Hello from south of the clouds

Hello everyone, I am Gong from South of the Clouds (Yunnan云南), your third instructor, so excited to meet you all in few days!

I’m living in Dali, Yunnan and have been here for over two decades. It’s still my favorite place in China. I love travel and have had many travel experiences all over China. I’ve worked as a journalist, documentary film maker, anthropology research coordinator, teacher, guide, photographer, calligrapher, farmer, carpenter, coffee grower and roaster, etc.  I have a wide range of interests in different lifestyles and local knowledge, religion, art, cooking, herbal medicine, taiji, qigong, acupuncture, quantum physics, etc. Mostly, I just have a thirst for learning from life experiences. I am really looking forward to this time we’re going to have traveling in China together, and would love to share my knowledge and experiences and learn from all of you!

See you soon!
