We got there by flying through Bayannur – no I’d never heard of it either. We had a couple of trips out of the city.
First we went pony riding on the grassland, but not much grass though plenty of sunflowers. The ponies had been well-trained to ignore any signals from the reins or the legs and just follow the horse in front. Also the stirrups were not adjustable, so some of us had our knees hitting our chins, while others couldn’t reach them. Bloody expensive too, but still…
We based ourselves at Yan’an in Shaanxi, which is about two hours north of Xi’an by high speed train. It’s a famous town in Communist Party history – where the Long March finished – but we didn’t see too much of that. The main point was to see the waterfall.
We hired a car/driver for a day and off we went to the Yellow River, which is brown from all the silt it picks up cutting through the loess plateau. So below you can see the river above the falls, then below the falls, then at the…Continue
For family reasons my son’s summer trip was brought forward by three weeks so I wasn’t able to make my usual plans. . I managed to rearrange my times out of the office so we could go on a brief trip to Sanjiang this week. Of course all the high speed train tickets from Shenzhen and Guangzhou had been sold, so we took the overnight sleeper to Guilin with vague plans about how to get on from there. Alas the dining/drinking car has been discontinued, so it wasn't as much fun as five years…Continue
Douglas Adams’ rules about technology:
1) Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 
Knowing all your neighbours
Snow in winter
2) Anything that’s invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can…

I just compared myself to a younger version of David Niven, so I looked him up on wiki and found:
What he said about himself when asked why he seemed so incredibly cheerful all the time: "Well, old bean, life is really so bloody awful that I feel it's my absolute duty to be chirpy and try and make everybody else happy too".
What was said about him: "I don't think his acting ever quite achieved the brilliance or the polish of his dinner-party…Continue
I have just used a phrase from Adventure – one of the great original text based computer games that I played on a Prime 550 micro in about 1981. We had that and Bomber in which you had to nuke various Russian cities, and *trek where you had to fight Klingons. I spent many happy hours in Singapore…Continue
I travelled back with Emirates through Gatwick and Dubai, because my ticket was bought by my house-buying wife - don't worry girls I paid her back - and that was the cheapest. I left the house in Worcester at 11:30am on Monday. with my daughter giving me a lift to the station. The railways worked perfectly to I got to the airport three and a half hours before scheduled take-off. Then that Virgin plane made an emergency landing and so my flight, and all others, was delayed for between two and…Continue
A week ago I didn't even know these things existed but now I've seen dozens if not hundreds. You can take pictures of yourself in front of beautiful scenery or famous sites without your nose looking like a walrus or the help of a "friend". Friends just get in the way - you have to make some sort of…Continue
