Shanxi: Part One

A travel blog entry by quirkybenny


The pictures uploaded out of order. I will fix the ordering later.

Day One (October 27th) (Sunday)

When I first woke up, I met Bill, owner of Munch, in my dorm lobby to pick up my order from him. He saw that I was wearing a light jacket and shorts and then warned me to bring a winter jacket with me. Bill said Shanxi was a very cold Province.

After listening to bill, I ran back to my room to get my winter jacket. Then, I ...

Datong - a reinvention

A travel blog entry by silencespeaker

Look at those yummy dumplings, noodles, soups, don’t you want to try them??? I guess she is looking after her tummy.

Next day, we catch the ...

Yunang Caves and the Hanging Monastery

A travel blog entry by mollyandrob


... a tour, getting on the No.4 and then expecting to get off at the last stop to jump on the No.3 bus. This didn’t happen. We rode the bus for 50 minutes doing a full circle of the city, it was very frustrating but at least the bus was lovely and warm. Our second attempt was much better, this time we sat at the front and awaited the bus driver to tell us when to get off. When prompted we did and then we boarded the No.3, terminating at the Yungang Caves. I ...
