The Chapati Stand - Mandalay, Myanmar Burma

The Chapati Stand at 27th and 82nd was hoppin' in the early evening when I shot this video. The ladies in the back roll the dough and the two guys in front grill em up and toss them in the basket.

We were waiting for our take away order which is being filled by the guy taking chapatis out of the basket and stuffing them into a plastic bag.

Tasty! We went back the following night for more - this time "sit-down" on the sidewalk.

Tulou - Nanping County, Fujian, China

Spent the last several days in Fujian Province checking out the very cool round and square earthen buildings called "tulou". Some are hundreds of years old, some are just 40 years old, and most are found in clusters of 3 to 10.

Back in China

We are back in China after a long travel day yesterday through 4 countries/territories (Nepal, Thailand, Macau, and China), accumulating 6 entry and exit stamps - a record for us - in which no luggage was lost, no personal items were confiscated, no connections were missed, no extra money was spent, and John did not go hungry on the Thai Air Asia flight which only sells food and water - no free nourishment.

Here in Zhuhai we have a pretty good Wi-Fi connection so I'm posting photos from Nepal here.
