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.

9th September (General)
Met with some people today. It was great to see them but also nervewrecking. Thank you!
More problems with the apartment. Hell, hell, hell.
I walked to KFC that day, and it took about 45 minutes – an hour in the heat. I was drenched with sweat but really happy I got to finally go. I got a taxi home.
As for the problems with the apartment, well, I ...
hundreds of stalls offered up all kinds of weird and wonderful things, not all
recognizable. And for breakfast the specialties are spicy beef noodle soup and
steamed dumplings filled with barbecued pork. I’ll take that over scrambled
eggs any day!
Our three nights in Lanzhou were not all consecutive because
of the bureaucracy we had to attend to regarding splitting up our group visa

... a lot of people speaking to me about what Chinese year representations. This fascinating concept looks at your date of birth and assigns an animal to that date. The animal for which you are given then symbolizes something in life. For me my animal represented longevity and Friendliness. The Chinese people are very keen on expensive things. There is big emphasis on the man taking care of family and being the bred winner. This is not as widely seen in the western world whereby ...
... China). Its the main city in these parts and has a population of around 9 million (I think). But by this time, I was pretty much "citied" out, so next time perhaps :) The Beast was all present and accounted for and dinner was had at a local restaurant near the railway station. This was our last meal in mainland China, and offered an excellent array of local specialties. All recommended by Dragon, our trusty guide. Another 14 hours or so in the last overight train, and Hong Kong here I come!
... as she saw the poor critter skewered with tail intact. There were no shortage of other food options. Worms, sea urchins, crickets, sea horse, snake and the ever popular sheep's penis. I had never thought of eating sheep's penis. Come to think of it I had never seen one. After all they are usually hidden under a veil of urine soaked wool. It is easy to see why it's such a tasty morsel. I thought they would love the cockroaches in Sydney. Mind you they would have to skewer them ...
