... also vineyards, and at one point huge plastic greenhouses. Villages very humble with many mud brick houses and lots of horses and mules in evidence. An hour away from Datong the country became hillier, and drier and then more and more industrial and the air smoggier and smoggier.

No doubt the renos will continue, our guide was telling us that before the Olympics the area was surrounded by small villages, so they relocated them, flattened their homes and have made it into a huge tourist trap complete with little lakes and a water course on which you can take a boat to the end of the grottoes ...
