    The footprint of the gods

    I have literally never experienced anything like this. This area was carved by the gods themselves and the hotel must surely have been their home-stay. If you want 5 star lodging with an authentic connection to China, this is your place. Brian Linden could not have been any more hospitable as he takes pride in more than just his hotel. He knows the place intimately and is invested in your well being as much as he is from benefiting from your business.

    The Linden Centre is a beautiful hotel with a sense of history and every modern convenience. The rooms are stylishly furnished with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. There a nice touches and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone speaks English and it is possible to arrange tours and activities on site. The bar serves excellent cocktails and has a selection of wine. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a choice between western and Chinese breakfast. I only sampled the western breakfast and enjoyed good coffee, eggs, juice and toast.

    Nothing is more powerful than an idea. Ideas spring people to action and bring the future to our doorstep. Ideas transform current problems into integrated solutions. Ideas propel humanity forward and provide us with a shared sense of purpose.

    Thirty years ago, a man by the name of Brian Linden had an idea. As he watched China modernize …

    Xizhouzhen, north of Dali

    Today we caught a bus to the north of Dali and wandered around Xizhou town. It amazes me how we are managing to get where we want to go with very limited one word written on a piece of paper! Buses are very cheap and usually leave when they are full, it's a great way of seeing the surrounding areas. It is quite hot walking ...

    We arrived in Shaxi in the late afternoon. There was a crisp freshness in the air that was, without a doubt, the smell of Spring. We dropped our bags off at our inn, located just outside of town, and rushed out to capture the rich afternoon light with our cameras.

    Farmers (both men and women) worked the fields with their hoes. Occasionally children ran up to us, squealing ...

    ... went straight out for a walk. I wasn't impressed with Dali from the start. Its a small town with two main streets, the ubiquitous Renmin Lu (Peoples street) and Foreigner St. Which kind of gives you an idea of what the place is like. It's just full of westerners bumming round town, working in bars, selling t-shirts or just juggling in the street. Certain illegal smoke-able substances are available here which explains why people ...

In case I will find the location of the tomb this could possibly be used as a tool for organizing some events between Britain and Yunnan. So to all you British enthusiasts of orchides and such, do not nominate the candidates for the George Forrest award yet, I'm just about to pick it up in a ...
