Leaving Almaty early in the morning I hitch-hiked swiftly to the border with China, where I had to board a bus to cross. There was quite a contrast between the slightly chaotic Kazakh side and the shiny Chinese border post; which looked on the inside like the check-in area of an airport. Nice detail: on the Chinese side the officials got us off the bus, lined us up next to it in two lines and then marched us into the building as school children.
I was impressed by the comfort of the bus so I decided to stay on overnight to Urumqi (the regional capital).

Mooie verhalen en foto’s weer, gaaf!
Veel plezier in China!
Leuk die charmante Chinese dametjes. Mooi wat ik lees en zie. Mag ik verder op je schouder meereizen? Grtz, Pim
