      The footprint of the gods

      I have literally never experienced anything like this. This area was carved by the gods themselves and the hotel must surely have been their home-stay. If you want 5 star lodging with an authentic connection to China, this is your place. Brian Linden could not have been any more hospitable as he takes pride in more than just his hotel. He knows the place intimately and is invested in your well being as much as he is from benefiting from your business.

      The Linden Centre is a beautiful hotel with a sense of history and every modern convenience. The rooms are stylishly furnished with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. There a nice touches and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone speaks English and it is possible to arrange tours and activities on site. The bar serves excellent cocktails and has a selection of wine. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a choice between western and Chinese breakfast. I only sampled the western breakfast and enjoyed good coffee, eggs, juice and toast.

      Nothing is more powerful than an idea. Ideas spring people to action and bring the future to our doorstep. Ideas transform current problems into integrated solutions. Ideas propel humanity forward and provide us with a shared sense of purpose.

      Thirty years ago, a man by the name of Brian Linden had an idea. As he watched China modernize …

      ... with what looks like fresh cement. Numerous houses in town, known for their quaint, classic architecture, also look recently painted.

Shaxi will be a prized destination. (I know we loved ...

      ... over seriously bumpy wet ground really takes it out of you and by the time I reached Wase I was shattered. I stopped briefly in the main square which is tiny and surrounded by houses. Market stalls crammed into every inch selling bargainous cakes, fruit, meat you name it... I had a snickers on board for energy which I gulped down with a load of water.

      Only 5 minutes on from Wase I began to get stomach cramps. Blaming the snickers I carried on but soon had to stop from the ...

I lucked out again and was the only person in my dorm so had an amazing big room all to myself. Well apart from one other Chinese lady I was the only other person there.
