good to read you.
I was just saying we have heard from you for a while & pop here you are! Its nice to have he next installment, though that was months ago. Where are you now? in outer Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia. Surely not at home! Chris is flying in para glider, I make jam. How tame is that? All the best Danielle

China regulations!
Did you join in the physical training/dancing in the streets? Am surprised about the restrictions for m/c on the motorways and town centres! ........... enjoy, David & Diana

yet more roadworks

Flipping eck I thought the M1 was bad!
14th September 2010

MMM - I'm pondering whether you will be going back and doing the road once its completed? I guess all tarmac would be quite dull motorbike riding, but you must have nerves of steel after some of those stretches of road and roadworks! You certainly get some interesting scenery and its fascinating how the river colours are already so different and yet all the waters are from a similar region? I thought the prostraters were at first road workmen but seeing them in action can understand how they need a bit of protection - that must be their lifetime journey. Those 'roads' are just amazing - nice to see there are some pretty flowers as well. Carol and James

Floal altimeters
Interesting how have been able to read the altitude via the plant life. Some scary roadworks on a knife edge.... David & Diana

A different Tibet
What an eye opener regards our usual concept of Tibet.............. some very interesting flora. Thanks for keeping us in the picture David & Di.

Well it does all look a bit Shangri -la-ish doesn't it? We've also decided there are some look alikes for Norway / Scandinavia, and Basque style houses! - and a bit of an English garden as you say! That muddy road looks decidedly interesting and the fan club kids are very cute!!!!!!! I guess you must feel well experienced on muddy dirt roads by now! Carol & James

Tibetian confusion!
Bewildering array of " religious " items/buildings etc............. all beautifully photographed and apparently guarded by chinese soldiers!

Yet again some wonderful photos that give a really great feel to what its like there. Ed hates to miss out on anything - as I'm sure you've know for some time! Looks like the new guest wing has been sorted - did you get a 'rain cover' too? Carol & James

Tibet as we think of it
Agree..........think of Tibet as the Lorraine mental picture......... not as the photos are portraying! Also some thought proviking comments regards " Fridge or Freedom? "........ but does it have to be a choice? Many thanks for insights into worlds far from us............ David & Diana

Couldn't get worse?
So.......... there was worse than Tajikstan! Your nerves must have been shattered after negotiating such distances of challenging terrain.. David & Diana

Hope someone hosed you down on a nice warm sunny day - you sure look dusty. Amazing scenery yet again. Somehow I thought Tibet was going to be green and lush and hilly - forgot that such high altitude precludes trees and lush vegetation. The service station looks fun - very decorative 'roof'. See you soon! Carol and James.
2nd August 2010

Omigod! I think if Max and I had been doing this we would have parted company by now. Scenery looks absolutely fantastic but what a price to pay in shattered nerves and sheer exhaustion! Big respect for getting through it.

Tibet another world!
You certainly portray Tibet as being very different........... puzzling notice on back of door! Keep coming with these gems of your travel............David & Di

Another instalment of amazing experiences and wonderful scenery, it must be incredible to set off each day to yet more of it - neat sunset too. The good karma is obviously continuing Carol and James

Sea Gulls over Serento!
Enjoyed video play and the marvels of the fast evolving new technology. Sea gulls in Tibet! ??? well you provide the photographic evidence and presumably some of the lakes are where they feed? The photos with Yaks give the impression they don't have much to eat either........ but they are there, so must have food of sorts. Style of commentary much appreciated and indicates an embryonic talent.............you will have to publish Lorraine. David & Di

Good comments
Really love the commentary and the trip. Wow, what an adventure.

Flesh eating fish!
Presumably you mustn't leave yourself at the mercy of these fish for too long.........or do the just graze dead skin? David & Diana

Fantastic Milky Way
Did you folk or the bikes suffer any altitude sickness etc? The Milky Way without any semblance of light pollution sounds brilliant ( excuse the pun )
