    After our usual jelly and Europe cake breakfast we checked out and walked to find the bus stop for Bus 3. We were pleased to find the depot, which wasn't in any of our guides or online and even better spotted the No. 3 pulling out and so made a run for it and got on!

He had no hair on his head but two bushy, long, ugly eyebrows and a grumpy looking face and annoying grumpy, whiney voice. He was part of a tour (avoid tour groups wearing red ...

Even though Datong has an illustrious history—it was the capital of the Northern Wei Dynasty for almost one hundred years in the 5th century AD, it felt to me very much like a city built on coal.
