Kunming

Kunming was a great city just to wander around & hang out really.....there are no major tourist sights as such, but a real big bonus was that the temperature there was so cool which was a real welcome. We stayed in the area close to the University so it had a great studenty/cafe culture feel,...

SMS, texti, short letter, text message

“Chinglish” is so amazing because it often really just literally translates how people speak and write. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the text messages I receive from my cell phone service provider and advertisers. Sometimes it’s unclear who is sending the message....

A Return to Blogging

Well, after a half-a-year hiatus, I have decided to come back to the blogging sphere, hopefully as much as I can for my last month and a half here in Kunming. Over my time here, a lot has happened. I will not regale you with hashing out the details of life. Rather, I'm going to just jump right...

The Neighborhood

My roommate got a really nice new camera, so he let me have fun with it around our neighborhood. Some pictures are taken by him or others. I actually attempted to take pictures of people so that you all could get a sense of the local population on a regular Sunday afternoon. We started off with...

Little Sun

This past week, the temperature dropped and it has been freezing. It’s only been around 0ºC at the coldest, but the problem is that the buildings are not equipped to protect against the weather. Kunming is known as the City of Eternal Spring, and apparently it never got cold in the winters until...

The Chef's Son

My roommates and I often go to a restaurant down the street from our house. Since the first night we went, the chef befriended us. He often would bring us a free dish, usually pickled cabbage or fried cheese or something interesting, and sometimes would sit a minute with us and chat. A couple...

ducks and broken waterpipes

After 2 drive days we arrived in the centre of Kunming having got lost for 2 hours until almost 3am in the morning. We checked into a hostel and enjoyed a comfy nights sleep before driving about 2 hours out of the city to a village and all the climbing. we found a beach area near the river and...

life in Kunming...

I’m starting to get into a routine with going to class, studying, knowing where to get decent food, hanging out with my roommates and getting to know our classmates. Classes are challenging but I think I’m getting used to my teachers and learning how to prepare better so I understand what is...

Chinese hospitals; or, I don’t have swine flu

Well, after being sick for pretty much the past two weeks, I think I am finally getting better. What started as a head cold turned into what seems to have been a flu, which then seems to have given way to another flu. Basically, this means that I have gotten pretty familiar with medical...
