And the next stop on our tour....

The two blonde girls sipping beer at a restuarant down the road!

Not a very eventful day today.... The train ride to Dali was beautiful - mountains and a giant lake (who knew Dali was on a massive lake?! Clearly we have not read up enough on where we're going!!!). By 11am we were settled into our lovely hostel and had done some clothes washing. Then off into Dali Old Town. Very pretty!

We wandered the streets for a few hours and I FINALLY managed to get accountant Tammy to part with the equivalent of £1 for a very pretty bracelet - it has been a struggle guys! Whereas Tam is now under strict instructions to not let me buy anything else in China!!! I WANT ALL THE BRIGHT COLOURED DRESSES!!!!!

As you do in the middle of the afternoon when away from home, Tam and I decided to grab a quick beer in a little cafe on one of the main streets in Old Town. Whilst sitting there, a few people in a tour group requested to have their picture taken with us - no biggie. Five minutes later, the entire tour group was back to be filmed with us..... it seems we have now achieved the status of tourist attraction! Ace! Or maybe not! Whatever happened to a quiet pint?!

Still, possibly one of the funniest things to happen to us so far, perhaps barring the incident in the toilet at Tiger Leaping Gorge! Stay tuned!
