I've just arrived in Jiulong from Kangding by bus this afternoon. The trip wasn't so good as last time as most of the mountain passes were in cloud and there wasn't much to see. I'm now staying at the Gao'ed Bingguan and hoping to go toSanyanlonmg tomorrow. Jiulong hasn't changed much. The town square has been spruced up a bit and there are tourist advisopry posters about the place, but it's still fairly quiet. It does look like they're putting in a bigger road to Wuxu Hai, though.
Pity I can't post any pictures, but blogger is bloccked here in China.
