In shangri-la Alice guided with asking some locals to our hostel and
arranged a room. unfortunately they had only a room for 6 and Alvaro
went into another room because in this room were just chinese boys. we
took a shower, gave our clothes for laundry and went for dinner. I lent
Alice some clothes of mine because she had left all her clothes in
lijiang. her plan was to go after the gorge back to lijiang with
Valentina and Marilen. As we were having dinner Mo and Ann walked by and
we had a small talk for the last time, we never saw them again. After
dinner some of us were still a little bit hungry and we found a good
place for street barbeque. After a nice sleep. Alice, Alvaro, Mat and I decided to rent a bicycle and go for a ride around shangri-la. We got three mountain bikes and Alice decided to get and one gear, small lady bike. But at the second big hill she realized that it was a bad idea. We arrived at a big lake and had to drive up another small hill to get to a beautiful spot over the lake. As we enjoyed the nice view we got a little bit hungry and we started heading back to find a place to eat. The it started to rain and we tried to find a place to take a break. But we couldn't find a dry place. but it stopped soon and some minutes later we were more or less dry again. Alice and i changed the bike to get back over the big hill. we tried to get near the famous temple of shangri-la we some from the top of the hill, but we had to pay and so we decided to back to shangri-la. as we passed the new part of the city we found a nice place for lunch. After that we went back to the shop we rented our bike and Alice changed her bike and we drove through the old town to the temple nearby. Then we brought our bikes back. after a nice shower we went to the main place for a snack and Alice and i tried to follow the local public dance. After 15min i gave up and went to an office to book my train to kunming for the next night. Alice kept dancing till the end, that was for more then 90min. After another nice dinner with the three others we went to sleep because we were still a little tired from the two day walk. The next day we took the bus back to lijiang , where we had dinner at mama naxi. after the dinner we split up. Victor and I took the night train to kunming, mat followed us the next day. Prezzo and Andrew had a flight the next day and Alice kept traveling around yunnan. And Alvaro has already left us after breakfast in shangri-la.
