    The panorama restaurant is well worth the views of the old city walls. Good food too!

    ... to trip me! As I walk, it is obvious not many westerners wander these parts. I am used to being stared at in big cities. But in more remote areas the stares are longer, the curiosity more intense. These are stares of wonder. Wondering what I would be doing here when there are shiny store fronts and street music to entertain travellers from away.

    The noodle shop has a line that spills outside which bodes well and ...

    ... to the temple which looked unbelievable. By far the best sight we have seen in China so far. The temple is built into the side of a cliff face being held up by bamboo poles and since China are incredibly relaxed on health and safety we figured there was a high chance we could die while up there.

    ... It was definitely not for those with fear of heights! Lots of pictures again...

    On the way home, we stopped at Yingxian to see the 950 yr old Wooden Pagoda. It has a bit of a list to it now, but has survived wars, earthquakes, and weather for almost a full millennium. And it was built without nails. Some people went inside but Richard and I opted for a wander around the market and a beer in the ...

    ... crush to get through the barrier.

    We were on the top bunk of soft-sleeper class. A pair of French travellers got the bottom bunks. The duvets provided smelt strongly of smoke, to the point where I wondered if Phillippe was having a crafty fag on the bunk below. (He wasn't.) I didn't really sleep much. I was worried about missing the stop, although when it came to it, the guard woke ...
