We had a great day of riding along the shore, through many crowded towns full of cars trying to squeeze through narrow roads. Along the way we ate lake fish for lunch and found an interesting dragon festival in a small village. The next day we rode a train for seven hours to the big city of Kunming, from which Katie flew back to Beijing and I took another train for 33 hours. Just 'cuz.
The best part of our day at Erhai Lake: no broken chains. Here are some photos:
There were many fields like this one, with ubiquitous mountains in the background.
The lake is a popular place for wedding photography.
This group was preparing for a performance.
