    were in china i can find a remote monestery to stay and trein kung fu with the monks?

    From my experience it will be very difficult to find a peaceful monastery to train kung fu as everything in China is very commercialised. I would like to hear from someone who thinks different. Your best bet is to stay at the Monastery and to find a local Kung Fu teacher to train you privately. I would recommend you to stay at the Mt Wutashan ( Mt Wutai) in ShanxI Province – it’s a UNESCO site, have 53 Monasteries all together and its one of the four sacred Buddhist Mountains. almost 7 years ago

    Any tips for Harbin, China?

    Do sightseeing between 1100- 1500 Wrap camera as yourselves - otherwise it will freeze. Visit St Sophia Church and Central Street ( Harbin was part of Russia ) Go to the Siberian Tiger Reserve ( avoid lunch hour as they feed them with live chickens) Check swimmers at the frozen Songhua River almost 7 years ago
