... when entering China....
E: After the rest of us finished a more mundane toilet visit in a local hotel (no change in that architectural format), we boarded the butruck for our spin to Hsipaw.

Dodging donkey droppings we walk on, the Jinsha flowing at the mountain range's feet and snow dribbled mountains in the distance, we purchase a couple of bananas to stock our ...
