A chink in the firewall
It's raining and chilly here in Dali, and upstairs on the balcony, overlooking the courtyard of the Jade Emu hostel, the wedding party are rehearsing. The celebrant, Phil, is a Kunming karate teacher, with a sideline in sausage-making. S and I brought cool weather clothes from home, but, in our effort to pack light to come to Dali, left it all in Kunming. Hopefully the venue will be warm. The Jade Emu hostel is much nicer than it sounds. Clean, bright and friendly, and full of character. They've stuck a red good luck decoration on the main gate, and blown up red balloons. If I could locate my card reader, I'd post some pictures. Maybe later.
