From Lijiang I took a nightbus to Kunming. I had to spend here few days until I got my visa for Vietnam. From Kunming I took another night bus to Hekou. I cross the border in Vietnam at Lao Cai. I tooke a minibus to Sa Pa, which is a small a popular city . A lot of people come here to escape the heat. It is located in the mountains and there are beautiful rice terraces all over the places. It's a very nice place to be. However, it rains every day. I visited a village named Cat Cat down in the valley. The food is good (finally).
