My work is sending me to Lanzhou China in a couple of weeks. I’ve never been there, but have been reading up what I can. If any of you gentle readers have "been there, done that, bought the T-shirt" I’d appreciate any suggestions you might have for things to do, things to watch out for, and the good, the bad and the ugly.
I’m going to be bringing my camera with me. Do you think I risk losing my 100-400 (to theft) if bring it with me?
I’m a little concerned because the city is so much further north that my little Cantonese knowledge will be useless. It’s going to be a LOT of hand waving and pointing. I don’t like not being able to communicate.
Thoughts and ideas welcomed!
