I have a plan.
Well, I sorta have a plan. Okay, I have an idea of a plan. Correction - I have a fair inkling of something that looks like a plan.
It goes like this:
4 days (!) on the train from Moscow to Almaty, Kazakhstan
2 days in Almaty, Kazakhstan
2 day train to Urumqi, China
From Urumqi there are a few possible options but it is looking like I will be visiting:
Xi'an to see the terracotta warriors
Chengdu to see the pandasTibet for probably 7 days and maybe a trek to Everest Base Camp
The BEST part - there is a volunteer program with the Wolong Nature Reserve where I would get to clean up panda shit! I'm SOOOOOOooooooooo pumped for that! And, you get to hold a panda...I'm kinda pumped for that.
Then Beijing. Then home :(
I'll keep you posted because, knowing me, I might end up in Australia. Oh - and no Facebook in China....wtf
