Well we arrived in Datong during a monsoon.

10 mins after arriving the roads had turned into rivers.

Thankfully by morning it had stopped.

Our next challenge was to get ourselves to the yungang caves from Datong,a town where hardly anyone speaks English.

After not having much luck with the buses we ended up taking a taxi there 🙂 then got the bus back.

The buddah’s at the caves were amazing 🙂

We also got a quick visit to the hanging monastery another amazing place.

Then it was time to move on to Xian.
Which meant we had a 16 hour train journey to look forward too
