Day 4: reunion in Lanzhou


Lanzhou, Gansu Province


After traveling more than 1600 kilometers (994 miles) from Beijing, we pulled into the Gansu Provincial Museum, our expedition crew meeting point. The museum is in the city of Lanzhou, in the northern Chinese province of Gansu. Tomorrow we will set out west for Xining, Qinghai Province, and purchase supplies.

This is the first message sent with our laptop, equipped with a fancy antenna to connect to the World Wide Web using local cell phone signals.

我们今天在兰州集合,准备往西宁前进。预计在后天可以到达柴达木盆地,开始期待以久的野外工作。

Great to hear that the "laptop equipped with a fancy antenna" is working.

Who are all of the members of this years expedition?
