Onwards to the Thailand of China. Where street signs bear a different language and Elephants are the name of the game. Hurry doesn't fill the locals vocabulary here, neither does bad weather or a hatred of barbeque. Pull up a stool, the weather's astounding and a friend is only a meal away.

... a minute and the guy already was freaking out. He seemed an oddly paranoid guy—he had a police detector on his dash that beeped rapidly every time there was a police car nearing. Again, no sleep for us! 8 or so hours later, we arrived in Jinghong. We headed outside, attempting to find our way to our hostel when a woman suddenly approached us with perfect English asking where we wanted to go. I figured we’d have to pay up for whatever she was doing, but instead she was just ...

... of the young boys become monks for a few years as this is how they obtain an education. It also makes them more attractive to the women as husbands later on. It was hard to believe we were still in communist china. It seems a lot of the communist idea on eradication of religions has been relaxed especially in the minority villages. The people have largely left to continue their traditional way of life. The are even allowed to have more than one child. We sat ...

Jinghong is located on the west bank of the Mekong River (known as Lancang here) and even as we crossed the suspension bridge over the river late at night, we noticed that this city cared heavily about its public places. Beautiful street lamps that glowed neon colors, heavy contour lighting of bridges and buildings, the whole city was lit up beautifully!

... the SW is dog eating country, another reason for me to avoid the meat. I see no reason to eat a trusting, tail wagging, doggie; ditto for monkey, sharks fin, and any other of the common meat found in parts of Asia. Why should I? I wince even seeing lumps of congealed blood on a diners plate, or pig snout, interior pork parts, chicken head, feet, innards, brains.. Ummm. I did munch on a rocky mountain oyster once.

I flew to Kunming again, on to Beijing and Washington ...

    Thai Garden (Daiyuan) Hotel, very nice property but a little tricky. NO ENGLISH SPOKEN HEAR. They have 2 hotels there one is called the Tai Garden and the other is called the New Tai Garden Hotel. One they say is rated as a 5 star and the other a 4 star. However the pictures on all the advertisements mixes the best of each and worst of all they book you into their 3rd hotel which is a 3 star at best but really a no star. There are about 75 rooms there with no lobby or help, you book into the 4 star then walk about a block away. It is much older and has no internet. The rooms are clean but all the things they tell you such as breakfast, business center, etc are all at the other place. There are no restaurants at any although they say they have them. On the plus side although not as convenient as you are led to believe the "place" is clean but old and out of date. For the price in this area it is a little high for what you get. But like I said the worst is being misled by the pictures. Make sure when you book you are in one of the "main" hotels and the room has internet. Near the front gate which is about 200 meters from the hotel to your left as you go out is a pretty good local Thai style restaurant.
