... scenery and taking lots of photos. Our Rough Guide to China came in very handy at the caves when it told us about how the statues all had holes in them, they used to be covered in plaster and painted in bright colours, and a few other wee bits of information that wasn’t covered on the descriptive boards’ outsides each cave.

picknick for the day. I went to a small shop and I couldn’t believe my eyes
what the lady was selling; sex toys, vibrators, fake ******* (only 68Yuan ha
