I wake up and try to look presentable as I have a Skype call with my parents soon. Apparently they can’t wait till 8 like we agreed– 2 missed calls. Sending an email to hold on got me no where but it was great to talk to them.
The owner comes by to surprise me with breakfast. Awesome!
I meet up with my fellow German companion from yesterday to visit the Yangang Caves via public bus. Quite convenient with the bus right outside the building and the last stop at the caves. It doesn’t take that long and we pass a coal mining town which reminds me of the book I’m reading, Socialism is Great!
The whole area surrounding the caves was recently built in the last five years or so. They have a write up about it. The coal miner’s village was destroyed and now it’s a park/temple grounds. Everything is new in China.
We’re almost done. We take a break and I have a mango ice pop.
I have a few hours to kill before the train so it’s a good time to catch up on blog posts. I wanted to buy a couple steamed buns to take on the train but was feeling more lazy then hungry. In the end it’s better that I didn’t.
