    ... tomorrow. The following day will be back in town, passing on a trip to a spot that sounded more like a local Disneyland type spot.

    Off to the night market for dinner. It was a fair walk and outside the west gate of the old town. Tried skewered pork bits at 2Y a stick, seasoned with pepper and curry [9Y]. They were so tasty went back for three more [6Y]. Trav found a cold beer and we shared some food with a dog who was too fearful to approach ...

    ... crops. Average speed 300 km/hr. After a big town Shijiazhuang, the landscape became more hilly, very brown and dry, and we climbed up though a number of tunnels. The train is a bit slower now- averaging just 150-160 km/hr, and the longest tunnel was about 15 mins, with only a brief gap in the middle, so we reckon about 40 km long. We emerged at Yangquanbei, which appeared to be a town about to triple in size. Alongside ...

    ... The hostel I was staying at offered trips to a couple of places outside the city. Two of these are mentioned in the lonely planet guide (underground castle and wang family mansions) but everyone I spoke to who had been on this trip (two places in the same day) said it was a waste of time.

    ... the streets of Pingyao, I slept very well.

    The beauty of Pingyao is in stark contrast to the surrounding area. This is Shanxi province and driving around the region, power generators, tall chimneys and coal mine shafts can be seen in every direction. Not only that but the roads are heavily congested with convoys of huge red trucks transporting the coal away from the mines.

    Close to Pingyao are 2 other interesting sites, ...

    ... off an amazing day. I got into the spirit of haggling at the Silk Street markets, where you can literally widdle a price down from 150 Yuan to 2- I've seen it done. There is a lot of yelling involved, really gets the adrenaline pumping! We visited a night market for dinner, and chose from a selection of snake, centipede, testicles and/or penis, seahorses and much more. This time round I stuck to the not so spine-tingling chicken & veg ...
