Dali – City Wall Views


Dali – City Wall Views
Originally uploaded by paulbrockmann.

I’m leading the “city wall views” set with this one since I was simply delighted, throughout northern Yunnan (here, Lijiang, Tiger Leaping Gorge
and on the roads between them all) to see the occasional “spring” flowering tree, blooming its little heart out in the dead of January. Clearly down at the lower elevations it’s not too cold during the day, but the nights do get
cold…and yet the plums (or whatever these are) still start blooming, which just signals spring to me, and made my Beijing-winter heart quite happy. The city walls encircle all of the old town, and are well maintained and as yousee planted with lovely trees and flowers in many parts. Really quite lovely.
