Stay at our place and take a walk at the Escalate National Monument

This morning we were suddenly awakened by the loud sound of a four-wheeled vehicle passing through the parking lot. That sounds like all their flock. The dogs barked completely so there was no chance to sleep. Check out time is 11am so we assume around that time when we can move to our new place.

It took almost an hour for us to drive from the train station to our hotel in the city center, through a city filled with bright light. The center is full of designer labels and big brands – Louis Vuitton, Rolls Royce – Silk Road products may have changed but the market is still very active. We feel a little sad because it rains, which limits our choice to do something. We met with friends who were the same as us at the start of the trip, Erik and Kat, and after a failed attempt to go to the museum (6000 free tickets have been sold out if you believe, and paid the full price of 300 yuan, around £ 35! ), We took a wet walk around the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. Now we are starting to get fed up with all the entrance fees – in the pagoda you have to pay to go through the gate and enter the yard, and then pay again to enter the pagoda itself! At three or four pounds each time it starts to increase. Finally we decided the …
