I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane: Chengdu - Xining

As the plane was touching down in Xining, I could see the mountains by the pastures and farm houses. The view was spectacular.

Patches of farm produce by the mountains

Nice terraced farm plots

The driver which CTC Holidays had arranged to pick me had my name plague shown. Much to my amusement, my surname and middle name were misspelled.

I was asking the driver if the construction by the mountain was a railway platform and he explained in such fluent Chinese that I could not understand. It is not a railway platform, was all I gathered.

A dam with Chinese architecture

A street of shophouses

A mixture of traditional and modern houses

Great Mosque - Dongguan Qingzhen Dasi
