Day 1 and have arrived at the Ju Hua Inn in Shaqiao. Only rode for about 12 miles today, an easy first day. Our coach transported us out of Kunming, mainly because it is a very busy city and the roads are extremely dangerous to cyclists. The countryside reminds me of India. There are many, many people working at the side of the roads wearing the traditional coolie hats. There are stationary engines on trailers providing power and have seen some brickworks.
Have just eaten a delicious Chinese banquet, the second in two days, it is a good job cycling burns off the calories or their would be weight problems pretty soon! Having an early night tonight in preparation for some arduous riding tomorrow.
