The old town of ancient Pingyao is very pretty. At times we ...

I Don't Speak the Language, I Just Eat the Oranges

... rats, fluffy duvets and pillows, and hot water to make instant noodles. Don't get me wrong, it is is still cramped and uncomfortable with a dirty squat toilet, but it doesn't take much to impress me anymore.
Pingyao, where I am now, is an ancient walled city oozing with charm. It is so cute and small I just want to put it in my pocket and take it with me. The picturesque streets are all lantern-lit, with street vendors everywhere dishing ...
