Exploring – Dali, Yunnan by Night

1 Dec

Dali is populated by one of the larger minority ethnic groups in China, the Bai people.  We decided to have dinner during our night in Dali and sample some traditional Bai fare.  This included a special type of fish stew cooked in a clay pot and a dish with fresh water snails and chili sauce. 

After dinner we then took a walk through the town to see what was up.  There was so much going on – street vendors including one selling cheese melted on a stick, a movie shown on the side of the city wall (which was a classic, famously set in Dali) and a water channel down the street flanked by bars.

It was easy to see that it was going to be a late night for many people.  We decided to finish it with a quick massage and then smile up at the twinkling stars before heading to bed.  We had a mountain to climb the next day.
