On the way to Fuli Village

We took another bike ride out yesterday, this time to Fuli Village. It's supposedly a picturesque cobbled stone village. Fuli itself is nothing to rave about but on the way there, we passed a beautiful little village. It's set far away from the highway sitting quietly between the peaks. It was so amazingly tranquil. I loved it.

Unfortunately, I only had my telephoto lens with me and wasn't able to capture the beauty of it all.

Hahah...ya man! I had a Giant but you'd think the thing was going to fall apart. Everything squeaked, shifters were busted (I think I could use 12 of the 24 gears there) and I could swear if the front wheel lifted off the ground it would fall off! Guess that's what you get for 10 Yuan per day!

But you're right, at least I got on a bike again for a bit! :D

hahaha! exactly my experience! i had to pedal twice as hard to keep the bike going cuz it was so inefficient! fortunately for me in beijing, there was a bike repair guy on the side of the road every 50 meters!

sounds like you guys are having a blast!
