I’m now in Beijing. The overnight train ride was the longest train ride I’ve ever been on, weighing in at just under 17 hours.

I’ve got internet in my (quite expensive – Â£10/day) hotel room in Beijing, so I should start putting pictures up soon and back-dating my blog with entries about what’s actually been happening in China this year.
I’ve just added 50 photos from our travels so far, so have a look here:
