i am now in Dali, an old town north of Kunming with strong Tibetan influences. the place is set within it’s old walls, between a very tall mountain range (one close by is some 4200 meters) and a lake with hills that reminds me of the Okanagan back home. the city itself is filled with old buildings and tons of ethnic people in costumes… it’s quite different from the china i have seen so far.
tomorrow, some biking around the lake, and after that, i am off to Lijiang, a city even more north of here, and apparently even prettier.
Here are some pictures from today:
