Gek with Mui Hua, our hostess in Kunming. She is letting us stay at her’s, a very nice condo in the west of the city.
What was this thing doing in a cultural theme park? I don’t know. Seemed to sum up my impression of China so far. Rapidly relegating it’s culture to museums in order to join the global village. Low culture is being promoted as high culture. We went to see what was billed as a ‘culture show’, Dynamic Yunnan, in Kunming city centre. The dance routines and stage craft bore only a passing reference to their cultural origins. More River Dance than Chinese Dance. Made me yearn for some throat singing and shoulder shaking!!!!!
