May 1st is the start of the Chinese May day long weekend. Andy tells us that toll roads are free for cars on public holidays to encourage people to travel. An extra bonus for us as we are using the toll roads quite a bit at the moment. We were classed as a sedan all weekend but despite Andy's best efforts to convince toll operators that Skippy was a sedan they had to pay on some of the toll roads. Oh well, we're not old enough to get the seniors discount ...

We really loved the painting, decoration and carvings in all of the temples, ...

... which has 71 sisters on the wall of Pingyao city. We also noticed that there was a defensive tower every 40 to 60 meters. Furthermore there are 3,000 disciples on the wall.
