Day 248 - Being cheated by the banana-merchants of Dunhuang

0 km etc.

Dunhuang is supposed to be an oasis town in the middle of the desert.

Since I have been here it has been cold and drizzling solidly. The place has a very English feel to it...

In fact I don't like Dunhuang very much - it has more than its fair share of dishonest traders. And I am unduly sensitive about the price of bananas.

On the plus side, you can always pay a visit to the Dunhuang Luminous Cup Factory.

Or take a solar-powered trip someplace.


  1. BIG SIGN for a small hut, they're not going to get all that far on the moped. I'm a betting bloke I'll put my money on Ed getting further than Moped Boy from the shed!

  2. Is it a solar powered moped?

    Will its puncture probability be the same as the petrol engined version?

    Does its efficiency increase during solar storms?

    Or has the lazy security guard ordered a pizza?
