Note 50: Prince Yunnan was stationed in Dali, and Prince Liang in Kunming.
In addition, other princes (zhuwang) were stationed either in Dali or in Kunming.
So the two roads joined in Dali connecting the Road of Bonan (Bonan Dao), so called because it crossed the Bonan Mountain.
During the Taiding reign (1324 – 1327) when the Huajiaoman (flower foot barbarian) rebelled, the emperor issued an edict to comfort them instead of launching a punitive expedition. 84 In 1325, some native peoples in Dali and Weichu revolted, and the provincial administration asked the court to pacify them, but the emperor denied this request and dispatched his envoys to deal with the "barbarians."
For example, it is said that the approximately 20,000 mu military colonies in Dali cultivated at the beginning of the Ming all disappeared from the military record, evidently a sign of having been taken by the powerful. 227 As a result, many military fields turned into civilian fields (mintian).
Dali is one of the most intruiging artist EVER, I love his works, and to see our fav. actor giving a try to portray an artist so complex - if he commits to this role as much as he did to Edward in Twilight, this movie will be definitely worth watching! jmccart3 (10/29/2008 12: 10: 47 AM)
Salvador Dali is enjoying a renaissance of interest, at least in Hollywood.
Al Pacino is attached to play the painter in "Dali & I: The Surreal Story."
The growing fascination between Lorca and Dali is beautfully played out and the script has obviously been crafted with care and attention.
In Yunnan the Camellia Hotel had a beautiful garden and was cheap, also the MCA Guest House in Dali was great another beautiful garden and off the beaten tourist path.
