Picture of the Day: Beef Noodles

We spent the whole day traveling -- from Hong Kong to Beijing and then to Lanzhou for the start of our Silk Road tour.

When our tour guide picked us up, he said it would take an hour and a half to get to town because of traffic jams. Why?

He explained geographically Lanzhou which is in Gansu province is in the centre of China, which is why there are a lot of transport links here...

So he suggested we eat before we hit the road. Lanzhou is famous for its beef noodles and our guide took us to a place near the airport.

It's kind of like cafeteria style and since we are foreigners, we got the clean disposable chopsticks in a sealed package.

The noodles were really good, not overlooked, with a bit of a bite, and the soup base had a mala taste from the Sichuan peppercorns.
