Menghai (勐海) Town, Xishuangbanna Prefecture

Menghai is probably the second biggest town in Xishuangbanna after Jinghong. It is a popular transportation hub for the western part of the prefecture. You can either ride a bike to visit tribes on the north or take a bus to the far places like Xiding and other attractions such as “Damenglong” and Manfeilong pagodas and the Octagon temple of Jingzhen.

We’ve passed through and had a few hours to walk through the city and to visit some of the Internet cafe. Feels very hospitable and extremely hot. Feels almost at the end of the worlds (not considering Xiding and nearby villages, of course). When you are in the city – just walk. You will find cool graffitis, lonely Buddhist temples, local canal views and even some garbage :)

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    Transient Living: The Craft and the Craftsmen of Denver, Colorado

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
