How wonderful to be greeted at the train station by a friendly wave, a sign with my name on it and a trustful offer to unburden oneself of one's luggage. I felt right at home in Mengying's company and in that of her platonic friend's. She was unexpectedly generous in her sincere desire that my time in her city was filled with joyous explorations. I had some rather ambitious desires which she helped me translate into more realistic goals which made every day memorable. The time she took to personally tour me through the Temple was uplifting. I wholeheartedly recommend Menying to those who are like I was: travelling alone and without the ability to speak/read Chinese. Her home was beautiful, well appointed, comfortable and serviced by an elevator. Most (if not all) of the electrical outlets were multi-serviced to accept the prong-arrangements of different countries including North America. I enjoyed Mengying's and her friend's company, her home and the Dunhuang area so much I intend to return with my wife and family.
