On the way back to Deqin

Now it is 9.13 – outside i can hear somebody with a wood saw, chicken, sometimes a car honking, and the monks pray. Sky is still gray. Have more than 3 hours before the bus leaves for Lijiang. Found a host over there that has a nice old house – similar to the one from Monika and Alex in Deli.
Time for a shower and breakfast!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
