Travel Blogs from Huangshan
At Shanghai railway station we had an hour or so wait before the gates opened and then for some inexplicable reason we all stampeded to the train. It was a very interesting experience – being the only non-Chinese in a room of hundreds of people (including being the subject of photo opportunity for some …
die Nacht war kurz , kalt und zum Glück noch kein Muskelkater in Sicht. Nach einem kurzen Packen gings weiter zum Bright Summit.
