After a great lunch we left to continue our journey to the ancient city of Dali. When I had visited this area 4 years ago there was not the road then that is there now, so our travel time was cut in half. Here are some views along the way. You can easily see the fortress like positions chosen by villages on the top of these mountain ridges. The bridge looks old but was recently built. It is spanning the Lancang River (Mekong). It was about half a mile for us to walk across. I did have some envy after the walk for the boys playing in the water. It was a pretty a hot day.
