I’m going to try something new. Instead of rambling on about the city of Dali, maybe I can show you through pictures.
After all, they do say a picture is worth a thousand words…
I’m not a professional photographer by any means. In fact, the camera that I used is a basic Nikon Coolpix camera. The ones you get from Costco.
So, all pretension aside. I give you Dali through a basic camera.
The Long Bus Journey (7 hours long…and then we hit traffic)
It’s hard to say what I thought of Dali. It’s a beautiful city, where every wall has a mural and where vast areas of farmland are surrounded by mountains and lakes. It’s a quiet city, unpretentious but with a sense that there’s excitement bubbling beneath the surface. I only had the opportunity to peel back the first layer of this city, to only see the surface, and I only wish I could have spent more time peeling.
