Postcard from Panzhihua

Parched hills, muddy waterJust a picture here snapped through the train window of the approach to Panzhihua. Grimy tracks, muddy water (that’s the Jinsha), and dusty, scrub brush-covered hills. This is mining country, and we’re just passing through on our way to the cool, verdant tourist country of northern Yunnan. Hopefully we don’t get stuck behind too many coal trucks en route.
