A reasonable place to stay, although some of the signs are a bit odd. Directions for the stairs were ' To Step ladder'.

Well we disembarked off the bullet train at 10pm Wednesday evening to a cold and windy Zhengzhou (an unbelievable huge modern train station) and were met by our next guide Charlie, a 62 year old who had previously been a history teacher in the 70s and then became a travel guide which he has done for over 30 years. We liked Charlie - he was very efficient, very knowledgeable and told us to "leg it" a number of times as we had ...
WARNING: This is gonna sound whiny and entitled, but until you have experienced expat life in Asia you can't understand the struggle. It's real, yo.
This whole debacle all started when I got roped into doing English Corner in exchange for tasty dinners. I don't have a problem doing conversation classes in exchange for food, no way.

Japan did retreat but it was worse than dropping a bomb on the ...
At 5am we were up and left our farmhouse at 5.30. We got the minibuses back to Xi'an and then two more local buses to Shao Lin which took about 6/7 hours. Such journeys feel like a piece of cake now after some of the crazy long journeys I've done. It gives me a chance to update my blog too so it's not all wasted time. If you want to travel over 5000km over China in 27 days I guess you've got to he prepared for a lot of travelling. Once ...
