We slept alright on the train, but Shylo had contracted my illness and I felt terrible about it. It was an awful flu that I wouldn't wish on anyone. We found our hotel thanks to a friendly guy with a smart phone. Then, we went to Yungang Grottoes. I had been there before, but I thought it was a really special place, so I went again. There were a few new paths and some newly renovated caves that weren't open last time.

On the bus back to town I met a friendly Chinese guy named Jimmy. He wanted to go around with us the next day to Heng Shan and the Hanging Monastery.

After another feeble shower and a nap, we went to the old city and wandered around some more, looking for Shanxi shaved noodles. We found one place, but there was a huge line. Eventually we settled on the "make your own" soup.
