Read your BBC link.

If traditional diet of the elephants had been depleted in their natural habitat due to human encroachments, perhaps their 15 Elephant March protest at the doorstep of COP 15 is surreptitiously getting the attention of the United Nations before they convene in October.

Colin, this was just updated 2 hours ago on ft.com in regards to yesterday's new guidelines issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand:

"Carriers will be asked to perform health checks of passengers at check-in and passengers will be asked to present health certificates “certifying that they have no risk of Coronavirus Disease”, according to the guidelines, dated March 8 and published on Monday... Passengers who are unable to present such certificates will be denied boarding.

Thailand last week designated the same six countries and territories “dangerous communicable disease areas”, and imposed a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine requirement for people arriving from them. The new rules set a 20,000 Thai baht ($633) fine for people who failed to comply, but there was confusion as to how the new rules would be enforced, or to which countries they would apply."

Colin, I hope you're not entering Thailand from China ( nor South Korea, Macao, Hong Kong, Italy or Iran). Because if you are, you'd be facing a 14-day compulsory quarantine.

Get ready for a marathon shower & doughnut binge, perhaps at the same time.

Haven't passed by Just Hot as of late, so I can't be certain.

But in case they're closed, other Kunming bakery chains like Jiahua Bakery sell donuts, as do Carrefour bakery. The ones that Homer Simpson likes to eat. Can't be overly picky during an outbreak, now can we?

Bon Appétit seems to be well stocked, though lots of empty containers at Holiland Bakery. Bread Works also open. Latter three bakeries don't seem to have donuts, unfortunately.

Still, an upgrade from your chickens and survivor piggy.

I'm excited for Yuxi to hold such a recognized event. Chengjiang County is part of Yuxi, is it not?

Will our Holland to Kunming bike riding Vera be participating in the much shorter 115km action, whether sideline or on the course?

Has century old Tour de France evolved to accommodate female riders?

I can't help but think of disgraced Armstrong when this race is mentioned. Was he repentant or still denying culpability?

So many questions.
