They couldn't find out reservation via Agoda, but more than made up for it by placing us in one regular room and one executive room. The executive room is all you could ask for. Great layout, big TV, roomy closet with a safe and everything you could need or want.
The other room, however, was below par. Ignoring the ugly soviet era decor, the bathroom stank of raw sewage. This is not unusual for Lanzhou, since anywhere you go has whiffs of sewage and all public (and almost all private) bathrooms smell the same. But we expected more from a five star hotel. We would have changed rooms but they were full.
Besides that, the beds were very comfortable and the staff were prompt and attentive. We could always speak to someone who spoke english eventually. The breakfast buffet was above average. There is a great gym and pool. You can even get a fruit plate if you don't use the disposable bathroom products, and you can request one of a dozen different pillows so you sleep sweetly.

We stopped for an iced coffee and a packet of lime flavoured crisps and then stumbled across our next venture of the day...

... our little courtyard hotel, eating delicious pastries and drinking a considerable amount of beer priced at only 50p for a large bottle.
Whilst it's not possible to describe it as very exciting, it was a nice time for us to finally put the backpacks to one side, relax and recuperate after what had felt like a lot of travelling with a lot more journeys to follow over the next couple of days. The only thing to really note was that we saw what happens when young Chinese men drink ...
Arrived in Li Juang late in the afternoon before trekking next day. This is far more touristy. Went down to the water wheel. Was advised just to follow the river back to there is we got lost. This place is full of people and market stalls go on forever. Food street has BBQ skewers and lots of other delicacies on offer. Many tourist offices offering flights and local tours. Mcdonalds, KFC and pizzas available here. There is also a ...
... opportunity to settle in and get to know the place before work started. The week was spent cleaning the apartment, getting to know the twin tub washing machine, doing some minor furniture repair and buying a few essentials like kettle and iron. We found a couple of supermarkets and a large fresh produce market within walking distance where we can get most things. We bought chicken, pork and duck (to Owen's delight) at the market, and the man ...
