Making Travel Plans

We have been home for 3 months now. Travel planning has started. Our latest thinking is to get a 6-month return ticket, Raleigh to Shanghai, since we still have some stuff (e.g. clothes, books) to drag back. We'd leave at the end of Oct/beginning of Nov.

Tentative Itinerary

Nov: China: In the south, most likely.

Dec: Burma: We have to return before the masses begin to descend. John wants to go to Myitkyina.

Jan-Feb: India: Can we last 2 months? India is still the most appalling and fascinating country for us.

Mar: Nepal: I don't think I am capable of trekking because of altitude and general fitness. Don't know how long we'll want to spend in Nepal.

Apr: China: Lijiang and Dali in Yunnan, finally?
