So the Chinese government blacked out your internet while North Korea launched another missile?

My connection here in KM was perfectly fine. you must be quite important. Me? Much less so.

Learning a second language, English or not, exposes you to new cultures, ways of thinking and helps you meet people from outside of your own country/comfort zone. All great bonuses to have regardless of what profession you may chose in life.

@neddy: please stop asking the same thing over and over. Want peer-reviewed articles? Use google or baidu. It literally takes one second and if you have these sorts of questions, you can find out for yourself instead of egging people on. Now to directly contradict what I just wrote, here is a starting place:

@changkt: I very much agree with you. My sister hiked the AT in its entirety several years ago and now goes back for volunteer maintenance all the time. Having a trail system in Yunnan with that amount of dedication would be amazing. I hope it happens. Brice, 加油!

Don't know if Red Point is still going, but last year Kunming added a "6" to the beginning of all land line numbers. Try calling 63372350.

@ tommann

A few thoughts: The article says quite clearly that they confessed, making notions of 'innocent until proven guilty' a bit superfluous. Also, people writing in the forums on GoKunming don't usually issue final verdicts in Chinese courts.

Recommended by a friend and when the weather turned wet and chilly I though it was time to try it out. This place is no frills, really just four walls, some tables and chairs and really good food. The people running the place know what they are doing in the kitchen and the level of customer service was fantastic.

If you are tired of Chongqing-style hotpot, check this place out.

Excellent service. The menu is limited but that's the point. My croissant was flaky, buttery and wonderful, while the Eggs Benedict couldn't have been better. Nice passion fruit juice to compliment everything. Well done.

Not a huge collection, but a good one. Very well-preserved frescos from more than 500 years ago. Interesting to see how Naxi, Tibetan, Bai and Han artistic traditions all mesh. Cool building housing everything too. Plus, there's a small collection devoted to Joseph Rock. Cool for history dorks like me.

The is a lot of history here. Joseph Rock spent time withe monks and abbot here in the 1920s and 30s and took some absolutely amazing photographs. Interesting place where spiritual traditions and local minority cultures mix.

Shuhe itself is a nice little day trip, and Jubao adds even more to do. Great place to hike around in a natural setting and enjoy the solitude and silence. Lovely little spot.
