Exploring DaLi to Lijiang

on the 13th we took a day tour around this lake htat i dont know the name of off hand, first took a bus to this lil village town area and walked thorugh a local market, which was quite an experience。 This lady on our tour was bombarded and they wouldnt leave her alone, they followed her the whole time we were there and never even asked me, if they did i was quite rude and shook my head and said ’bou yuo‘ which means “i dont want it”, they didnt like me。 in this market was much raw meat, and i mean dirty raw, intestines splattered all over tables and one thing that scared me and evan was the random pig heads, and huge pig head, seen many htings i was not fond of。 WEnt to a fishing village where we got to see the local Bai people, the ladies area ll dressed in blue with colorful head dressing things。 It was also a good day to go, the day before tomb sweeping day, so there was a ceremony that the women were performing that we got to witness。 THey were all sitting together in a square and singing and hitting bells。 The old ladies are so beautiful, and jsut hte cutest people i have ever seen。 GOt in trouble by one lady, not sure why but she came up to me nad was hand gesturing and talking then hit me on the hip as she walked by。 No idea what i did。 After luch we biked about 20 km or so。 Along the lake, and up a mountain, kinda difficult but well worth the view。 Oh ya and i got tooken out by a donkey and its load, we were pulled over waitng for everyone when these donkeys were coming and i was taking a picture then it just knew that it was to get on that trail right in front of me, i didnt even see it coming till the straw and wood sticking about 3 ft out beside it wiped me and my bike, pushing us nearly down the side of this cliff。 It was quite funny for everyone watching。 All in all a very good day。 Then today we drove to Lijiang, another really touristy town。 Full of cobblestone streets and lil alleys, very easy to get lost, but beautiful place to do it。 Shope around every corner and a rivers to follow everywhere。 Finally we found this lil cafe that has internte and supposed to have good breakfast, will find out in the mornign。 The drive here was absolutley amazing like usual。 Sometiems the driving is my favorite part, see som uch country side。 Tom is a free day to explore, then hiking tiger leaping gorge the day after。 Sorry for such a long one but wanted to be updated。。

hello baby brit,wow what a few days you have had.Do not lose that camera what ever you do we want to see all the pictures. that donkey could have wiped you and the camera out.Hope you didnt get hurt only your pride.Whats with the lady maybe she thought you should have bought something from her,funny story anyway now not at the time i guess. So happy the phone card worked great,hope it isnt too expensive for you.Seen the horses today they come to the corral to the watering bowls,but i was up on the front end loader bucket so did not get chance to see them. The house looks fantastic love the colors. Fun working worh dad he is very patient with me cause i am kind of chicken on the ladders and jumping from one bucket to the next,ya he leaps around there lke nothing.I guess i must be scared of heights cause remember me on the roof shingling? So i pretty much keep dad company and hold and pound nails nothing to responsible.Well we do sleep well being outside all day.Love you miss you can hardly wait for us to be altogether again.
