Datong

Oct 2009
Datong is a quite poor city from the Shanxi province. This 1.200.000 people city is ugly and dirty and the night train needed 6 or 7 hours to cover the 200 or 300 km that separates it from Beijing. The reason to go there was we wanted to visit the suspended monastery and the Yungang grottoes. The picture above shows the view from my bedroom in the hotel we used.
From tomorrow, I'll start showing picture from the suspended monastery, Xuangongsi, wich is amazing !
Datong est une ville plutôt pauvre de la province du Shanxi. Cette cité de 1.200.000 habitants est moche et sale et le train de nuit a besoin de 6 ou 7 heures pour en couvrir les 200 ou 300 km qui la sépare de Pekin. La raison pour y aller était que nous voulions visiter le monastère suspendu et les grottes de Yungang. La photo ci-dessus montre la vue que j'avais depuis ma chambre d'hotel.
A partir de demain, je commencerais à publier des photos de Xuankongsi, le temple suspendu qui est impressionant !
