Yuanyang to Luoping

The intention was to rise early and see the sunrise over the rice fields. However…it was drizzling and foggy and at 6.00am when we should have arisen we decided some extra sleep would be in order. The fog was thick and those that did get up saw very little.
After breakfast we headed in our cars down the mountain and this was in complete fog!

This was a driving day and eventually when we got low enough the fog cleared. There were stops for morning tea and lunch. The fields of crops were fascinating and trying to work out what was planted under the sheets of black plastic kept us busy. A few photos were taken but the challenge at present is to have good enough internet to download them onto the blog. I am sure it will happen but not tonight!

Out to dinner to have “hot pot” a traditional food of the area. Wonderful soup base to which is added vegetables and  beef and then more vegetables!  A wonderful aroma and taste was superb. Top it off with a glass of wine, a rare treat in this area and our evening was complete.

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
