Today we headed off with about an hours drive to the Laos/China border. The road we had travelled on yesterday and was windy. We even passed a truck that we had seen on the road that had overturned coming down a hill. Assumption is brake failure and its cargo of beer was destroyed.
We arrived at the border and formalities went very quickly and both persons and cars passed through out of Laos and into China. Green, our guide for China, met us at the border and helped with formalities for our entry. Chinese visas had been obtained prior to leaving Australia.
We continued our drive to Mohan and checked into the hotel about 2pm. At 3 we all assembled and drove our cars to organise our Chinese driving licences and plates for our cars. With Greens help this was all achieved and we enjoyed the end to our day as we planned the activities for tomorrow and had our first meal in China!
