We had some unfortunate circumstances yesterday.....but we are back baby! We had to go to Xining and speak to the foreign bureau about where the restrictions are located for foreigners. We have to change our route to avoid getting in trouble with the police....but now we have a good idea of the regions we are allowed to visit. We are now doing the tour of Qinghai Lake as we had to back track 300 km and now we are cycling the southwest route...It would have been a tragedy if we didn't get to experience the culture and scenery of the southwest route....The views are unbelievable and it feels like we are cycling through the art room of the artist formerly known as Ma Young.....Ma this would be a great place for you to do your morning tai chi routine!
I was a little upset about the events that transpired with retrieving the equipment; however, naturally there will be obstacles that we will need to overcome. We will need to work extra hard to makeup distance, but we will try our best to push through the long days we have ahead of us. Our spirits were raised quickly looking back at all the great people we have met and all the great places we have traveled through...
Every morning I am excited for the adventure that awaits us...This is my duty to share my passion because this is the way I know how to contribute to the well being of this world. We are now heading towards Golmud and it is time to see what these legs are made of....!
