Dear Karen,

We have returned home and thank you for an exquisite holiday, backed by a sate of the art organization.
We have enjoyed all of the visiting, and impressed by all of the local guides. Specially Mr. He in Lijiang, he is great guy, non-intrusive, discreet, honest and vertical person, full of interesting (and sought for) cultural details.

We are ok for all of the meals.I would replace the spicy lunch in XiAn (a nearby village, actually) with one with traditional XiAn muslim food (mutton soup with shredded pancakes etc). It would make the experience more place-related, I guess. However, the spicy lunch was very tasty and we enjoyed a lot the restaurant’s genuine and merry atmosphere. 

Here i would like to share one information (probabaly it is useful for you)--The Foreign Books Book Store on JiuJiang Lu (?) Street. A street full of bookstores, a huge library and this so precious foreign language bookstore. I found here, at a very good price and in a conveniently small format, in English, the complete versions of Chinese classics I was looking for - Journey to the West, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, The Dream of the Red Mansion.

For shopping, at Shanghai, i have bought complete set of bed sheets and some blouses in the factory, but i think they were overprice when i saw similar production at anther shop. We made this exception and we were sorry for the uncomfortable feelings we got.

Over all, it was nice trip, thanks!
