It took us a while, but we finally discovered a Dali blog: Cloud South. Run by a lad from Leeds and a Kunming native, this is already one of our favorite Yunnan blogs.

One of Cloud South's standout features is Cecilia Pym's excellent photography - the above image was taken from a post about the Wa 'Rub you black' festival in Cangyuan County, Lincang Prefecture.

Cloud South is also brimming with interesting posts, our favorites being 'Beliefs' and 'Bluff your way in Yunnanese'. The site offers a wealth of knowledge about customs, culture and language in Yunnan. For the most part, all posts are informative, insightful and entertaining.

Check it out.
