Off the Beaten Track

"Normally 2-3 hours, today double that", was the answer to our question of how long it would take to go to the Dragon Back Rice Terraces - the problem of going anywhere in China during National Day holidays... But no matter, we were quite happy with more cycling off the beaten track. The girls did really well on their little hired bikes, bouncing off the stones, steering around chickens and dogs, and avoiding collisions with the occasional moped or plunging into rivers. 
We had lunch in Luna (fantastic warm pear, walnut & stilton salad) and then visited Big Banyan Tree, which is - funnily enough - a big Banyan tree, 1,400 years old, as wide as it is tall.
