Mayday Business Trip
The traditional May Holiday trip for the foreign experts of Gansu took us to Tianshui, the second largest city of the province, half-way between Lanzhou and Xian. The city features some Taoist and Buddhist temples, a highlight were the grottoes of Maijishan. An unusual features was the visit to a research center for improving the production of vegetables, some of their seeds are sent into space for treatment by radiations and they seem to produce plants that better resist pests, or can grow larger.
