In which I visit one of the Chinese teacher’s family home
I went to Daisy’s on Sunday, which meant buying a bus ticket on my own. I went on Friday to buy the ticket for Sunday, no problem as Daisy had written down her home town. Despite the ticket lady trying to sell me a ticket for the same day, I managed to explain, in broken Chinese, that I wanted the ticket for Sunday. Sorted.
A 4 hour bus journey later (my first on my own and good practice for the probable journey I shall be making to Xi’an, though 8 hours instead of 4) I arrived in the town of Wǔ Yuán, Daisy’s home town. It’s a lot smaller than Dongsheng/Ordos and is clearly a farmer town, as no sooner did we leave it to go to Daisy’s village we hit countryside and fields.
