First cycling day and visiting the UNESCO Stone Forest of Shilin

We drove out of Kunming and found the karst area hugely popular and wonderful, with great infrastructure and people moving. 

Onto our bikes for 50 kms. We make a crowd, with 22 riders and three cycling guides, two support vans and one bike truck. That’s leader Larry Adamson filling us in. 

Farming covers the countryside. The cornstalks are piled high by the roadside but the purpose of this remains a mystery. China has invested in clean energy and we saw wind generation. 

Talk about being novel. Smartphones are seen everywhere here, we are videoed along the road, through towns and villages, and in the restaurants. 

The owners and the chef wanted photos. Good natured fun.
