 We managed to find a place to get my compressor part welded just as we were leaving Zhangye this morning - cost me all of 50p.  Just need to find the time now to put the compressor back together again now and se eif it will work.Next stop was for fuel, empty the toilets and also fill up with water.  Managed to colect quite an audience while fillig up with water.
Enoyable day up in the mountains for much of the day - up to about 12,700 feet or so.  Mindyou, Zhangye where we were last night was at about 4,000 feet i think - tonight we are camped in the carpark of a Tibetan Buddhist complex called Ta'er Si. 

Think I have been here before in 203, but will know for sure tomorrow when we go to explore the monestery itself.  There are yak butter sculptures there, which I tink are the ones that Roger remembers very well and always pulls a face at the thougt of the rancid smell emited by them.

The carpark was heaving with tour coaches when we arrived even though getting on into the evening.  Empty now.

You certainly have been up hill and down again. The caravan viewing must have created quite a stir with the locals.
