Jun 01, 2010 06:00 PM Haridwar, India

dear friends.
after a long journey I arrived to haridwar. the holy city at Ganges river. about 15 hrs incl stopover in Dubai.
anothher 3hrs waiting in Dehli heat for bus, but they decided not to leave since they coudnt find enough passengers. terrible heat. I decided to leave by taxi.
Greetings from here to all of you.



May 31, 2010 06:00 PM leaving to India

previously a difficult decision: Iran or again to Pakistan? or India?
at the end a TV report gave me the kick I needed: climbing up to the glaciers of Uttarkand, following the streams of Ganga the holy river of India



Aug 12, 2009 06:00 PM Met a Globo Member

Met Yuliang from Beijing here in Frankfurt. since he arrived late and left early we decided a midnight-sightseeing-tour till 1am.
NOTE: for everone who thinks we went to the bars: sorry, may disappointing but it was really a sightseeing at the most remarkable places.



Mar 28, 2009 09:00 PM back to Beijing

returned back from Luoyang by night train this morning. very tired. still have today and tomorrow to spend here.



Mar 26, 2009 09:00 PM Shaolin Temple

some 50 km away from Luoyang we reached the famous sight by public bus. industrial areas all along the way. at the main gate I got really disappointed. this should be the one??? we must be at the wrong place...
1000s chinese tourists... nothing than concrete made buildings! about 20 USD entrance fee. well, once here we should have at least a look: report follows.
spend the whole day in there and return back by 8pm



Mar 24, 2009 09:00 PM Huashan near Xian

amazing 2 days trip to Huashan, a pilgrimage destination for taoist. Report will follow asap when home. more than 1000 meter altitude on very short distance. spingtime makes cherries and apple trees flowering... breathtaking



Mar 21, 2009 09:00 PM Xi an - city of the Terracotta Warriors

Arrived yesterday early morning to the city. the final station of our train was Lhasa. so at least we traveled 1/4rd of the tour we wanted to do.

Tibet is closed for foreigners until end of march. Chinese authorities do not issue permits until end of the month due to the new year celebrations and Dalai Lamas birthday since the expect demonstrations again. we have seen lots of soldiers boarding the train at Beijing.

we visited the site of the terracotta warroirs today. one hour out of town by public bus. very crowded by local at foreign tourist groups. roofs covering the excavations. all looks a bit sterile and I was asking myself if those soldiers are copies or the real ones. locals can get to close and even empty water bottles could be found in the yards...

good day. evening we may spend in the famour muslim quarter. lovely market, lots of foodstalls...



Mar 19, 2009 09:00 PM china travel

after 5 amazing days in Beijing we are taking train to Xian tonight. Bicycling the chinese capitol is great fun and a good way to explore the city. hiking about ten km on the chinese great wall is recommenable too.
yesterday I had my first scorpion deepfried for dinner. interesting.
