Rise and shine it’s time for breakfast! The whole team got up at 7am and prepared for a new day today! At 8am after our briefing, we said our prayers and flagged off. We headed towards Kunming though Yuanjiang and Yuxi. The journey to Yuanjiang was approximately 200km and the route was rather rocky.
At noon, we stopped at Yuanjian and made friends with the locals while explaining to them about GMM and promoted our 2014 VMY. At the mean time, Ariffin’s “brake pad” broke and Faizal had to change it.
At 2pm, we had our lunch at the Islam Restauant at Yuanjian. When we were done, we filled up the tank and continued our journey from Yuanjiang to Yuxi before heading to Kunming. Once again, the journey was hilly and not to mention it was pouring rain! The journey then was really bad. The temperature hit 17ᵒC which made our hands really cold and dry. The wind too was very strong.
We made a stop at Yuxi for some refreshments and also bonded with the locals there. Around 7pm, we continued our journey to Kunming with the company of rain and strong wind. We managed to reach the Kunming Jin Jiang Hotel at 10pm. What a rough day indeed.
