We've got company.
It’s the first day of me and my bike riding alone, heading to Lijiang.
Luckily, the road is empty—but soon I get know why.
For one full hour, if not more, I am overtaken by a never-ending stream of military forces in all their fear-inducing shapes; Hundreds of trucks carrying soldiers, huge jeeps, grotesque, high-tech tanks, and whatnots hastily rumbling towards the Tibetan regions.
Even “bizarre” fails to describe the thing.
