Exploring Lijiang

Climbing Elephant hill

so today was a free day to do as we please. A cute town to explore and all day to do it, what to do first. Got to sleep in slighty although it was quite loud since there is holes in my room and a bird downstaris but managed to sleep till about 7:30 so not bad then read a bit very relaxing. Met ppl at about 915 and went for breakfast, had the naxi breakfast, which is friend eggs gian toast fried goat cheese and some potatoes thing which was very very good gonna make it for you dad whe ni get home you would love it. THen some of us went to Black Dragon Pond park thing and everyone chicken out but me and mark to climb elephant hill, it was a long ways up but absoultely breath taking views of all of lijaing. Its this lil town well quite large really nestled in between the mountains, one side of mountains is blanketed with green foresty and the other side is heaved with stone. Amazing! That took pretty muh all morinng and by the time we got out of park it was time to eat, we were hungry. Found another cute lil place that was in lonely planet and so we enjoyed our dinner. I watched Dark Night with Evan and mark then we went to the Naxi orchestra which was interesteign since the ppl are really old most of them in the 80s. But too much talking that i couldnt understand so not great but kinda cool. I picked up snakc since we leave early tom for tiger leaping gorge. And now eating a banana filled pancakey thing, qute goood... (mom the call for 17 min was lesss than 10 yuan, so it is super cheap so call whenever you want, we better use up those minutes, so give me a try in the morning or tom night my time, kinda tired to figure it out in your time sorry. but i am 14 hours ahead) So you can try. k well off hiking I go....
