    ... and we are told the material has to be dyed 8 times. What is a revelation is how they achieve the various designs. A template is printed on the undyed material. It is then stitched in such a way that it appears all ruffled up. This protects the areas that should remain a natural colour and thus after dying a pattern is created. Sounds unlikely we know but we saw it with our own eyes. There is of course a commercial motive to the Bai lady's offer and we ...

    ... and huge toads!!! The main symbol of Dali is the 3 pagodas. These are amongst the oldest structures in China and are found 2km north of where I am staying. I walked up there, along the dusty main road and was faced with a loads of huge tour busses. (Although surprisingly for the whole 2 hours I spent there, I saw not a single other western tourist!

    ... We walked straight out of the bus station and were approached by a cab driver. I didn't have the address for the hostel written anywhere, but I had the number and called them for the driver to speak to. I also told him how much we would pay for the journey (I'd been advised by the hostel), and we set off to the old town. Along the journey as we came out of the new city, we finally looked up to see the most impressive mountain range I had ever seen. The old city is nestled into ...

    We arrived in Shaxi in the late afternoon. There was a crisp freshness in the air that was, without a doubt, the smell of Spring. We dropped our bags off at our inn, located just outside of town, and rushed out to capture the rich afternoon light with our cameras.

    Farmers (both men and women) worked the fields with their hoes. Occasionally children ran up to us, squealing ...
