... of a network that could relay information along the wall back to Beijing. Supposedly signals would take 6 hours to travel 1000km, with a beacon made of animal fat to be used in the day (for smoke) and pitch to be used at night (for flames). An odd tourist village has sprung up around the tower - containing a zip wire and rope bridge across the canyon as well as an eclectic collection of irrelevant museum exhibits, however these haven't quite ruined it and make it a ...

Jiayuguan is completely new city, built in the 1950s to service a new steel plant and the nearby satellite launch facility - sadly strictly off limits to us, but a lot of our fellow passengers disembark there.

... Fen was very knowledgeable and I found this to be a really great treat.

We also went to the Yulin grottos, the caves built into the side of a huge riverbank that dates back to the beginning of Buddhism in China. The wall painting and statuary was out of this world.
