I have a suggestion. Would it make sense to title the excellent GoKunming interviews with something that gives the reader an idea of who the person interviewed might be? Because just saying "Interview: so and so" gives the reader nothing to go on and less likely to actually click on it and read it. Just a thought.

The insatiably greedy, swallow up the little guy with our vast reserves of capital American corporate behemoth known as Starbucks has been driving locally owned cafes out of business all over the globe, while it treats its employees like dirt. I see no cause for celebration at the news that Yunnan is one step closer to being corporatized and globalized. If you can't live without your Starbucks fix, go back where you came from instead of cheering on the ruination of wonderful, funky, unique Yunnan. A Starbucks in Dali?! I hope I never live to see that day arrive. Wake up.



The Korean restaurant at 18 Wen Lin Jie is under new management and I recommend it highly. It is chef owned, the owner (Ivan) and his wife speak a little English, and they are very friendly and helpful. Fast service, excellent Korean food and good prices. No, I'm not related to them, I just really enjoyed our evening there recently and want to spread the word in hopes that they'll do well and be around for a long time so we can keep going back!
