    ... any time soon! We decided to bike the 36 kilometres back to Dali. I don't think that I've been on a bike since I biked around in Beijing in 2008. Needless to say, I have one very sore behind and my legs were tired by the end! Aside from that, the bike ride took us along Enhri Lake, through all these tiny villages and past the Three Pagodas. The day was capped with a Chinese massage. For anyone who hasn't had one, it is very painful but after you walk out, you feel ...

    Yesterday, there was an earthquake 32km away from Dali. I didn't feel it. But over 700 homes were destroyed. I woke up unable to leave my duvet. I was freezing!!!

    ... roughing it thus far, it is not as bad as I thought it would be. The first day I had bruises on my shoulders and arms as I think I am just not used to carrying the backpack. But I think I am definitely adjusting to it. Offloading and by offloading, I mean eating up all the food stuffs that my friend gave me helped too! Frankly I am looking forward to Laos right now as I think it will be a whole different experience. Maybe not so crowded with so many Chinese tourists for ...

    ... wife. He’d obviously done a bit of travelling and had made sure everything we needed was available. Nice hot showers, clean spacious rooms, wifi, a decent, cheap menu and an ice cold beer. He even had VB which we politely declined.

    Settled we ventured back into town to get our first real taste of old style China. IT was pretty nice and made for some great photos but it was super touristy and there was no way you were getting a picture without a thousand people in it. ...
