      ... it was in this building, in 1823, that China's first draft bank was founded, eventually expanding to become a nationwide chain. Although for the majority of our visit we could not understand what was displayed, through ignorance of both Chinese characters and the machinations of commerce, it was nonetheless a fascinating visit, inasmuch for the preserved Qing character of the house. It was also, by some distance, the most densely populated museum I ...

      ... fruit and repaid the taxi fare. It seems changes had been made to our train timetable and the new arrival time hadn't been passed on. All sorted now. David later received a phone call apologising, and was informed we were being emailed the names and phone numbers of the rest of our tour guides, as well as the tour organiser's mobile, should there be any more issues.

      We escaped the hustle and bustle of Beijing feeling pretty tired and weary and jumped on the sleeper train to Pingyao. Quite a nice train journey, although compared to the Hong Kong->Beijing train, our 'hard sleeper' beds were rock solid and had zero-privacy.
