Friends of ours here in Chengdu made it into the China Daily today! Kris and Stephanie (and little Adalia) were the first people we met here in Chengdu and they helped us get our apartment. At that time they lived in the same building as we do but since then they have moved up to Kangding and opened a guesthouse for travellers and backpackers - Zhilam Hostel. They can help with all kinds of tourist information, trekking and travelling in the Kangding area. Please visit them, they have just had their official opening.

Kristopher Rubesh, 32, cleans up a room in his newly finished Tibetan-style Zhilam Hostel in Kangding, a small town in the Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan province, southwest China, March 24, 2009. Infatuated by the unique Tibetan culture and beautiful natural landscapes in Kangding, the family from Oregon of the United States chose to open a hostel in late 2007. Their dream came true in early 2009 when they became the first foreigners running a hostel in the beautiful valley town Kangding. [Xinhua]
