I agree with you on mask wearing, however...

colinflahive wrote: "Yes, I know there is little scientific evidence that masks are that useful, at least when used how most of us are using them, and they might even help spread contagions more."

Is the source of this information from the U.S. CDC? They've advised Americans not to wear masks if healthy, but to wear masks only when ill.

As the United States reported 977 new cases and 18 new deaths just yesterday, there are signs that U.S. health officials (e.g. State Dept. of Health) are waking up to the prevalence of asymptomatic cases of transmission. The asymptomatic spreading to 80 contracted attendees of a Biogen tech conference in Massachusetts raised new alarms, though substantial empirical evidence of asymptomatic spreading have already been documented in China, as backed by peer-reviewed studies.

Those who are unknowingly infected yet show no symptoms (asymptomatic), may cough or sneeze viral droplets inside an elevator. Those floating droplets could possibly suspend in air, such that next passengers risk inhaling them. This highlights the importance of mask wearing even if you feel fine.

The point of mask wearing despite feeling healthy is made clear by President Xi as he made victory laps in Wuhan while donning a mask. He is intentionally setting an example to the public at large.

So perhaps no, it is not "only a false sense of control" as some camps in the U.S. would have you believe.

Patrons of will be allowed to dine inside restaurants, not just take out, starting tomorrow throughout most of Kunming.

Is Colin in Thailand, or is he back to open Sal?

Another lead for surgical mask acquisition in less time. Kunming pharmacy chain Yi Xin Tang (一心堂) have been offering 5rmb surgical masks (supposedly imported from abroad). 2 pieces limit for each person, and ID must be presented. Buyers have to first register with the pharmacy then wait for perhaps one week or so for shipment arrival. Ask the Yi Xin Tang pharmacist about this next time you or your wife pass by them.

herenow, thanks for the update.

bucko, back so soon? Safe journey tonight/after midnight/tomorrow morning.

More leads on surgical masks...

The Green Party is a lifestyle store on the second floor of Kunming's Golden Eagle Shopping Center (B annex) where Burger King used to be above Starbucks.

On their WeChat official account, they are selling 50 surgical masks for 125 rmb.

Prices used to be 95 rmb, but demand markup rose to 105, then 115... currently 125 cny.

For those in dire need of surgical masks, you could follow The Green Party WeChat and order online.

Lastly, don't get complacent with hand hygiene and mask donning. The fight is ongoing.

Located at very top in editor's note, this article is clearly described as a "sponsored post" which is a win win win for expat community in Kunming, Igor, and GoKunming.

My only critique is the name "pain campagnard"... such a added-value fancy way of saying country bread to mark up the price of bread.

But like tasting omelets, gauging the skill of a chef sometimes requires tasting their simplest goods, such as the French bread tucked between the owner's arm.

Good sponsored post.

Looks like we found a place for chess players to meet over coffee and pastries. A chess master awaits your next move.

Igor's may be a sight for sore eyes. I'm tired of the gastronomic staleness of mainstream bakery chains in JustHot, Breadworks, BreadTalk, Holiland (though their warm fresh-out-of-oven almond danish isn't bad), and particularly Jiahua Bakeries.

Some landmark attractions such as Pudacuo National Park, has already become your dreaded "tourist theme park." Unless you trek off the beaten track by not getting on the park shuttles.

A bit of devil's advocacy...

So what if Shangri-La's popularity was based on a novel? At face value it's not. The bulk of tourists are Chinese who've probably never heard of Lost Horizon.

And if you think about it from another perspective, the majority of human race base their faiths/lifestyles on books such as the Bible, Quran, or the Pali Canon. Entire nations have become theme parks of a different variety.

Books dubbed holy are culminations of hearsay folklore verbally passed down for centuries, subject to distortions, before being written down and revised in various editions to reflect the social norms of their times. They are texts which elicit the hope of a glorious, eternal paradise in the afterlife, despite no actual proof of existence let alone vulnerabilities to scientific debunking.

Nevertheless, billions of souls on this planet await their interpreted versions of Shangri-La-ish Garden of Eden, which would put James Hilton's "mythical" one to shame. We'll never actually know if the deceased will reach that promise land. At least readers of James Hilton's novel won't be totally disappointed when arriving at actual geological wonders bordering Tibet, Sichuan, and Yunnan.

The second featured picture of the black red-billed choughs gliding above the monastery like eagles is true to their philopatry.

Keep up the Youtube videos Jordan Porter. I've watched all of them and looking forward to more journeys through China. Don't be discouraged by the underwhelming viewership. May Destination China series be deeply meaningful for you on a personal level.

Businesses in Shangri-La Old Town are slow but would usually pick up from July through September. Many entrepreneurs are holding down the fort and betting on the incoming bullet train next year. Fortunately 10-year rental contracts with locals are relatively low over there, for now. A mere 500rmb/month could get you a decent storefront.
