The French Cafe on WenLinJie has been shuttered for several days now..
Anybody know if this is permanent?
A fine little place; affordable too.

Not going to happen, C Ray.

The people are supposed to be lost and uninformed; can't you tell?
On this site, you might be given an obscure suggestion for an obscure zit of an obscure slice of a tiny toy phone.

There are no bus route maps, anywhere, and I feel your pain..

Off topic: I was fortunate to have visited the cemetery of Rachel's namesake; Ernest "Papa" Hemingway, at Ketchum Idaho. Far off the beaten track; a winter ski resort area, it was worth the detour, for those with a literary inclination..

He lies alongside wife Mary, with a slender evergreen at the head of both graves, which were simple slabs of dark granite; about 8 feet (2 & 1/2 M) long.. Visitors had left little trinkets, coins, etc, at the foot of the graves; otherwise, no magic-markings or signs of desecration in this quiet and desolate location.. Other Hemingway graves were not far away, but whose names I don't remember.

And when in doubt, recycle anyway. Even if the plastic is unfit for re-use, it is generally incinerated in environmentally approved facilities, with proper filtration.

Burnt unfiltered plastic releases toxic levels of p.c.b's.

It is regrettable that bio-degradable plastic has yet to gain traction on an industrial basis. It was developed around 5 years ago, in the US, as I recall.
Many people simply don't grasp the theory of recycling; never have and never will.

My experience indicates that southern Europe is as guilty of plastic pollution as the Asian nations; there are simply many more people in Asia.
