... to have the entire truck packed and in the road by 8 am. We began our day by driving into Zhangye to get a picture of the Marco Polo statue. Marco Polo supposedly lived in the town for one year. We then continued to drive through the Northern part of Gansu province to arrive near Jiayugan. Jiayugan is the symbolic end to the Great Wall. Here we went to visit the Jiayuguan Fort.

We pass wind farms, one with well over 1000 turbines, but they do not by any means dominate the landscape. Several parallel lines of pylons march silently beside us. Frank answers questions about the figures from Chinese history who were ...

... and Marco Polo are familiar names and get most of the custom. We get back to the bus tired, hot and thirsty but very happy - our tour guide has had the foresight to procure a crate of water which resides on the bus so at least that is taken care of.

In the evening we go shopping for next day's lunch, an act which entails crossing a main road. The traffic is quite light, and moves at an orderly 40 kph. We get across perfectly safely opposite the hotel but on ...
