We were very keen to see a rural and scenic part of China; Yunnan seemed to fit the bill. We’d see interesting places.
We’d meet interesting people.
There would be opportunities to do some wonderful walks.
We could stay in high quality hotels; unlike our fascinating but hardy experience in Tibet eight years earlier. Steppes East put together an excellent itinerary for us – here it is available for download: Harris – Final itin dep 4 Apr 2010.
We took some great pictures, divided into three albums:
- 2010 China Part 1 – Beijing, Kunming & Dali;
- 2010 China Part 2 – Weishan, Shaxi & Lijiang;
- 2010 China Part 3 – Yuhu, Zhongdian & Sanya.
One good story is already up and available – an unexpected cricket match between Tibet and England, with me representing England. The match was also reported in excruciating detail on King Cricket, a few weeks after the event.
As usual, there are loads of notes waiting to be written up properly. If you are desperate to see them and try to decipher them before I get there – feel free to download and have a go:
