Highspeed train G87

Vi kørte fra Beijing til Xi'an med højhastighedstog - 300 km /t. Det er en ren fornøjelse, yderst bekvemt og med servering i vognene og separat spisevogn. Selv om toget kører med topfart kan man rolig have sin te stående i vindueskarmen , toget kører som roligt at der ikke kommer den mindst bevægelse i glasset. Togstammen består af 16 vogne og man kan i praksis ikke se fra den ene ende til den anden.

Rismarkerne i Guangdong - set fra toget

I Dongguang-provinsen er årets 2. udplantning af ris i gang. Markerne er dækket af vand og risen udplantes herefter. Selv i relative flade områder som her, må de enkelte marker nivelleres så overfalden er fuldstændig vandret, og vandet således ikke løber bort.

Vandreservoir vest for Xi'an

100 km vest for Xi'an ligger bjergkæderne der adskiller Shaanxi-provinsen fra Sichuan-provinsen. Vi kørte op i bjergene og så blandt andet dæmningen her (baggerst i billedet) og det kæmpe vandreservoir som var skabt bag denne. Søen leverer vand til Xi'ans 6-7 mio. indbyggere.

Et enormt boligbyggeri alle vegne

Rundt om alle Kinas millionbyer, og også de der er mindre, foregår der i disse år et boligbyggeri som er helt enormt. Alle steder skyder nye boligområder op og overalt strækker byggekranerne hals, for at overgå hinanden i opførelsen af den ene skyskraber efter den anden. Men hvem skal bo i alle disse nye boliger, og ikke mindst hvem har pengene ???

Med 300 km i timen

kørte vi fra 'fantombyen' Dawu (se under 'Words..') mod Xi'an , og passerede de imponerende bjergmassiver i den sydvestlige del af Shaanxi-provinsen. Jeg har ikke tidligere kørt så meget med tog i Kina, men har nu stor fornøjelse af at se det hele fra togets panoramavinduer.

A walk in the countryside

Der var ærlig talt ikke mange der forstod hvorfor jeg absolut ville gå de små 2 km ud til landsbyen i 35 g varme - men som sagt så gjort. Vi var et par timer i landsbyen og Qu fik snakket med mange gamle bekendte fra barndommen. På billedet Qu og hendes nevø, De ar

Morgenmad ...

på 4-stjernede hoteller kan man altid finde et par toastbrød og spejlæg, og det er så det jeg spiser .... men man kan ikke undgå at føle sig temmelig primitiv her, når kineserne samtidigt forlyster sig med en morgenmads buffe som almindeligvis består af mellem 10-20 varme retter/ ingredienser: suppe, nudler, grøntsager, kød, svampe, dumplings o.m.m. - jeg er altså bare ikke til kinesisk mad om morgenen ....når jeg kan undgå det. mine to spejlæg suppleres gerne med en crossaint på en nærliggende cafe

Boligejendomme fra 1997

ejendommene her er endnu ikke 20 år gamle, men ligner noget der er mindst 50-60 år gammelt. ejendommene planlægges nedrevet og beboerne kan herefter købe nye (dyre) lejligheder - hvilket de ikke er begejstrede for. Manglen på almindelig vedligeholdelse af boligejendomme er ubegribelig set med danske øjne!
