Then my daughter emigrated and before I knew it I was applying for visas booking flights and packing my bags.
Arriving in China for my seventh visit our travel continued, we were off on the bullet train to Tianshui in Gansu province.
Our quest was to find the school where our granddaughter was found abandoned when she was just a few days old. We found the school in a poor town near Tianshui it looked particularly bleak in the torrential rain and there seemed little to do but move on.
Our next travels were to take us to some of the sights that the area is famous for.
