LONDON Camiseta Davinson Sanchez Mundial 2018 , Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese couple embarked on a sightseeing tour of Britain on Sunday after having completed an epic 20,000 km journey from Shanghai.

Yaoguo Chen and Jie Wu decided to make the journey as a pilgrimage to spiritual home in England of their Shanghai-built Maxus V80 van.

The couple, both aged 48, set off from Shanghai on July 1 and arrived in Birmingham on August 26.

It took the couple two years to plan their trip, which took them on a route through Mongolia, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Holland and France, and then to their destination in Great Britain's second biggest city, Birmingham.

Jie Wu said: "We quit our jobs to do this. I worked for an American company called Abbott and Yaoguo Chen was a press photographer for Shanghai Money Weekly.

"Our friends and family think we are crazy but we are very happy to have done it."

The Chinese-built vehicle has a direct link with Birmingham, based on the Maxus model line which at one time was produced at the LDV production plant in England's West Midlands.

In 2008, after a troubled period for the Birmingham-based van-maker's Russian owner, GAZ Group finally pulled the plug on LDV.

The LDV name and the firm's intellectual property rights were acquired in 2010 by the SAIC Motor Corporation Ltd. Since then, SAIC's Maxus V80 van, based on LDV's Maxus and the G10 seven-seat MPV, has been built in Shanghai.

Jie Wu added: "Owning a Maxus is the big reason we wanted to come to Birmingham. The vehicle is from Birmingham, it was designed by LDV and it has come home."

Sadly for the couple, the former LDV site now lies derelict, bought as part of plans to build the proposed HS2 (High Speed 2) rail link between Birmingham and London.

But both said they were delighted to have made it to the city where the Maxus model started its life.

"We really wanted to come to Birmingham but are also keen to see other parts of England," added Jie Wu.

After SAIC acquired the LDV name, the first Maxus product, the V80 van, was unveiled at the Auto Shanghai motor show in April 2011.

TEHRAN, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Iran is losing pistachio orchards due to a water crisis and soil salinity, Mohsen Jalalpour, head of Iran Pistachio Association, was quoted as saying Monday.

Every year between 8,000 and 12,000 hectares of Iran's pistachio orchards are lost due to the above-mentioned issues, the Financial Tribune daily quoted Jalalpour as saying.

""Land under pistachio cultivation in Iran currently amounts to close to 350,000 hectares, while during the 2000s the figure stood at more than 400,000 hectares,"" Jalalpour said.

Kerman Province in southeast Iran is the country's biggest producer of pistachio, a popular snack. The province once accounted for 70 percent of Iran's pistachio production, but it has now declined to only 30 percent due to a severe water crisis.

""Pistachio is currently cultivated in 19 provinces across the country, all of which are more or less dealing with the same problem,"" Jalalpour said.

The official also noted that about 150,000 tons of pi. George Corral Mexico Jersey   Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys   Cheap Golden Knights Jerseys   Cheap Flyers Jerseys   Cheap Flames Jerseys   Cheap Devils Jerseys   Cheap Vancouver Canucks Jerseys   Wholesale Capitals Jerseys   Wholesale St.Louis Blues Jerseys   William Carvalho Portugal Jersey
