I was so happy I would finally make it to the city today:
– new shoes!
– a shower!
– a laundry!

Then some more countryside:
…and some more of the in-between:
Then, after another curve, there it was:
The last time I had come to Lanzhou was two years ago – by train.
I remember thinking: compared to Beijing, this place seems like some hinterland.
This time, coming in on foot from the countryside, I felt totally different.
Even though in some places it seemed as if raw nature was trying to creep in…
…but the city still seemed absolutely HUGE to me:
After a while, I found a place that I had been to before:
…only it had changed quite a bit:
I walked into a beautiful glaring evening:
…and then wandered from hotel to hotel, trying to find the one perfect place to rest my ill-treated body for the next five days:
After a while, I found one.
Welcome lazy days!!
