Day 94 - Tibet closed. Again. (China)
Yesterday there was a huge landslide on the road from Yunnan to Tibet which was our original route. 500m of road was damaged, and the rocks have caused a nearby river to flood. Some 300 vehicles were stuck and had to turn back; I haven't heard whether there were any injuries or deaths. So now it seems it probably doesn't matter what the government decides about our permits, it looks as if we won't be able to get there anyway.
Kazakhstan here we come.
