View of mountains in central China from our flight from Wuyuan to Urumuqi
The Wuyuan to Urumuqi flight was around 4.5 hours and we then had a 20:40 flight from Urumuqi to Korlor arriving at around 21:30. We met our new driver for this section, the very amiable Mr. Lee and transferred to our hotel in Korlor, a 40 minute drive only to discover on arrival at the hotel that Tang-Jun had left his bag with around £10,000 worth of uninsured camera kit and binoculars in the car park of the airport. Fortunately, security at the airport was high and as our arrival was late in the evening and there were few people around a Police officer had spotted the bag and Tang-Jun recovered his equipment. There was no time for dinner but none of us felt like eating, mainly because it appeared that an upset stomach was taking hold of the group. I spent much of the night back and forth to the toilet!
