Kunming next! Brain UPDATE!

When we arrived Kunming we headed directly to a hot pot restaurant where some friends already had eaten (buss was a little late) and so hungry as I was I took my chopsticks and started to move around in the pot to see what goodies I could find. The first thing I found was pigs brain! How about that! Now I tried that and grasshopper. I wonder what more strange food I’ll have tried before returning to Sweden. (It was a strange feeling to have meat and other eatable stuff in the same pot as a big brain.. but I was hungry!).

Right now I’m on the floor in a smaller hotel in Kunming – when we arrived I wasn’t allowed to check in because I was foreigner. Smaller hotels in China often has this very strange rule. Well, the place was pre-paid by a friend so after much friendly debating and paper showing we came in. And why on the floor? Because I found that a neighbor to the hotel has an open wifi!! So a little bit of internet for me, but if i move it’s gone. hehe.

Old: Tomorrow we’re heading for Kunming, leaving the fresh Dali for some smog. jaij! Not sure if I will be able to work online there but hopefully I’ll be able to. My mail works again too. Wonder what happened. had something like 140 unread messages. aaaargh.

Oh, and did you notice that you can upload a photo when you make a comment? That way you can ask specific questions about your own shots or any of mine redeveloped etc. Very cool stuff! Please try in this post if you have any shots you wanna share!

    why on the floor? Don’t Chinese sit on the floor? Here in Japan this custom is going away, nowadays ppl are persuaded of Western style living. What about China and Kunming?

    The other thing I realised is no abacus (soroban) anymore, which is a pity, because most Japanese (including engineers) can’t calculate really w/o soroban!

    Then I can say, Chinese food you eat would be a challenge for me, in this case less information is certainly more, and let taste make a final decision :)

    I am sorry about that. I made a lot of mistakes when I was trying to post them.

    they were taken in Tokyo… thanks! but I cant make them as nice as your photos yet though.. =(

    I don’t think Chinese sit on the floor.
    and I think the reason why Japanese sit on the floor, maybe it has something to do with frequent earthquakes

    I accidentally touched my DP2 built-in lens and filter…
    it gave some finger print mark on my lens…
    and when I wipe it, it gave some wiping marks that is so irritating. difficult to get rid of.

    can you write about lenses on your blog…
    about how to clean lenses in professional way, solution brands, etc
    directions of wiping the lens (round clockwise, anti-clockwise, one way horizontally vertically) I believe directions of wiping may give some difference in cleaning lenses, also pressure.
    and how to clean the corner of the lens.

    also I read about some lens myths, is it true or untrue according to your experience.

    but if it is totally unrelated to your blog, then just forget about this.

    Thank You,
