Hello, I'm back in the on-line world again (although it be from internet cafe's). I had to leave China after 2 months (was hoping for 3 months but couldn't get the 3rd extention). So instead of going all the way through China to the N-West, I had to make a difficult decision. I turned around in the central-West and I went back South, crossing the border back into Laos on the afternoon of the day which my Chinese visa expired. Because I could not access my blog while in China, I now have my work cut out for me (hundreds of pics to sift through, and a number of post updates to complete). So, please bear with me if it takes a while for me to get this blog up to date - hopefully I can do that at the internet cafe's here in Laos within the next week or 2. Yes, I have to make use of public internet, as my computer was stolen a few months ago in Thailand (for the 2nd and final time!).

For the second time on this leg of my Chinese experience, I cycled out of Chengdu city. This time I was heading South in a hurry, and I had decided to take what looked like the shortest most direct route in the direction of Yunan province and the Laos border.
