Puer Tour Day Eight

On the eighth day we spent the day in Lincang. Master Hu gave us a class in distinguishing quality in a puer cake. As a consequence we had some very good tea in the morning. In the afternoon we when to a park dedicated to the Yunnan ethnic minorities and there tea traditions. About 50 ancient tea trees had been transplanted to the park. In the park we climbed a hill that had a graveyard that was surrounded by tea. The park was almost deserted except for us. It had been built for tourists that have never come to Lincang. Never the less it was very beautiful if not populated, and the park officials arranged for two charming girls to do a local tea ceremony for us. We finished the day with a great dinner and a walk around the streets.
