Tour of China
To add some more fragrances to the
sleeper bus, we directly jumped into the
bus after our hike, not having showered
before. We were told, the bus will drive
20 hours to Shangri-la, which we
expected to be exhausting, but doable.
We have to confess, our western hips just
fit in the beds. It was a freezing cold
Around midnight, the bus driver
unexpectedly decided to take a quick 8-
hous-powernap stopping the bus side of
the road in the middle of nowhere. It
became colder and colder. The windows
fogged up and started to run down the
glass while I was putting more and more
layers of clothes on. All in total we stuck
in the bus for 30 hours in a laying
position not being able to move at all.
The next day we could only laugh about
this interesting experience. Shangri-la
was awesome!! It is located, well, in the
broadest sense in the Himalaya, in Tibet.
We arrived late and ended the day with a
delicious Tibetan dinner. The next day we
went to the abbey where 300 monks live.
After discovering the oldtown we had to
leave back to Lijiang, where we stayed
another night and left Lijiang in the
afternoon to Chengdu.
