Despite a few mishaps, we had a lovely trip to western Yunnan. Here are a few photos gathered over the week.
All in all, it was enlightening, exhausting, exhilarating, exciting, and very very Chinese.
|One of my favorite towns was the ancient trading village of Shaxi.|

|Early on in the big hike, I was still able to take photos and marvel at the beauty around us.|
|And suddenly, the next pictures show us at the hospital on the next day, sitting on the laowai bench. What are we waiting for?|
|We're waiting for X-rays. Here, Bob's ribs get an expert examination from a very relaxed doctor, Frank, and our driver Mr. Ji, all of them eager to weigh in on whether and how many of Bob's ribs were broken.|
|We visit more ancient trading towns.|
|We shop for tie-dyed fabric.|
