Yunnan Province seems to be a lost more laid back then elesewehere in China. I blagged my way on to the Express Highway again and no one seems bothered. I even got a tug from the old bill an hour from Pu’er and all he was really interested in was checking to see my paperwork was in order.
I crossed the Tropic of Cancer half way to Pu’er and suddenly the weather and scenery has become much more tropical … including the intense rain showers.
I also crossed what claims to be the world’s highest bridge. Will find out more later. In the meantime here’s a picture.
