Week 19

I cycled away from Urumqi and out of the city. It wasn’t long before I ended up in the middle of, what seemed like, nowhere! A couple of days which were fairly dull and the police checks did start to wear on me a bit (you can tell from the video!). I really thought They wouldn’t get to me, but after a couple of weeks of being watched, it was nice to cross the border and feel freedom! Interestingly, Urumqi is the farthest city away from the sea in the world. The farthest point is in Xinjiang region, but it’s a couple of hundred miles north of the city itself. Fun fact.

I don’t think I really show it in the video but I’ve found the Chinese culture really interesting and can’t wait to come back into China when I eventually leave Mongolia. The supermarkets are so interesting to walk round in comparison to the shops in Central Asia. Just a bigger variety of food – and a lot of food I don’t fancy touching!

I’m in Mongolia now and a bit behind on videos! The time between towns and cities now is growing. The country is vast and so days are turning into weeks! I will get round to editing and posting them but it just won’t be so up to date.
