... two extremes of technology, I don't suppose the solar farm will be still there in 25 years time, let alone 2500! The guide to the railway mentioned some good scenery about an hour before Beijing, that was something of an understatement. For about 30 miles the train wound it's way down a very narrow valley with very high peaks either side, with lots of tunnels, bridges and precipitous edges, by far the most spectacular that we saw on the whole railway.

... us 'no meter' and tried to charge us three times the fare we paid to get there. Thirty minutes walking around in the sun looking for an honest taxi driver in Beijing is not good for anyone's health both mentally and physically!

We waited in the taxi queue line (yup, it's a real thing) and got to our hotel a little after 1 a.m. We checked in and headed up to our room to find that it contained no shower curtain, a hole in the wall large enough for animals to scurry in and out of, no hot water and a smell that could only be the result of sewage, smoke and nasty high school football players.

... everyday Beijing. The city was once dominated by the working class 'hutongs' – a dense web of low-rise alleyways where human activity buzzed in between the wide, featureless boulevards. Although many of the hutongs were demolished in slum clearance efforts and replaced with high-rise tower blocks, large areas of hutong remain, and we set out to find them.
