CommentsChildren playing in irrigation channel in Lianxian in 1993. [Photo by Bruce Connolly/chinadaily.com.cn]In 1993, with the highway construction underway, often only one lane was open, resulting in stop, go, forward, reverse while following earthen unpaved diversions. Where there were traffic bottlenecks entrepreneurial locals had set up food and drinks stalls!The drive did however provide an opportunity to observe the natural, seemingly timeless beauty of the area, where buffaloes pulled ploughs while small tuk-tuk carts moved between villages surrounded by golden fields of maturing rice overlooked by forested steep slopes. Particularly scenic in the setting sun we were however still a long, long way from Lianxian.The route continued higher with new tunnels avoiding high passes although where construction was not complete the old road crawled round a series of hairpin bends precariously perched above sheer drops. As the highway started loosing altitude so villages increased in frequency. We pulled up at a roadside restaurant around midnight before reaching Lianxian at 4.00am. I collapsed onto my bed, rising four hours later!Previous Page 1 23 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Next Page |||PhotoShould parents push children to take up extracurricular classes?Expat views on Chinas efforts to end povertyShould swimming be compulsory for college students?Is car sharing the future of transport?How does it feel to take the high-speed train in China?Would you like to live in a big city or small town?Is it a waste of talent to be housewives?How do foreigners view govts push against desertification?8.03K…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
