”the last heaven before the real adventure begins”

13/10/11

Today is the first day of my whole trip where it has rained. What was supposed to be a 7 hr bus ride turned into a 10 hr bus ride from Chengdu to Kangding. Nevertheless I made it =D

After being in Chengdu for so long, it felt so good getting off the bus and being in a different town. Kangding is the place where you are first exposed to the Tibetan world. Along the streets you see a few Tibetan women with holding beads with plaited hair, colourful clothes and dresses as well as men donning one shouldered robes.

Once I arrived, I realised that there’s a bit to explore here and wished I had more time in Western Sichuan. I dropped my bags at the Zhilam Hostel which was super nice. Owned by an American couple, the place was clean and cozy.

    Fark it must be freezing by now. When i was in Wulumuqi last week it was already freezing just before the snow started falling. I see ice on the side of the road, i hope your all layered up.
    I really wanted to go see Tibet but didnt end up getting to go. Cant wait to see some more photos of the place =]
