Not much happened today, except for one thing: temperatures were rising, and it definitely got a bit warm on the road:
At some point, I came through a large working unit 单位 (a kind of government-owned company from the socialist era):
This one was so big it basically formed a village by itself, complete with schools and everything:
I was told that this is the board where the scores of outstanding students get posted:
I liked the working unit – a very interesting place.
These buildings are from the 60s/70s and form the second generation of public housing:
The buildings before, mainly from the 50s and early 60s, are usually small single-family houses:
I found a little dude playing around somewhere in a back alley:
And what do you know – you blink, and suddenly there’s two little dudes, and they seem to look exactly alike:
Of course they’re not alike though; the left one is the first born of the two, and he seems a bit more cautious and shy than his little brother. Ha, but who am I kidding – put the two of them together and you have unleashed complete madness and a wrecking-ball. They hardly ever stand still, and they’re paws are everywhere!
Well, I managed to evacuate myself and the cameras and get out of harm’s way, and just another two hours down the road I arrived in Luofu:
This was an interesting place as well – the whole settlement clustered around a humongous power plant (four towers in total).
I was lucky enough to get a hotel room on the fourth floor just facing this sight:
That night, I had to leave the window open because it actually got too hot in my room.
Now that was a completely new thing.
