It was chaotic peak hour traffic when we left Kunming (8.15) this morning and a lovely sunny day.
We did the touristy thing and paid a well worthwhile visit to a Stone Forest a couple of hours into our drive. Masses of tall limestone pinnacles many with overhangs which gave the impression of being beneath the trees in a forest. It covered quite a large area with stairs and caves-we even managed to get temporarily lost!
The everchanging landscape still provided us with stunning scenery. We noticed more and more animals (cows, horses, buffalo) being used as farm animals.
Driving through one village we wondered why every few metres the road was covered with dried wheat. It soon became apparent that we vehicles were the wheat threshers!
