... toilets (no western ones here) we were back on the bus for a very long drive to the ancient town of Pingyao – we thought it was around 4 hours but ended up being almost 6 – sustained by kit kats, muesli bars and some Chinese style biscuits (tasted like girl guide biscuits) and peanut brittle lollies we all slept and took in the scenery.

... greens. We met our driver outside our hotel around 2PM and he shuttled us over to a temple in the city. When we arrived, the temple was quite deserted with no tourists in sight, probably because it was raining so heavily.
