So I came back to Kunming to spend time with Liam and prepare for my next countries. Little did I know that I'd meet such great friends in Tibet in Adam and Kaja, that I'd change my plans entirely. I spent a month in Kunming and was able to teach yoga, read a lot, relax, have so much fun and in my last days I did some drastic changes. Got new glasses (lost mine in Leshan), got lighter bags to scale down weight and possessions, mailed a huge box of gifts, old bags and other things home, found a pair of sneakers in my size (us 14) thank god! and got a $1.50 haircut. From this and also from doing yoga regularly again, I feel like a new person as I leave Kunming and venture down south to Xixuangbanna and then Vietnam to meet up with Adam and Kaja, a much poorer person but new and refreshed.
Possible the best don't poop here sign. Though down the street there is a sign that may be better. it says don't poop as the pipes are old and can't handle it and someone wrote in asking about diarrhea. and then someone else asked did they mean the good or bad diarrhea. and then someone else asked about clarifying what is good diarrhea. think you maybe need to see it
yoyo took me here, twice. why twice? because the dish on the left is so freaking good. Er'kuai is a local rice cake type thing. usually eaten on the streets it's in pancake form and wrapped. this is a chopped and fried way (chow er kuai i think it's called) It's pretty damn delicious.
cute tiny dog playing with my shoe. his owner was this random hooched out girl walking around basketball courts with him. I called her Jinu (translates to chicken face girl but means whore) when asking to see her dog, I don't think she heard me...
