... 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.

Nearly all the houses have solar thermal units, but we don't see any photovoltaics: odd given that Chinese manufacturers dominate the market for these. Later on we are taken aback to see a large expanse of open water, but on consulting the map discover that seasonal rivers from the mountains peter out hereabouts so there are salt ...

Jiayuguan, the last station on the Great Wall

... are a bit puzzling: at one point we are exhorted to walk gracefully round the grounds and not to smear (?).

We go on another wall walk, this time in a landscape of browns. Here the construction is of compacted clay and straw, as these were the easily available materials. We climb steeply under a dome of shimmering sky and sun to the last watch-tower, looking out over a vast plain on one side: here we can see tanks on a military training area as well as a ...
