    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 …

    ... the pagoda originally served as a lookout station and the temple was added to worship for the protection of the citizens of Dali and especially those that lived near the lake itself. We explored up top, took in the wonderful views of the lake and across the way to the Three Pagodas that we had visited the day before, and then slowly made our way back to the boat, casually cruising the dozens of souvenir stands all selling the same assortment of items. It always surprised ...

    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 ...

Until then, there are a lot of great photos from China, with stories attached so ...

    Viewing the eclipse

    ... was beautiful. And it was.

    The moon moved right across the sun to block it, but being of small relative size, it couldn't cover the sun. So what happened, it moved and for a few minutes it was perfectly covering the sun, causing a ring effect. Nice.

    And then it carried on, moving across the sun. And slowly the light came back. And later the sun when down.

    A day of two dusks.
