In Lijiang

an old old city

We are here on our second day in the town of Lijiang. Its a pretty old place, most of the town is over 3-4 centuries old. It has been very relaxing. We got to sleep in today after 2 mornings in a row of getting up before 5am. We have just walked around town looking at the little shops, taking pictures and eating yummy food. We actually ate pizza today and i got to have some coffee!!! The hostel we are staying in is pretty cool. Today we had a traditional Na'xi dinner cooked for us by the people who work here. The Na'xi are the people who populate this area, they are an ethnic minority, and have a cool culture. It has been a fun relaxing time here.

Here are a very few pics from Kunming. I over spent my pic limit for this month so i will be up loading much more pics in the future. We are going on a crazy hike then staying in a mostly tibetian village for the next 3-4 days so there might be no posts until after then. So enjoy these pics for now. Zia jian!

Lijian sounds really nice. The bone soup sounds like caldo, the mexican veg/beef soup. We miss you. Your check as not been delivered yet. We hope you had a great time on your hike, but also stayed safe. We look forward to hearing from you when you get back. Love the pictures!
