It all happened by chance that I ended up in Yunnan, in the capital actually, Kunming. But from day one, I knew I had come to the right place.
Before I came to Kunming, I read a lot about China and often thought the experiences I read about could not be matched. I often thought I'd only travelled to Europe and could never know as much as all those travellers to China. Still, opportunity knocked and I answered.
