Jinghong - Stranger in a Strange land.

Arrived, through a downpour and mudslide battered roads, at the Mekohng river crossing - the city of Jinghong. Beautiful palm-lined streets, Thai architecture and balmy, tropical weather. Bike and rider were covered in mud and soaked.

I will write more later - suffice it to say now that I am at the southernmost province in Yunan. Only miles from the border of Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar. All signs are bilingual here - with Myanmar writing!
