Calama to Santiago
Fantastic that you entered the Atacama through the high altitude backdoor from Bolivia. But when you flew from Calama to Santiago did you look out the left side of the plane and were lucky enough to see the scores of volcanoes all in a line?

Sadly the sun had already set, so not much in terms of views. Did see some incredible visuals of the Andes when I flew out of Santiago towards Paraguay later on in my journey.

Starting day/sleeping bag
Hi, thanks a lot for your article. I'm planning to go to Wu Wei Si very soon, for a week. Can we start living there and training there in any day? I might arrive on Monday. What time is best to arrive? Also do we need to bring our own sleeping bag? Thanks a lot for the help.

When I went it seemed as though you could head up there during daylight with no specific days to begin training. I remember there being plenty of warm blankets in the dorm.

There's so much to go back to Peru for...I did the short introductory visit and only a small little chunk of it (probably the most touristy chunk!)

Wu Wei Si
Hello, soon i will be making my way to China to study Tai Chi. Most likely Wu Wei Si temple, Dali. Hopefully for 6-12 months. I have a few questions for which answers i couldn't find on the web. 1. VISA.   I've heard it is relatively easy to get 1 month tourist visa, and then maybe extend it for up to a year.   Will Wu Wei Si provide me with the letter of acceptance once i'm there ? And will i be able to extend it in Dali ? And is it expensive?   Better yet, how could i get a letter of acceptance as both the invitation letter and proof of accomodation before i apply for the Chinese visa, but without going through an agent ?   Like maybe from some other temple or school ?    I'm on supertight budget, agents are usually expensive. But it would be nice, if i could get a 1 year visa, or at least 3-6 months before i go there. As far as i know its the same price, no matter how long the visa, but i'm not sure how easy that would be.   Any tips on that, please ? 2. SHOES.   Can't i buy them over there, like in the temple or in Dali ? How do the monks get theirs ? 3. SOCKS.   Since i'm In Chiang Mai Thailand, and thick cotton socks ( like the sports type ) are nowhere to be found, i could only find very thin cotton or synthetic ones. Will i easily find them in Dali ? How do the monks get theirs ? 4. COFFEE.   It will be hard to start the day so early without one. I have a little electric water boiler, will i be able to use that by the charging station ? If not, could i use a camping stove ? 5. RATES.   Do they have some long term stay special rate scheme ? 6. INTERNET.   Is it possible/easy to get a chinese sim card with a data package to have some internet access without going to Dali ? (doesn't need to be fast/reliable). 7. MONEY.   I'm guessing Atm's in Dali would provide, right ? ( I was in Iran a few years back, and only Iranian bank cards worked, easy to get stuck.. )   Thanx a buch for any info. entity•°⊙ [ you can call me dex, if you need to call me something.. ]

I would think it'd be best to contact the Chinese Embassy closest to you. It would all most likely depend on your nationality. Back then, as a Canadian, I was able to extend my visa twice, and I had a total of 3 months in the end. Not sure if you can get exemptions or extensions for being a student.

Your photos are so expressive and beautiful! How lucky to have a local take you around their country... I enjoyed your adventures, and although I felt bad for your dad on the horse ride, I did laugh a bit :) Cheers, Ren

Women and men intimacy ?
Quick question. What's the definition of intimacy in this context. Like, does it count as intimate if it's a man and a woman talking alone in an open area? (I'm just not sure about the culture there and how they define intimacy)
5th August 2017

Intimacy
From what I understood, it would appear that intimacy was defined as public or private displays of affection. Simply talking to a member of the opposite sex was completely fine.
