Off into a foggy morning. Passed graveyard for Chinese who died in 2nd world war under Japanese. Rob formally waved to police at checkpoint and all three saluted back.
Discussion re which road to go - itinerary says to Sunday markets missed yesterday, or new road through mountains? Latter got drivers vote, over-ruling the photographers! No sooner onto new road than pulled up by immigration police at military checkpoint – looked at Chinese number plates, passports, but they got the papers mixed up, so all were requested to get back out of vehicles until sorted out.
On the road again to impressive engineering, but put in context by size of landslides. (Who said there's an expectation that 20% of Asian engineering will fail???) Pretty scary “Evil Knieval” ramps - if you don't stop, you launch on into the valley!! Some serious road issues/slippage – not a lot of repair work in evidence. Spectacular engineering, suspension bridges almost ignoring terrain and cost. Women working on roads, men squatting watching or supervising!!
