Forums > Living in Kunming > Paul's shop, Jian Shi Rd address?

Also, there's a little-known baking shop right across the street from Salvador's. If you're facing out the door of Sal's, there's a stand in an alley at the entrance of a residential building right across the street. The stand sells drinks and cigarettes. If you go past that stand and turn right, there is a lady who keeps a baking shop there on the first floor. She has a surprisingly large variety of stuff. Standing mixers, vanilla, coconut flakes, powdered sugar, etc.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > 10-year Indian Visa?

I am planning to take advantage of the direct flight between Kunming and Kolkata. It seems that US and Canadian citizens are able to get 10-year visas for India. Has anyone done this? Did you do it in China or in your home country?

Nice, James and Jordan! Great article. So grateful to James for all the work he puts in. For those who are interested in urban gardening, I would ask that chemical insecticides and pesticides not be used, as they kill bees, which are the cornerstone of a healthy natural environment.



Lovely restaurant with top-notch service and fantastic food. I love all the beets, avocados, brussels sprouts, asparagus, quinoa, and tempeh. At first glance of their new menu I was overjoyed to see so much deliciousness, then nearly passed right out from elation when I noticed most of it is vegan! In all seriousness though I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Highly highly recommend!


Best pizza in town. Slice of Heaven's a close second, and a better value on their 20kuai pizza Fridays, but overall taste and selection goes to Lost Garden, hands down. I went there for the 3rd or 4th time for the pizza night last week. We sat on their roof terrace, which has been re-done very nicely since the last time I was there. The service was reasonable, and the waitresses even spoke some English! On a previous visit I had a pumpkin soup and a baked pasta, both delicious and well-presented. Anecdote: I was there once on a cold day a couple of months ago and the foreign manager (owner?) made my friend and I hot toddies upon request, even though they're not on the menu, and they were pretty much perfect. I have nothing negative to say about this place.
