David: August 2008 Archives

China Entry Delayed

| | TrackBacks (0)
Just had a call from Himalayan Kingdoms who've just had a call on the sat-phone from Steve to say that they've not been allowed into China and on to Kashgar today as planned. They may be allowed in on Monday but nothing is clear. I'd guess this is a reflection of the problems in Kashgar earlier in the week and the opening of the Olympics :- (

(and ironic seeming as I'm sat here watching the opening ceremony and wondering if they are all crowded into a bar in Kashgar watching it with the locals. )

And it doesn't look like there's much to do around Irketsham - and about 50 miles back to Sary Tash - which doesn't have much more. Perhaps they could knock off Pik Lenin whilst they're waiting!

Steve and Jeremy tried to email me a first set of photos, but uploaded the Hotel's publicity shots by mistake. Hopefully they'll have better luck next time!
