Right so JingHong... was only there for one day so kept calling it jingjong/jingkong...and really didnt think it was goint to be anything amazing but after what a missiong though firstly we (me and my surrogate family in the group lol - we are becoming close due to all the adventures we are having) had to get up at 5.30am - ARG!! Then catch TWO planes (of which were delayed due to the foggy conditions - long!
SO we only really spent an afternoon there - going round markets, seeing some of the culture and having another lovely dinner (tried buffalo - pretty nice... but a tad leathery -not one to be tried if you have weak teeth!) and pineapple sticky rice 0 defo a reccommedation - soo good!!
It was a nice surprise to finally get some tropical 30oC weather...sooo good its like a cross between Thailand and China as again the people get more friendly the more south you go it seems... and there were palm trees...mango trees banana trees and cues that just say "tropicano tastes so sweet" (Wham quote ;) lol) it was lovely... but everyone is started to get bitten by those dreaded mosquitos OUCH time to get out that DEET!
Soi far I have been to Beijing, Shanghi, Xi'an, Chengdu and JingHong... tomorrow off to Laos...
