Today we said goodbye to Xi'an and we are back on our horses heading towards Qinghai. We took a day off yesterday to gather some equipment, relax and do some laundry....14 days straight in the same clothing it was time for a wash!
Today we reached a town called Yongpingxiang....which is very small, but the people are excited to have us.We went through many small cities and villages to get to our destination. The climate has significantly changed and it is becoming very dry the more west we proceed. We stopped at a few communities to drop off equipment and we were greeted with smiles from the children and youth. It is cool to go off the highway into these remote villages and surprise the people. There is so much positive energy created from our visits and it fuels our passion and strength to move forward. We had a lot of fun with everyone we met today and we are looking forward to our next destination!
Adventure is based on the unknown and each day is filled with new surprises and challenges....We never know who we are going to meet or where we are really going....That is the beauty of adventure, the uncertainty of a day's outcome...
Tomorrow we are continuing heading northwest along the 312 highway. Time to get some rest for the next adventure......Jiayou!
