      ... 3D show in a domed theatre, explained how the man-made caves came to be created. Just excellent presentations that brought the caves to life for us, rather than being just holes in a wall. Anyway the honing out of the approximately 1000 caves, came to be from a solitary monk during the 400s, searching for his own personal “nirvana.” He built a single cave in a solid wall of earth in the Gobi Desert, near Dunhuang and the Silk Route, ...

      ... where all of the narration was in Chinese. The shuttle ride lasted only a few miles and they let us get out of the bus exactly 4 times - once each for 5, 10, 30, and 5 minutes. Definitely not enough time and no time for some hiking - I guess Chinese national parks work like Chinese assembly lines.
      In the car, the driver was fascinated with my lunch - a giant green radish and a couple carrots - he kept on offering me bread. We continued on to 3 ...
