We just arrived in Xining 2-1/2 hours ago (it's a bit after 9 pm on December 14 here). It is bitterly cold. Just to run 15 feet between the bus and the hotel feels like frostbite sets in. We had a terrific, spicy meal with the SJAP general manager and some senior staff, and were told that they will slaughter 100 cattle tomorrow when we're at SJAP, and we'll also see fertilizer production (along with the new cattle houses, etc.). <br /> <br /> It is pretty exciting, considering that we were shown the raw land where these things were to be built just 15 months ago. <br /> <br /> I think the slaughter will be video recorded, but I personally will not be a witness to the actual events, nor do I intend to watch the video. Just not my cup of tea.
