April 19th #chinadiary

Morning arrival in Chenghchow (Zhengzhou) "about as dirty as I ever hope to be" (after the rough and ready overnight train journey). Carl not very busy because there isn't much student work in this industrial city. Following Carl's progress across China is a reminder of just how massive a country China is - especially to somebody from UK where an overnight train journey would take me from one end of the country to the other (the internet tells me that 26 UKs can fit into China)...
