The Mouth of China

... distance. The road climbs up the lower slopes of the Tibetan Plateau as we get closer to Lanzhou, one of the most polluted industrial towns in China. They seem to be strip mining the whole valley. Buddhist Stupas and graceful Chinese pavilions fight the power pylons for a hillside spot. Lanzhou is on the Yellow River,the river carries a heavy load of sandstone silt and definitely lives up to its name. We are caught up in the first traffic ...

... Aurel Stein's expedition reports and Yasushi Inoue's historical novel set in the 10th century. The reality is an elegant well-laid out modern city whose night life is renowned.

For history of the place visit www

Our next foray into local Chinese history took us to JiaYuGuan fort which was the main reaaon mum wanted to visit her. It was very impressive in deed but just a shame that we came all this way for it to be under renovation.
