Hi, Alfred -
Thanks for your reply. I always appreciate your sharing your vast
experience of Asia.
Here's what I was thinking. We will probably have a bunch of luggage
(if the shopping is good) and we both get motion sickness, so if we
fly I'd probably take a pill and be zonked. By the time we get to the
airport (18 miles north of Dali) an hour and a half before the flight,
wait for the plane, wait for the likely delays, get off, get our
baggage, get ground transportation - we've invested between three and
four hours. A car would take four or five hours. And there might be
something to see en route.
What do you think?
