Back from Shaanxi Province China

Got back last Sunday evening from a fantastic fundraising trip to Shaanxi Province in China with Macmillan Cancer Support. Here's a few of the photos I took while I was there but more can be found here:

Everywhere we went we were welcomed by the locals. We were cycling through parts of China which are rarely visited by foreigners, so our novelty value was pretty high. So much so in fact that we were interviewed by a local tv station.

We finished the ride in the pouring rain a coal mining region, which was quite a shock to everyone involved. Video of this is to follow but the term on most people's lips at the time was, "it looks like the end of the world". It was clearly the flip side of Chinese economic development.
