Heading North from the Great Wall the first thing we encounter was a chaotic traffic jam of very large and very heavy trucks. At one junction a nice local guy had stepped into the middle of a solid mass of virtually stationary trucks and controlled the traffic, stopping the trucks to let us through. A couple of other P2P cars were glued to our rear bumper.

It’s very hot and in the solid traffic the car is starting to overheat and we are starting to cook.
