... see "7hrs 33 min”) were melted away by the warmth of the people in Datong. Everything seems so “aligned”. Of course it didn't hurt that the coats were very warm too.

As for the caves? Roughly 1500 years ago about 51,000 Buddha images were carved into the cave walls over the course of 60 years or so. In a word, the caves are ...
