Today we went to look for a recommended bike shop in town. What i need is to replace the worn out derailleur which has been bordering me since Luangprabang in Laos. This time i am lucky the shop has a similar spare to replace for 200 rmb,cheap! For Siaw Jin, he bought a pair of front pannier with rack, so that he can distribute his luggage more evenly. I also bought a bottle of chain lubricant ( white lightning ). Thru the friendly owner of the shop , he recommended a cushion shop to repair my battled seat where many of the stitches and staplers came off , for free ( refuse to let me pay ). We hanged around at the bike shop until 5 pm and went back to the hotel for a short rest. There is nothing much you can do in the town centre except rows of eatery shops and restaurants. So we took a cab to where the tourists go - The ancient city of Lijiang, about 5-6km away. A truely fantastic old town decorated by lots of real flowers with its very old tiny wooden shop lots, pilling on both sides of the cobblestone walkway. At night, the romantic light of many red lanterns were hanging just about every corners. We had a great dinner in one of the restaurant and later went up to the highest point to have a birdeye view of the night scenery. Thanks to my ride partner Siaw Jin.
