31st Day: Maiji Shan, 31 August 2008

7:30 Having breakfast in the plush mountain range of Maiji Shan between Lanzhou and the Xi’ an. The streets have been blocked by endless hordes of motionless lorries, that causes important delays. In the Chinese hinterland there is an explosion of construction development: new streets, tunnels, airlifts with background the wild nature compose a surreal setting.

16:00 Arrival and overnight stay in the Xi’ an.
