The goods on sale are much the same as we have been seeing elsewhere expect that now jade is commonly available. The food is is excellent and I am getting better with the chop sticks.
We arrived a lunchtime with the intention of doing an overnight stop but our driver, not surprisingly, declared he was going no further for a couple of days so we had an extra day to enjoy the sights - me I enjoyed the hostel and the electric blanket I retired to bed and stayed there for 18 hours it was lovely. I was then able to enjoy the sights of Lijiang. This is a real tourist town lots of Chinese enjoying themselves shops of all kinds, street food, restaurants and bars galore the bars sell liquor by the bottle and beer in 6 packs. The Chinese really do party when they are out for the night.
