Journal from one month in China in 2012

This is the diary of a trip I did to China in 2012 retracing part of the Silk Road. China is fastly changing and I came across an image that was different than what I expected, and that taught me to accept that when we travel it is about the world as it is today and not a pretty image that we have built in our mind, a sort of fantasy escape into a fabled old world where we can relive history and satisfy our needs of “picturesque”.  It has been a fabulous experience for many reasons and on the side I survived it without speaking Mandarin!
