Before changing continents to America, I’m lingering for another 2.5 weeks in Asia. I’m still flying from one city of angels to the other. But I added a stopover in the Chinese province of Yunnan. I wanted to see Yunnan twice before, and the 3rd time was a charm.
When flying from Bangkok to Los Angeles with China Eastern airlines, a stopover in Yunnan is free of charge. I already had the Chinese visa from before the gorgeous love journey in Vietnam. The Yunnan stopover was therefore a nobrainer.
Yunnan is supposed to be the most beautiful province in China. This is evident, even in continuous rain. I am particularly interested in the mountains in the northwest. In Shangri-La on the Tibetan plateau, I want to do a kora and drink one, two or preferably five Yak butter teas.
- fast food
- social distance
- living expenses
I need to slowly acclimatize to the altitude, the further I get to the top of the world. And I need to slowly acclimatize to the western civilization, the further I get to North America.
To be completely honest:
I am very reluctant to leave gentle, smiling Asia and enjoy every day of extension…
