I'm off today on another adventure in China. Last year, I visited Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. This year, I'll be journeying south to Yunnan Province, a region that borders Vietnam and Myanmar. For 11 days I'll wander around the province, from jungles to mountains and even the border area with Tibet. Check for posts and pictures sometime in May.
