Long bus day today, after a 5hr 166km bus ride (extremely bumpy and slow), we made it back to Zhangye so we can catch the next bus to Jiayuguan. We made a stop over to KFC to get a taste of fast food. Both of us are a bit tired of noodles and similar tasting food, so we try to stop for some familiar foods whenever we get a chance to!
Fact: McDonald’s does not exist in the northwestern part of China, as it has not reached the GDP-per-capital required for the corporation….but not too low for KFC!! Also, KFC in China has a lot of cool stuff like corn on the cob, bubble tea, custard tarts and even burritos!
So leaving one city at 7:15am and arriving at our destination at 6:45pm, we finally checked in and headed over to the local market for some famous grilled skewers and iced cold apricot tea (delicious!).
iced cold apricot tea …i bet it tastes much better than the arizona canned ones here
