Tibet & Shanghai


...it has already been 5 years ago since my last visit to my second home, Shanghai.
This time Frank and I decided to go together to visit our friends over there, but also to tick off an important item of our bucket list: the new Qinghai Railway...
After a long weekend in Shanghai, we flew to Xining and took the train the next day for a 24 hour trip to Lhasa. The Chinese completed this engineering masterpiece in 2008 making it the highest railway on earth going all the way up to 5200 meters...
..exciting, exhausting and very very nice...
