I embark on a journey today!
Arriving in Kunming was a thrilling experience,
Especially being greeted by colder temperatures than expected.
Kunming so far reminds me of a mixture of Beijing and Guangzhou. As the climate here in January is quite chill and the feel of the cities age resembles Guanzhous’ busy streets.
My random subway ride took me to a town called DOUNAN. It was an absolute pleasure to see such a small town made of clay. It was a vast contrast to its neighboring station SOUTH COACH STATION.
DOUNAN was a quiet town, with a rich aromatic fragrance like a smokey cedar. In my opinion I think I came to DOUNAN at a perfect time. Although the weather was not extremely warm, it wasn’t very cold on this particular day either. The sun was quite warm and it was accompanied by a light breeze that resembled the temperament of a fall season.
