Last Days in Yunnan
Having lived happily in Jinghong, China (ref: the "A" in Burma on the map) for a year it's now time to move on. Where to is a little hazy but first major stop is to be Hong Kong to meet the folks - (mum & dad). That's nearly 3000km from here and some serious work.Back on the bike soon but before that some more on my adventures in the land of Xishuangbanna.
Stunning scenery as I battled along.
(LEFT) Boys on their way home from school perhaps to a village just like this.
Construction of homes here was different to anything I'd seen before. Dogs similar.
Tunatong - I'm confident that's not the right spelling but sounds close.
Bits of the road fell away into the river as I cycled. People told me no-one had ridden this before.
Rough road - spent 2 hours cleaning the bike after this. Camping wasn't an option.
Mountain bike road of fantasy and (LEFT) a real tunnel (i.e. some concrete)
