We arrived in Luoyang (4 hours southwest of Beijing) via high-speed train. This is us going 300kph through the Chinese countryside! 🚄
Our first stop in Luoyang took us to old town, where street vendors are selling local delicacies and wares (as well as scorpions-on-a-stick, a la Beijing). 🦂
After entering through the main gates, the narrow streets are filled with commotion.
Some areas in old town, however, are quieter and have a nostalgic, almost bittersweet, character.
