We finally got hold of the local pilots. Great guys, Luckily one of them is with a Chinese woman who speaks very good English. Lily was a godsend. She translated all the launch information and took Dee out for lunch while we went flying. Unfortunately I didn't have the tandem wing or Dee's solo wing with us so she had to sit this one out. Probably …

From Shangri-La we had the last bus to Dali, our first Asian sleeper bus! In China, sleeper buses are a common means of long-distance transportation. They are slightly more expensive than trains, but also a little faster, and tickets are more readily available. There have been a number of fatal crashes involving these buses in China. Fortunately we …

    Cheaper than the Jade Emu and Jade Roo. But still clean and comfortable. Its right next to the Jade roo so you can use their bar as they dont have one yet. Great staff. Seriously the most helpful people you can meet. read my blog on getting the isreali's down the mountain. Olivia and the staff were priceless.

    The Lily Pad Inn was an amazing hostel. The minute we arrived we felt so comfortable and relaxed. The staff there is amazing - so sweet and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it felt as if you were staying at an old friend's home. The food was also amazing. I've lived in China for two years and I had two of the best dishes I've eaten at this hostel. I should also mention that the cost was so affordable. Thanks for a great stay!
