There is only one place, looking ahead can simultaneously see the snow-capped mountains, grasslands, glaciers, waterfalls, hot springs, blue lakes and dense forests, as well as to shake the days of moving to 3000 feet of Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Yangtze River No. 1 Bay, three rivers and streams, multi-religious co-existence of ethnic minority customs million species customs ...... simple, quiet, and mysterious.
"Bible" in the story, more and more being constantly confirmed that the real world and found that, perhaps coincidentally, perhaps far-fetched, and "the Bible" and described as "the Garden of Eden," each of the natural landscape, are here real There, she is unique in the world "---- Zhongdian Shangri-La." "Shangri-La" in Tibetan, meaning - mind sun and the moon, the beginning of this century Englishman James. Hilton in the Shangri-La's an extraordinary experience, has left a indelible memories, he wrote "Lost Horizon" at the time caused a sensation throughout Europe, where he portrayed as an isolated Shangri-la!
I harbored curiosity, mystery and endless source of fascination, embarked on a search, "Garden of Eden" journey. From Kunming to Zhongdian, after Dali and Lijiang, quick bus ride luxury high VOLVO, (fare 100 yuan) to the Dali takes about 6 hours, half-way in the "Beautiful Hills" free meals, said that May 1 will be Zhongdian Pass the plane, but usually modern civilization wherever they went, the original nature of things also began its unstoppable demise, so I think, perhaps, or taking advantage of modern civilization has not been fully Before the invasion, take a look at that paradise bar, not to mention You can also appreciate the way Dali, Lijiang 2 "plateau Pearl" of the charm, how can miss!
Scenery along the way no special feelings, perhaps too many places to go, without too much novelty and excitement, and good in a movie DVD on board, as well as flight attendants like service with a smile, time is not sad, but nears Dali when the green paddy fields, golden meadows, ancient Gao Qiao's roof and different ethnic minority costumes began to feel I do not like folk and pastoral scenery, vaguely also see a "Hope primary schools", although seen many reports, it is not really first time witnessed, from the pedestrian crossing is not difficult to see that the local people life is very hard, he drove off the moment, I thought, maybe it will put inside the classroom donations funded in the presence of a party dedicated to the sacred, there are altars can not say xing XU miles. 16:00 or so, the car entered the "Cangshan Grand Hotel" (3 stars) compound, into one asked, Goodfellas, three or four hundred yuan per room between the left one is not even annex building are full, because " World Expo, "the convening of, Yunnan surge in tourists everywhere, hotels full, but fortunately I have friends of friends, accommodation should be no problem. Out of the hotel, on the right side of a mountain as if the end of the road, got off was raining, and now have seen the dark clouds in the injection peak sunshine, the temperature began to rise rapidly, which is probably the Yunnan people say, "a day off Four Seasons" bar.
Friend of a friend playing three pager no reply, thought, is it should not look for him? Prior to departure, a friend wrote me the contact phone, saying it was a "national guide," Do not misunderstand, not "Dao Ye" and "national tour," Liu Huaqing, Li Peng, Dali, are his reception, is said to be will host Jiang Zemin, along the way had also thought, "lead the country," the shelf not think of any small, it seems to validate my judgments, and may be totally unfamiliar, or stay tuned.
Finally call back, did not expect was a lady! A series of I'm sorry, immediately went to! Meeting, we began to discuss the arrangements for tomorrow's trip today to what the "National Introduction" are forgotten in the back of the head, and when she was talking about because of the pick me, even turned down a few teams, but also go to the station waiting for my time, sorry seem to have some heart.
Learned from her presentation, my luck is good, tomorrow will hold a grand festival of the local ethnic minorities, "March Street" opening ceremony, is more clever than really come as early as today, over the next six months, or Dali, the first rain It seems quite a good start tomorrow, let us go and feel it, "March Street" bar!
