Last Day In Pingyao

on Wednesday, 26 May 2010

Again, we just chilled out in the hotel. It seems like a waste, but we needed a few days doing nothing. Pingyao doesn’t have much to offer anyway and most people only stay one night. As we are sitting in the hotel a band walks past with what must be over 50 cars in a procession and loads of flower arrangements and about 30 guys carrying what looks like a huge coffin. It must have been a very important persons funeral. I later do a bit of a search on Google and find out it is actually quite a regular event in Pingyao. We hang around the hotel until about 6pm before leaving to catch our train to Beijing.
