Cool photo's guys, as always. I like how in the night Market 'grubs galore' one you can just about see the 'penis' sign sticking out on the left hand side.

This is a great picture, wish I'd have got one like this when we were in Xi'an.

Breakfast in Xian
We visited Xian last year and stayed at the Sofitel, very first class. We had their full breakfast including pancakes. However, they came without syrup, so I asked for some. They weren't sure what I meant so it took a few minutes to describe what I wanted. Anyway, although China has come a long way to meeting the needs of it's western guests, there are still times when our cultures don't understadn each other.

Thank you! :)
Is it just where you take the photos or, have the places you've visited all been so clean - no litter on the streets??? Incredible - sort of makes me ashamed of us Canadians... Joyce :))))

I ate some food from that market and I still wonder what type of meat I was actually eating while there.

I quite enjoyed Xi'an. I went to a Pizza Hut there, and you honestly should try that in China. But just for fun, order a pizza, an appetizer and a dessert and watch as you have to eat your ice cream before the pizza because everything shows up all at once! That night market was fun, it was my first adventure in bartering with a calculator. I have a tea mug on my desk at the moment from that market.

Terracotta Warriors
OMG!!! How wonderful to be able to see the actual terracotta warriors in person. They are one of my favorite 'finds'. We were to get a few here in Calgary this year for the Chinese 100 years but it was cancelled, so your photos will be my closest shot to the real thing.

I've been there!
I have a close up shot of the "No Jumping! Be Careful the Safe!" sign. I climbed each of the peaks back in 2006.

Happy Belated Birthday!
Hey guys, and Happy Birthday Kathie!!! Amazing photos. Lindsey and I are very jealous as we have really wanted to see the bordering counties of the Himalayas for some time and have been talking about it lately since the wedding is all done and we're back to our home lives. When you leave China if you want to see any wedding photos there are a few on facebook; we had an amazing time and lucked out with the weather. It was great to see everyone together and having fun. Looks like the trip has been amazing! I hope you guys are both well and enjoying the adventures and experiences! Take care, Scott & Linds

The Mountains are Gorgeous
Wow... and Jordan that one shot looks like you leaping to pluck something from the summit. (first attempt?). have you been challenged at all by the local menu's? I haven't seen a lot of beef on the hoof. I know from some of my travels it is better not to ask... Have Fun and be safe. Paul

Spicy meat dish
1. Just how hot were those chillies that I thought were green beans? 2. How loud was the market - sheep, people, etc.? 3. Jordan, you need to take pictures with your right hand, so we can see Kathy's other profile!! Have fun, take pictures, live well and keep sending the blogs - I love them!

In 1987 took the same route .... in my case from Pakistan to Kashgar, then in to Urumuci and walking in the Tien Shan ..... extraordinary experience as stayed with locals in yurt for a week or so! Is the road really surfaced all the way as your pictures show? I've scanned the old slides and they are on my facebook. About to start travels again (Divorced, retied and kids just started at uni.) so trying to get to see what's worthy of trip. Loved N. Pakistan .... people are wonderful and hospitable. Give my love to all in Passu. Passed through in 87, but had stayed a couple of years earlier.) You've some great pictures .... you've probably passed through now but I'm sure my pictures would cause some amusement with locals. John Mawer

Snow already
Hi J&K ... you've hit snow ahead of Calgary (just) and about a week behind Canmore/Banff. We've started a bit of Indian summer but know what is just around the corner. Have fun and travel safe.

W O W!
You two must really love travelling with all the (sometimes) hardships - you both look so radiantly healthy and happy. Thanks for all the great pictures. :))))
