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.

The tea tasting is interesting. For some teas ...
... had the opportunity to share with him our daughter's name and he said he was honored that we would be naming her after his own mother. Josie (soft "s") will come into a family of amazingly strong, intelligent women so while I will do my best on my end, I know she will be surrounded by others who will make her a better person too.
For reference, her current name is Song Xin Ling. Thus, we will ...
The much anticipated family visit has come and gone. It seemed like ages since we'd seen them and I couldn’t believe they were really coming. I wondered how much the grandchildren would have changed. They’d grown a bit, but after a momentary reticence they all seemed pretty much the same.
Itinerary planning involved trying to find a tricky mix of things to interest the children while still letting the adults have a good time. I would ...
... to Mao's influence in modern China. At the square, they have erected 20 metre flat screen tvs that were used to showcase the Olympic Games to those without tvs in 2008! nice touch.
After that we visited the Forbidden city, the largest and most well preserved ancient imperial palaces with 500 years worth of history! We walked for 2 hours to cover the city from North to South - beautiful red buildings, all built of ...
... and his Chinese wife, Tina whom he met just two years ago on his last trip to Tibet, we were able to tag onto their plans and secure a ride to the Yading International Youth Hostel. Tina with her ipad definitely enjoys coordinating the details. As a native she also managed to book us a discounted ride to Yading for the next day.
Based on a recommendation from another Chinese traveler in Shangri la, the five of us enjoyed a ...
