Random day

sunny 26 °C


After drinking a bit too much last night we awoke with pretty sore heads. Jo decided to have a lie in so I headed off the the Dwarves Empire with a few other people from the hostel.

The Dwarves Empire was possibly one of the most bizarre things I have ever (and probably will ever) see. The site of this 'attraction' is about an hour out of Kunming on top of a huge hill. It is a community of people who, for various reasons, are shorter than most people. This community has it's own king and parliament (apparently). Twice a day the community puts on a show. We went to the morning show at 1150am. This mainly consisted of dancing, signing and some random acting. After the show, we were free to walk around the village and also admire the views from the top of the hill. Google "Dwarves Empire Kunming" if you want to read any more about this...I am still a bit lost for words.

We spent the afternoon lazing around on the outdoor sofas on the hostel roof terrace eating chips waiting until it was time to leave for our sleeper train to Guilin!
