In case you’ve seen it in the news, there was a fairly strong earthquake this morning not far from Shangri-la. We had just finished packing our bags and were preparing to head to the bus station when there was a loud rumble followed by about five seconds of fairly strong shaking of the floor, walls, and ceiling.
We had planned to leave Shangri-la this morning anyway to head south to Dali and we spent the day on the bus. Traveling south we saw about 10-15 emergency vehicles heading north, but other than that, life seemed pretty normal in northern Yunnan.
More updates to come.
