I left Yangshuo to head west to Kunming where I was to visit with my friend Liam. I met Liam in Busan, where we were both couchsurfing with the same host. From the minute we met, we hit it off like old friends or lost relatives and I was excited to get to spend time with him again. Truthfully, I wasn't wowed by Kunming at first. I mean, it's sort of a typical chinese big city except it doesn't have the sites that Beijing, Shanghai, or Xi'an (for example) have. But in time, and partly with Liam's guidance, the city grew on me a little bit more.
One of my first dishes in town. Liam suggested getting Korean, something I always enjoy eating. As you may know from previous posts, jajangmen is one of my favorite korean/chinese dishes. I was excited to get it here, especially since it was raining outside and on rainy days with Mr Kim in Korea, we'd go for this dish.
Kunming's famous over the bridge noodles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossing_the_bridge_noodles
This was a before dunking in the ingredients.
Halloween costumes. Liam, clearly the guy from Clockwork Orange. Me? well, I through together this costume quick. I was supposed to be an old chinese grandmother. It's probably a bit funnier if you live in china and see these old lady's always wearing the same type of clothes, walking the same way (hands behind the back and hunched) and usually sweeping up something or another regardless if sweeping is needed.
