Kunming likes to party

Ivan, Jennifer and I woke early on November 6, 2008.  We were taking a bus from Dali to Kunming, China.  We had breakfast and then we walked to town.  We went to the travel agency.  It turned out that the 9:10 am bus was broken.  The next bus would leave at 10:30 am.  Ivan wanted […]


Massages and Pizza in Dali

We woke up on Tuesday, November 4, 2008 in Dali.  We went to get breakfast at the guesthouse.  It was good.  We switched to the Song room before heading out.  We rented bicycles.  We went with an English couple (who we’ve seen in Chengdu and Mt. Emei) and a guy to the Three Pagodas.  It […]


Staying at Mama’s

Ivan woke up early on November 1, 2008.  He had breakfast and then left at 8:30 am.  He was trekking up the Tiger Leaping Gorge with two backpackers who were also staying at Mama’s.  Ivan said he wasn’t sure about the weather.  So, he’d be back tonight or tomorrow night.  Jennifer and I slept for […]


Lovely Lijiang

We arrived in Panzhihua around 8 am on October 30, 2008.  We took a long taxi ride to the bus station.  We bought bread, bananas and dried tofu for breakfast.  We got on a bus heading to Lijiang.  It was going to be a 7 hour ride.  We were the only ones on the bus.  […]


Climbing Mt. Emei and a Scary Monkey

Ivan, Jennifer and I checked out of the Teddy Bear Hotel on October 28, 2008.  I wish I could have taken Ted traveling with us.  We’re off again to another adventure.  All this moving around takes a lot out this cute monkey!  We put our luggage in the luggage storage room.  They lent us walking […]


Spicy Opera

We walked to the Wenshu Monastery on Sunday, October 26, 2008 from Sim’s. It was a nice area to walk around in.  We saw some great relics, a garden and halls. There was some great big statues inside.  We went to find the teahouse.  It’s bottomless tea.  There are guys who walk around and refill […]


Panda Garden

Our train arrived at 2:30 pm in Chengdu on October 24, 2008.  It was thirty minutes early.  We were going to get picked up from somebody from the hostel.  We got a taxicab to the hostel instead of waiting for the ride.  We checked in at Sim’s Cozy Garden Hostel.  This hostel is really big.  […]


A Monkey good time!

We had some lunch at the 7th Heaven Cafe on October 22, 2008.  We then walked around town.  Ivan was looking for a place called Monkey Jane’s.  It’s a rooftop bar.  We finally found it.  It has a sign but it’s a little hard to see.  We decided to chill here for a little while.  […]


Mud Bath, Cooking and a Light Show

We went to 7th Heaven cafe for breakfast on October 19, 2008.  Ivan and Jennifer had omelets.  I had a banana pancake.  We were going to rent a moped for the day.  The place to rent mopeds and bicycles was right next to the cafe.  We ate outside.  Ivan and Jennifer kept getting bugged by […]


Monkey traveling upside-down near a cave

Ivan, Jennifer and I went to the Reed Flute Cave in Guilin on October 17, 2008.  Right when you walk into the area, you get pestered with people trying to sell you books, postcards or a bamboo ride.  Ivan said later to one lady.  For some reason they kept bugging Ivan and not Jennifer.  Most […]
