I got a visa ;) Lanzhou -- Wed, Jul 27, 2005 So, this was the big if of the trip that I didn't tell about yet -- my visa was only until July 31... I was told in Zhengzhou that I could get a visa in Xi'an or Lanzhou. Xi'an said no -- I could only get it in Shijiazhuang. That would have caused some problems for the schedule, I have planned for such events, but it wouldn't have been fun.
Luckily, Lanzhou came through for us. I've got my visa, I can stay, I can bike ;)
We spent the rest of the day planning our volunteer day with the volunteers at the autism school and at an incredibly slow internet bar trying to upload pictures.
