Up close and personnalSeptember 27, 2016 in China ⋅ 🌫 23 °C
Dumpling class and overnight train. We're getting really up close with the locals. A real mix, some very friendly and some outright rude, pushing and shoving in crowds.
The sun is out and it is glorious! And the views!!!! Simply stunning. You can see all the way to Beijing.
And the one thought running through my head is exactly how did they build this. Sheer cliffs on both sides and steep ascents and descents along the ridge.
My first impressions of China. . . even in the park the smog is thick and the air stale and stinky. Landscaping is obsessive with all trees planted in grids. That's Feng Shui for you. And all I want to do is grab the next flight home.
