For those unfamiliar with Mandarin, here is thorough translation:
Just to make you aware, we will be offline for a few days with no access to email or the web – our global sim will be working. We have not long arrived in Kunming, chilled out for the day and are off again tomorrow to Xi’an on a sleeper train for approximately 35hrs.
After coming from SE Asia, we are shocked at the cost of everything here in China. Today we had to fork out £93 for our sleeper train – previously, we could have lived on that for a week. I suppose it’s a wakeup call we need and one that will prepare us for Oz and NZ.
Speak to you all soon.
