OK, let's make it Saturday.

Meet at Sal's 11am. Bring a spare tube, etc. and something to munch out on the trail. Helmet and gloves would also be a pretty good idea...

Just taking a chance that it's open because I haven't had any issues there in the past. The entrance to this trail is quite a way from town, and I think it's mostly the trails near to town that get closed. Changchong being the obvious example.

Friday is better for me. I can show you a nice ride in the Jindian area which is long, but not steep or difficult.

I can't really get away before 11am. Is that OK?


No results found.


"GK: Most of Yunnan's organic produce leaves the province for markets such as Beijing and Shanghai; when do you see a significant portion of Yunnan's organic food output being consumed in Yunnan?

JK: Not anytime soon."

It's time for this to change.



I've been eating here regularly for a year now and my opinion of it keeps getting better. The staff and owners are lovely welcoming people, and the food is excellent.

It's the only Chinese restaurant in Kunming where I can be confident that I'm not ingesting large amounts of agricultural poison along with my food.

Go there. Often.


I'm afraid that I'm the problem. I'm not the boss, but I bake the bread.

I'm quite inconsistent and unreliable.

The thing is, I don't do the same things everyday and get the bread out at the same time everyday. I understand the danger in this, but I can't stop trying new things. Often, those experiments fail, or go slower than I hoped. But I am learning from them.

I'm trying to organise something so that hopefully, soon, things will settle into a routine.

Please bear with me.


Hard to think of a reason not to give Dune a five star review. The owners are very friendly and provide excellent service, as do the staff.

The noodles are decent, and give one a good impression of the kitchen; I won't be afraid to sample other dishes on the menu.

The main event though is the beer selection, which is one of the best in town.
A great spot to sit in the afternoon sun sipping a good beer.


I am a great lover of Indian food, so it is with a heavy heart that I see people here rate this place. In short, the food is very bad. To sell it as "authentic Indian cuisine" is poor.

Last time I went I wrote a note offering to teach the chefs some recipes that I know are very good. I saw the staff throw my note in a bin. Not cool.
