Contact Info

Alright, alright. If you're interested in contacting me, here's my mailing address. Just be aware that letters can take from 1 to 8 weeks to arrive and packages will take 2 to 12 weeks...so don't send me a turkey sandwich, even though I'd really love to eat one.

Bazhou People's Hospital
Renmin Road
Kuerle, Xinjiang

If you'd like to reach me by phone, you can try my home number. You'll probably have to add some sort of code to dial outside of the country before this number, but I'm not quite sure. If you figure it out, let me know and I'll add the information here.

+86 (China's Code) +996 (Korla City Code) +8888330 (My phone number)

If you're going to call, please be aware of the "unofficial" time difference: GMT +6 hours, New York +11 hours, California +14 hours, Hawaii +17 hours. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mexican food? What's that? There's not even anything close over here. They don't even have cheese! In fact, Korla has no ethnic cuisine outside of the various Chinese provinces' food, Uyghur food, and quasi-American style fast food. Someone needs to open a Taco Bell!

I used your picture "Entering Xinjiang on New Year" on my Webpage, together with a link and naming the source. Hope you agree.

I will be visiting Kuerla at the end of next week on a business trip.

Prior to flying to Kuerla, I will be in Urumqi.

How are the internet connections in this area? Is there any high speed service, as I would like to be able to make calls on the Internet.

Hope you are enjoying

Hi, I'm so happy to run into your site! It made me want to laugh and cry stimultaneously. Especially when I came to the part about continually hearing a loud "hello" from somewhere far behind you when walking down the street, and the cravings for a turkey sandwich. Thanks for all this and more. Sincerely, Another American Teaching English Along The Silk Road ~~

I traveled in China last year and enjoyed the trip but of course was glad to get back home. (USA)I met so many that wanted to know anything about the USA and I understood as I had so many questions about China. Loved to see the planting they were doing for 2008 and I hope they keep it after the 2008 games. Your turkey sandwich comment made me laugh as I would have enjoyed one there after 10 days of travel....Huggs to you especially at the Holiday times. Darlene
