Whilst in Dali I took the chance to catch up with a couple of old friends who live there. "Jessica" works at Dali University and I got to know her when she observed a weekly lesson of mine last year as part of some training she was doing. She was kind enough to arrange discounted boat tickets and cook us a delicious meal. And then there is Li Guo Zhi who was my boss when I worked for VSO a couple of decades ago! After that he decided to buy a Bai Minority-style house and convert it into a small school with some 50 students. He also gave us a warm welcome, helping JD catch grasshoppers [see photo above] and treating us to a lovely meal out. Thanks guys!
