Would love to similar thread on Bhutan! You seem to be a teacher if I gathered right. That sounds like the only occupation a foreigner can have in a place like Bhutan!

Ten years down memory lane, retrieving anything significant for a T-Log is nearly an impossible task. Nevertheless, though it was a short stint, was definitely fun filled, simple and stress-free period of my life.
  • The journey along narrow winding roads between Phuentsholing and Thimphu
  • The smell of “Doma” all around
  • The occasional drive to Wangduephodrang or Punakha or Phobjikha for friendly soccer tournaments to be part of,
  • The taste of “Suja”
  • The hot but my favourite “Emadatsi”
  • The lovely and noisy Archery matches Bhutanese enjoy playing the whole day
are only a few, if I recollect.

Though the city is too congested, it is fun walking along those very well laid out payments at evenings. It’s wet most part of the year, otherwise I love my scroll, time permitted, until I get lost with the skylines around. At times I get lucky enough ending up discovering places like these.

Visiting Chongqing again ? You really must love Sichuan food

Lovely photos as before. Its a timely reminder to demand more China travelogues from you. Maybe ice skating in Tianjin ?? Or a train journey to Urumqi ??

Thanks !
Blame it on the tight schedule most part of the year. When available anything close to 10 days, always flew back home.
Was contemplating on a short trip to Hainan since long.

There is a decent little park around a Budha temple adjacent to where I live these days. There also is a small lake surrounding this temple. Beautiful waters and fresh air.

Constructions, constructions and more constructions - a never ending phenomenon seen here, all these years.

From an evening stroll near my apartment at Chongqing.

Fantastic diary you got there, M35!
I was in need of some information on life in China and how is it for an Indian to work there. From your blog, I got a decent idea about the day to day stuff.

By the way, could you please help me with following queries:

1. What type of visa one has to apply for 6 months stay for working at customer location?

2. Any info on cost of living in Yanliang (next to Xi´an)?

3. Are Indian citizens allowed to freely roam within China?

4. How is the current sentiment towards us desis (heard some resistance is there due to current Govt. policies)?

Thanks in advance!
