This is a be lated RR. Thought I post it for you interested inmates to read over the Easter holiday. I never tried to stay in China during the National Day holidays (golden week). The traffic is just horrible. Now that the holiday is over and it is the best season to visit western Sichuan. I picked up my bike in Chongqing, where I last left her there. Jialing factory took care of her and did some much need maintence work and sorted out some error code from the ECU. It took me less than a day to get to Chengdu to visit some biker friends that I haven't seen since the last big earthquake. Then I turn to Dujiangyian to start my journey of the earthquakezone, checking out the centre of the earthquake near Yingshiu and Wenchuan area. Heading north up the highland into the Tibetan region. As usual, I will let my phoyos do most of the talking: When you have friends in China and you go visit them. This is what you will get. And lots of it. That was lunch and this is dinner. Chongqing chilli hotpot is very famous and super spicy. I cried my eyes out that night and my biker friends now accepted me as true Chongqing brothers:huh Chongqing biking scene is becoming international. Here is their first foreign member, Michael Blair, an American. Again, a group photo to remember the good times we had.
