Another one of my weekly visits and this time it is the blog of Tess Karlinski who is running her fascinating tour of China again.. still in Luoyang this time for dinner in a very strange restaurant. I love this virtual tour with Tess.. by oh my not sure I could handle the bathrooms.. I think I will just sit back with my prosecco and let Tess do all the heavy lifting..
At 5:00 p.m., it was still 25 degrees Celsius when we left the Longmen Caves. All around us, the Chinese people dressed in sweaters and wool leggings. Our tour guide, Lisa, wore red sweat pants and a fleece jacket. We foreigners sported shorts or cargo pants and short-sleeved tees because we were hot. The boulevard back to the bus was again another l-o-o-o-n-g walk and the air was sticky.
Our driver turned into a pot-holed dirt road in the middle of no man’s land. What? I don’t recall buildings or much of anything that looked like civilization for a short while. We rounded a tight corner on the bumpy road and like an oasis in the desert came upon the strangest sight–at least to me. Two long buildings materialized meeting at right angles at one corner. I can only describe it as a motel—with a second story.
