later, the conductor came at me saying quickly quickly. I was dumped off ...

... I preferred the Hall of Bringing Babies Deity. She seemed to bring them by the basket load, and I wondered if I'd already had a visit from her.

The next day we took another long bus ride to Taiyuan. It was hell. That was pretty much the whole day, sitting on a bus, a very very dirty bus with broken seats, and garbage everywhere. It was so disgusting it was funny...in an "I'm-going-to-go-crazy" kind of way. We watched people throw banana peels on the floor, and spit out sunflower seeds everywhere. We were entertained by some B-grade kung fu video on the bus ...

    This quiet little hideaway offers an ancient setting with large "kung" beds and excellent food. The staff are incredible and help with everything from menus to getting a very difficult train ticket. The walled patio is a great private place to enjoy a meal outdoors on a sunny day!
