Watch this site for the daily diary of a wandering restaurateur in China.
Other than the arrival and departure information, this itinerary is only my best guess as to the places we will visit. We are making this trip up as we go, and I look forward to unexpected destinations and unplanned adventures. So relax and enjoy it with us.
The daily diary often gets posted in a rather abbreviated format just due to time pressures. As other thoughts occur, I will frequently update or re-edit previously posted pages. (Must be the author in me.) Often I will even go back and add photos ... so don't think you have "seen it" if you've only seen it once!
All this is just to say that if you find the running commentary interesting, you might want to re-check some of the past days' write-ups for additions. Understand, too, that I have no idea how easy it will be to find an Internet connection in the backwoods of China, so while the diary may be written every day, I am rarely able to upload it every day. Have patience.
