5. Back to Xining

Posted by on Jul 4, 2012 in 2012 07 Qinghai | Comments Off

120km.

Woke up with the normal hungover feeling, some truck horns and morning call to prayer (Hui muslim part of the world). some mutton soup, bread and coffee and off again. first 2km was nice and relaxed and then 1000m climb. Think body getting alimatized as dealing with hard climb at 4000m was ok. breathtaking views of the areas us foreigner tourists are not allowed to visit.  then a long sharp downhill. Another filling of noodles for lunch, actually getting much better and then 60km odd into Xining (capital of the province / where started). Enjoying a pizza and bottle of red wine in a xining italian restaurant. one cannot complain.
