2 Strollin' Tibet! During another trip we went to Tibet, baby!!! The most expensive trip I’ve had in China, the coolest trip I’ve had in China, and the most tiring trip I’ve had in China. Tibet is the most beautiful part of China that I’ve seen. We decided to take a 3-day hiking trip to the Base Camp of Mount Everest, but before that, we visited Lhasa, the capital. Lhasa was just magnificent, so different, so vibrant. The Buddhism and the history could be felt everywhere. I enjoyed everything in this city -- the palace, the old streets, the food, everything. Then we moved on to the hike. Let me say, 78km are long enough even with altitude sickness, so after the first day and a half, I passed out and decided to hitch a ride on a horse cart. It was goooooood. After we got to the summit, I tried to be brave and decided to leave the warmness of my horse cart and move on my own for the last 8km. It was worth it as we could see mount Everest for the whole trip and we saw a lot of abandoned villages around the road. The trip back to Lhasa was long, 8 hours, but the trip back home to Shanghai was even longer -- we spent 70 hours on a train. After ten VERY long hours of boredom, I decided to speak with the other passengers. Rookie mistake. They didn’t shut up for 60 hours… Our last trip was to the north, to the coldest city I’ve ever been. It’s called Harbin and is not that far from Russia. The city had the feel of a Russian city, even selling a normal bread, great ice-cream and Borsch. The architecture was all-Russian and there was also a sanctuary for Siberian tigers. Next on my list was a central Mongolian city of Hohhot, a city of one of the bloodiest histories, which I would like to learn, if only the museum had English signs. The city is known for one of the most beautiful Chinese princesses and as a city of Mongolian heritage. It was amazing, especially when we decided to buy a goat’s leg for dinner and then couldn’t move for a whole day, but it was only for $20, so if anyone wants, let’s do it? In Hohhot, we visited the old city that we soon found out was built in 2017. Nevertheless, we enjoyed it, mainly due to the performance we got from some guys running an illegal theatre in an abandoned building. These guys let us in after closing time for free, but whoever (read: Chinese people) wanted to get inside after us, had to pay approximately 200CZK as now there were foreigners (us), an extra attraction.
