Day trip 2

This morning I noticed that my rucksack is starting to show signs of the last half year’s use. It is a lightweight rucksack and although it has a capacity of about 70 litres, it weighs only 1.4 kilos. The hip belt has loosened a bit on one side, and a couple of places the material has been weakened significantly and will have to be repaired. This should not be a big problem though as there are many skilled sewers in every middle sized town.

I took a bus back to the place I left the Great Wall last, and started walking Northwards. The terrain was nice, but was full of dry bushes that seemed to have only one purpose in life – to break off and visit my feet in the jogging shoes. I had so stop many times to empty the shoes. After 18 kilometres I found a convenient spot to get a ride back to Yulin. I guess there is one more walking day left with Yulin as a base, before I start on the stretch to Shunmo – the next town along the route. It will be a while before I can walk this last day though, as I am going to Beijing to meet a friend – John M, and also to collect the boots that my parents sent from Norway.

18 kilometres today
