Mohan to Puer

This mornings drive was to the Botanic Gardens about 90 mins drive from Mohan. The largest botanic gardens in China. We parked our cars and explored some of the area on foot. They were absolutely stunning…from the orchid display to the succulents and the water variety. Although the lotus’ were not flowering the water lilies were in abundance.

After 3 hours here and a quick picnic lunch we continued on our way to Puer, famous for its black tea. In fact as I write this I have a pot of loose tea brewing!

As can easily happen with cars that are over 40 years old, one of them had problems today. The mechanics amongst our group tried simple solutions and then worked through replacing spark plugs, spark plug leads, the distributor cap, the ignition coil and finally the distributor itself.  The car still was having problems and the last 8 kms was towed to the hotel by one of the others. However eventually it was decided it was a failed fuel pump. Fortunately we will all be on the road tomorrow.
