ni hao -  this keyboard has no shift so please excuse my noncaps.

made it to kunming after taking a night bus for 10 hours from kunming. i thought it was going to be a 6 hour ride in a seat but instead it was 10 hours on a small sleeper which was absolutely fabulous since i did get some sleep.

i arrived in lijiang at 8 am and went to the taxi stand as the hostel directions told me to. i asked 5 cabs to take me to the old police station, i had a map, and they all said no. so i started walking according to some directions a person told me. a mini mus stopped for me and took me to the pamba house which wasn't where i am staying but close enough. i had no idea where i was in reference to my map so i decided to stop and get some warm food and tea. while sitting there, a fellow traveler, rodny from the phillippines, stopped and got food as well. he and i had quite a pleasant conversation and ended but spending all morning and afternoon walking.
 
rodny is an amateur photographer so under his influence i ended up taking like 100 pics which i wont bore you with. needless to say, lijiang is a beautiful place albeit a bit touristy with the shops. but i saw plenty of regular people selling stuff, masons, doing laundry - pics to come later.

i ate yak at lunch and it wasn't half bad. also bought an interesting fruit that i am about to cut into. i think it might be some sort of pomegranate.

ok - other people want to use computer. will add pics later. bye bye

met some really nice people at the hostel too.

either this is the most beautiful place by far that you have visited or new photographer friend Rodney has had a fantastic influence on you!! Looked at them three times!
