... caves, have been my favourite thing so far in China. The detail in the thousands of Buddhas carved into the rocks was absolutely breathtaking. Even shrouded in mist and rain the whole place was beautiful. If I was to recommend anywhere
for someone visiting China Yungang Caves would be it. Easily reached from Beijing on a 7 hour sleeper train or a fast train of a couple of hours it would be the perfect day trip from the capital.

... turn signal.

An aside on driving. With China's burgeoning middle class an enormous percent of the drivers have been on the road for less than 5 years. And it shows. To get a car in Beijing you first have to have your license which means going to a driving school. The system sounds quite similar to ours with 70 hours of practice required in the learning stage.

There were many other curious passengers intently listening to ...

... be in that many selfies in a day again. And so, the tourists become the attraction. How meta. The default dinner of ordering a bunch of different dishes and sharing brotherly and sisterly finally got a nice change, as there was time for a barbecue of leg-of-lamb. Carving the succulent meat straight from the still-roasting bones made for a fine eating, and it was nice to use knife and fork again, which, when the chips are down, are supierior to chopsticks. Or, you know, even ...

Trans Mongolia, Leg 3, Ulaanbaatar to Beijing.

... is that the compartment was almost as cold last night as our Ger, so nobody got a good nights sleep. Beijing doesn't feel like the end of a journey in any way, it's really a new beginning. From here on, we have no set agenda and no timescales. We have a 30 day visa for China and then, who knows? The feeling is so liberating and relaxing, the trans Europe-Russia-Asia commute is done, what do the next 11 months hold? We'll keep you ...
