Tuesday 10th January 2012 in Kunming


They call Kunming the spring city because of it’s climate, not to hot in the summer and not to cold in the winter, also seems to be quite windy to me and apparently it’s at 1900m on a plateau, so hopefully down hill tomorrow when I leave.

Went to the zoo today, can’t say I really enjoyed it, seeing all the animals in cages, they just all look so bored, pacing up and down on concrete floors and people were just throwing them whatever food they had, especially the monkeys which a fortnight ago I saw running around in the wild! Also went to a park, with a big lake with hundreds of seagulls on it. Very popular place with women sitting around knitting, loads of people playing mah-jong and loads of people doing that slow dancing/exercise to music that they all do.

All loaded up and ready to start riding again tomorrow, after more than ten days of not riding could be hard work!
