Some birding friends 
were planning to hire a car and go up 
the Nujiang 怒江(Salween) Valley in west Yunnan, 
and we got the chance to join them. 
We have got beyond Bingzhongluo 丙中洛,
north of Gongshan 贡山.  

         As it happened, poor weather affected the birding, 
         but we found that the road from Lushui泸水 to Pianma 片马, 
         over the shoulder of the Gaoligong Range 高藜贡山脉, was a good site.
                Later we looked at some areas of Lanping county 兰坪县 including the 
                Luogujing 箩古箐 area of the proposed Laojunshan National Park 老君山国家公园
                and then moved on to Old city大理古城  where we ended our trip.
