A bit late to the conversation...blobbles is quite right that I was vague regarding the inclusion of 'mess' in the sentence. Ocean and atwillden are also correct in recognizing what I was referencing. I should have been more specific in explaining the back story.
The retrial date has been announced: December 3.
The article has been updated with finalized times for performances.
@Geogramatt: the source article is no more specific than Simao District, which is mentioned in the above article's second sentence. It is one of ten administrative districts in Pu'er and located in the south-central portion of the prefecture.
An expandable map with the event venues has been added above.
@AlexKMG: she's twelve. I think a bit of naiveté may come with the territory, thus the request for help.
I'll be a bit more specific: she would like to know the differences between things like child-rearing in big cities vs in the countryside. Same goes for differences between games kids play at recess, school year and curriculum differences, what adults do for entertainment etc. Her class is traveling to Xizhou later this year and she's doing preliminary research now to see what major differences exist.
GoKunming just received an email from an incredibly inquisitive and precocious young woman who lives in Shanghai. She needs help writing about life in rural Yunnan and has several questions I can't answer. Is there anyone out there familiar with Xizhou who would be willing to help?
@blobbles: There will not be a GoKunming story about this. Details, at this point, are speculation and we would prefer the bombast taking place on Weibo not spill over here. What we do know is that the concerned parties spent the night in police arbitration where they reached a mutual agreement.
I went there yesterday afternoon with every intention of getting a pizza. But when I got the menu it said very clearly that pizza and pasta are not available until after 5pm (the wood-fired oven has to warm up). Just a heads up to everyone. The brisket sandwich was an awesome substitute for the pizza.
