Ethnic conflicts in China

This-is-a-long-shot-filter: I'm just beginning to do a study of Muslims in China, a subject I find extremely interesting. Specifically, I'm looking at the Hui minority, histories of violence among Muslims in China, current ethnic tensions between the Hui and other ethnic identities, and conflict between the Hui and the Chinese government. Looking for personal accounts, opinions, and thoughts that can lead me further into research. [more inside]

What should we do for two weeks in China?

My boyfriend and I will be visiting my dad in China for two weeks at the end of October, beginning of November. I've been twice before (my dad has lived there for the past 12 years), but this will be my boyfriend's first time. We'd like a good mix of city and rural areas, and are tentatively planning four days in Shanghai, four in Beijing, four in Guilin, and four in Yunnan. However, we're open to other suggestions, so what do you think? Too much time in one place, not enough in another? Is there another must-see area? What should we do while we're in those places? Any ideas are welcome!

I'm interested in hearing experiences from others that have worked with "Fixers" when setting up or actually out on a shoot.

I'm Leaving For China With No Plans: I Need Some Plans!

My son wants me to ride trains and hike with him, starting this weekend, all over China. He says he wants to leave Beijing (I arrive exhausted on Thursday night) on Sunday and go, over the next 17 days, to visit Xuchang, Xi'an, Chengdu, Jiuzhaigou, Kunming, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Guilin, Yangshou, Suzhou, and FengHuang; then back to Beijing so I can go home. Can we do it? We have no itinerary. Shouldn't this be pared down? Where should we go? What travel websites can I use on my iPhone or at internet cafes? How can I find cheap airfare within China, with no advance reservations, and do it on the fly? This post is as "quick and dirty" as is my planning. Now, I have to get back to packing ultralight for monsoon territory. I'm too old for this, but am excited! [more inside]

Where can I buy plain white old style Chinese t-shirts?

Some years ago I bought a pair of Chinese t-shirts from a charity shop. Plain white short sleeved with a slightly scooped neck. The neck and sleeves where sewn (felled) rather than knitted and the fabric was thinner than the usual western t-shirt. The small label was woven and stated something like Two Chickens Brand. They were ubiquitous in the Mao cap era of China but, try as I may, I cannot trace an internet supplier or a bricks and mortar in the UK/London.
