Having travelled nearly every weekend of the last weeks my podcast series had not have a chance to catch up with all the events. Anyway I have not given up in publishing a film every once in a while.
Living in 中国 Part 5 – covers Jeanette and my adventure to Phoenix Mountain. Having nothing more than a couple of pieces of paper (to make sure we actually get the right trains) and a desire to hike mountains we did not really know where we went. All the more surprised have we been once we saw how high the mountains are. Even more evetnful: the jam-packed trains with friendly people who had no other pleasure but to feed us for nearly four hours. Pleasing highlight of the first day has for sure been the welcoming ride to a Hotel in Tiexi. We once again want to utter our thanks to the local police who even bargained the hotel prices for us.
The second day has nearly ended in a catastrophie. Nevertheless we made it to the water caves and home with really to little money in our pockets. I am not sure why, but somehow I was very confident that this would not mean the end of a great adventure but just another one to be started. Accordingly two officers of the chinese army helped us to get from the wonderful watercaves safely home.
Amazing? To be honest: just another day in china!
