      Hostile receptionist

      The general manager of the Yambu 'Grand' Hotel may be a fine man, or so we've been told, but he's a poor people manager.

      On our first night there, we had no hot water for a shower and no internet connection. The hot water was fixed by noon the next day, when we were moved to another room anyway to find an internet connection. We had to move three more times, and then the staff gave up. So we took our laptop to John's Information Cafe, two streets away, where we enjoyed a perfect wifi connection, some drinks, and their excellent information on trips around Kashgar.

      For our trip to Hotan, though, we chose the travel services of Abdul Wahab, whose brother Abdullah runs an office in the lobby of the Yambu Hotel (we were well pleased with this tour).

      When we checked out after three nights at the Yambu Hotel, a very unfriendly receptionist claimed we had never complained about anything, even though one of her colleagues had spent hours with us looking for an internet connection and several housekeeping staff had worked on the hot water issue. We had also complained about the room key not working several times, and we had complained via Elong.net (who had called the hotel manager) about the internet connection. When we pointed this out, the receptionist changed tactics and decided to ignore the hot water and room key issues, while stating the internet problem was caused by our laptop. She did not take up our offer to go to John's to prove the laptop was fine, and shouted down her manager on the phone who was trying to soothe things. When we gave up trying to get a discount for our trouble, we were stopped from leaving by another staff member who thought we had taken a picture of the receptionist. He only let us go after 20 minutes when we signalled a police officer.

      All in all, a nasty experience at a pretty crappy hotel.

      ... with wide, open spaces and environmentally conscious. This was a lovely morning where we were treated to an insight into a small aspect of the lives of some of Kashi's folk and where the language barrier didn't exist. Before heading to the airport for our six hour flight to Beijing, we had a tasty Turkish style meal at another Orda restaurant, which it seems but one of a chain.

      ... Our computers were also checked, looking through emails & photos. We drove for a short distance & our bags were scanned again, as well as having our passports checked again. We spent a fair part of the day travelling from the border to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan & I lost count of how many more checkpoints we went through & had our passports checked. We had just one full day in Tashkent, which is quite a nice city, with nice parks & ...

      ... After wandering through the spice bazaar section we started to make our way back (the long way) to pick up the laundry. After the aid of the clock face in my book, it seems we have to go back at 8pm. Always good to carry a notebook and a pen! Tomorrow we move onto a place that Odyssey have never been, staying in yurts...shame no shower, but still interesting to see whether the yurts will be different to those in ...

Moving on we saw donkeys, a huge lorry full of camels and some goats. After getting our bearings we escaped the dust and smells for a short break across the road before heading back only to find the entrance now jam packed; farmers were driving all sorts ...
