Preparing for Burma

Fancy hotel picnic with REAL BREAD.

Fancy hotel picnic with REAL BREAD.

In Tengchong we got couped up for a few days. Zev came down with a bit of a flu in Tengchong, but things turned around quickly. I’m so glad he’s feeling better. Zev’s fever broke after a night of mumbling in his sleep, the giant rat tiny mouse thumping around our hotel room finally went to sleep at 4:30am, and the electricity came back on later that morning.

The next morning we hit the road. After an overnight bus ride featuring a symphony of snoring and coughing, we arrived in Kunming. We were thrilled to bump into a Carrefour on our way from the bus station to the hotel, and splurged on lots of yummy Western food. We also splashed out on a nice upmarket business hotel. Our hotel picnic featured a baguette, President butter, real American cheddar cheese, and mustard. Le sigh, it was the greatest turnaround ever witnessed. A hot shower and some bread will really mend any problems in life.

Greatest picnic ever. CHEEESE, glorious cheese...

The rest of the day was spent roaming around Kunming, shipping souvenirs home, shopping (got a new iPhone case!), and snacking on boiled peanuts, a fried chicken sandwich, and an ice cream cone. I don’t know what Zev ate, but I conquered those treats by myself…oink oink indeed.

  1. I’m currently IN America and that smorgasbord looks amazing to me. Must track down bread immediately…

    Glad Zev is feeling better! And I love the new iPhone cover.

    All my love 🙂
