      ... told you that I have changed my plans to visit North Korea. I forgot to tell you that after a few days after annuling my trip, I received an email informing me that the President of N.K. had decided to close the borders of the country to all tourists in fear of the Ebola fever. So I couldn't have gone anyway. I am leaving China Sunday for another destination. I want you to guess what that destination is. A clew? I fly out of Beijing at 11::20am ...

      Since our last update, we've travelled a further 1,140 kms to reach Lhasa. Our entry into Tibet was quite a process and shall be the subject of a future blog (once we've left the PRC).

We are in a Toyota 4 Wheel Drive and our driver and guide in front wear western clothes but the scenery going past is from another time, another place.
