We are now about halfway through this leg – from Xi’an to Lanzhou. I had my first bout of stomach problems over the last few days, but am back to normal now. Since I didn’t really feel like blogging, here are a few updates from the last little while.
We biked across a big bridge. When I stopped on the bridge to take photos I could feel it moving around quite a bit.
We saw a couple of tall buildings. I’m not sure what the first one was, but the second one is a temple.
We went through a 1.5km long tunnel. It was pretty dark inside, but it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting.
We saw some goats and this guy selling sticky rice wrapped in leaves from the back of his bicycle.
We went to a temple known as the Great Buddha Cave. It has a few small caves with Buddhist sculptures much like the ones we saw before.
One of the caves is at the top of a chain that we climbed up (and then down).
And there is a huge cave, several stories high, with huge sculptures inside. I would guess that they were about 100 feet tall!
