Elliot, we are very, very sad to see LB go, but we all know that with your talent and drive that whatever you do next will be even better! And next time, you won't have a crappy partner holding you back! Keep your head up!
Do any of you know of a good motel/hotel that is affordable near the airport in Beijing? I stayed at one last time I traveled through that was pretty disgusting. Just want a clean, quiet place to crash before catching a flight early in the morning. Any advice would be much appreciated!!
I just signed up for mail at gmx.com. A couple of techie sites recommended it, and it seems pretty great so far. It imports your gmail mail, too, so you don't have to cancel your old account. And, if you have tree-huggin tendencies, it seems that the company's servers are run with renewable energy!
We've been using Ivacy for a year and a half, and its worked like a dream until this week. On top of that, we paid US $12 a year ago and still haven't run out of credits!! Of course, we only turn it on to use Facebook, Youtube, and whatnot. But maybe that's why it's gone away now? Who knows- not very tech savvy, but truly hope I don't have to pay $100 or more to get a new one!! If anyone else uses Ivacy and has any tips, let us know, please!!
Lovely courtyard restaurant in the center of Green Lake park. A great place for a western meal or some chill cocktails with friends. Friendly staff and an amazingly well stocked bar. They also have a great brunch special on most weekends. It's Kunming's hidden gem!
Booked a decent room and got upgraded for free to a suite on the club floor. Room had an amazing bathtub with a view of the whole city, plus a sitting room and a separate bedroom with nice views as well. I'd say the service and décor in general were just ok, but the free cocktail hour and buffet breakfast that were included made it an above average experience.
One of the best weekend getaways I've had in a very long time. Wonderful, kind owners, gorgeous surroundings, and awesome bread and pizza. There's also a well stocked bar. It's just a lovely, chill place for anyone that's looking for a quick escape from the city. I'd recommend calling ahead to book if you plan on staying overnight or want to make special arrangements for food.
I've always been a fan, but the new menu is especially exciting. Tried the pulled pork pizza and the burger last night- yum! Happy that there are more varied options now. Can't wait to try the 4 cheese pasta next-looks AMAZING!
