    ... In total there are 51 caves and over 20,000 statues, but don't quote me on that. This area is around 1,500 years old.

    There are two other big sites worth checking out around here that I skipped; the oldest and tallest wooden pagoda in the world, and the hanging monastery, a monastery built on wooden stilts in a cliffside. Unfortunately these two destinations are 2 hours ...

    ... definitely not small. Overall, Buddha is represented over 51,000 times, the largest being a 17 meter tall seated Buddha with a gilded
    face and blue glazed tile eyes. He is only one of many big ones. Everywhere are walls of "1,000 Buddha's", small ones about 4" or 5" tall, carved in rows, each Buddha in his own niche.

    ... on the floor by the infant (ironically that we had kicked out of our bunk earlier) we exited the train and fought off the blood sucking illegal taxi drivers (that our Chinglish friend would claim are the reason China is "developing"), and found an ethical cabby to give us a ride to our hostel. Long day but our Hostel is one of the best we've stayed at. Louise made me vow that we never do this again. I hope I can live up to that ...

    ... whiskey with a lingering aftertaste of raisins and cinnamon. Just like Christmas pudding. It comes to play a significant role in our journey over the next 3 weeks.
    I don't know what it's real name is, but if I can't find it again I will be simmering raisins and cinnamon in all my whiskey from now on. The late night of drinking was perhaps not a brilliant idea. We have a 12 hour stopover in Hohot the next day.

    From Beijing we caught our first Chinese train to Datong. The journey was only 6 hours (very short in Chinese terms!) so it was a nice easy one to get us started! Datong is one of the least attractive cities I've ever seen but we visited a couple of really cool places from there and the food was excellent! The first trip we did was to the Yungang caves, which are full of incredible Buddhist statues and artwork created 1500 years ago. Most of the art has worn away a lot over ...
