|Location - Zhongwei
Weather - pleasant, only rain so far was first night of camping outside beijing.
Zhongwei - first properly none tourist town - very curious chinese, very nice town, not many attractions, but nice night market - dinner cooked in front of you. Also very funky monastary - weird rooms full of heavenly music and weird and wonderful buddhas. Cellar had been turned into Hell, with ultraviolet light and screams - house of horrors chinese style, worth going just to check it out.
Lanzhou - lots of shopping, not that badly polluted for 8th most polluted in the world. Expensive night out in our first chinese nightclub - was quite an experience, but all too tired to really make the most of it.
