Tour of Poyang Lake

November 29, 2012
Day -3 of the tour saw Eddy, Will, Dillan and Scott depart from Perth headed for Nanchang via Indonesia.

On day -2 Jake and Brett left Perth direct for Guangzhou - which should have gotten them into Nanchang about four hours after the rest.

However, things had not gone to plan for the rest of the team - Will's name had been mis-spelt on his ticket from Guangzhou to Nanchang and he wasn't allowed to board. That, and a 90 minute transit time meant that they had missed their connecting flight. On the plus side, it meant that the whole team was together for the final flight into Nanchang, arriving at 10:30PM.

The bus ride from Nanchang to Xinyu was a 90 minute drive that took two and a half hours due to the usual mix of Chinese traffic and stopping to ask for directions to the hotel. Three times.

All is well - everyone is here safe and today is a pre-race recovery day. Meals, short rides and stocking up on food for the race itself.
