    ... Not a place for people uncomfortable with heights! The left end was buttressed with a stone wall 300 years ago and the rest is reinforced with slender poles but the real support system is beams drilled back into the rock by the original builders. The overall effect is quite ethereal.

    Next, on to the grottos with a stop along the way to lunch on local handcut noodles. Yum yum.

    The Yungang Caves or grottoes are a series of 252 man-made alcoves and caves carved ...

    ... more people came on until the whole central passageway was blocked up with people trying to get home for new year. Me, Mark and a friendly man next to us attempted a conversation for a while, even though he spoke no English what so ever, much to the amusement of the whole carriage.

    The next morning I met up with my guide and driver to spend a day - lunch included - visiting The Yungang Grottoes and The Hanging Monastery. There were 10 of us, including Andy who ...
