Wow. That’s the pre-olympic era.
What did it feel like for you? and how did the Chinese accept you? Having a foreign student was probably not very common back then… I heard American friends describe that in rural areas during those years, there were locals checking to see if they’re real.
Well let me know when you make plans to go! Who knows, we might meet in China, of all places 🙂
I haven’t been to Kunming. It’s also on my list- together with the rest of Yunnan. I traveled in Guilin-Yangshuo, Xian, Hangzhou, and in the outskirts of Beijing. Loved them all but my favorite place was probably Huangshan. That was one divine experience.
