After 4 days on the road, 11 lifts with really great people, two nights in our tent next to gas stations on the way and one night in a cheap hotel, we are now in Urumqi. It was an incredible journey in which we learned a lot more about China and its people. The impression we got was surely, that hitch hicking works perfect in China, especially when you speak a bit of Chinese at least.
Today we wanted to apply for the Visa for Kazakhstan for Hudie, but the embassy was closed due to the birthday of the president. So we will go tomorrow again and hopefully we will get the visa till Friday so we can be back on the road this weekend.
We will write again before we leave, to keep you up to date.
All the best,
Hudie and Hanaffan
