- China's Beers: a belch-laden taste test
Dali and Lhasa beers are still ok, but are hard to find in Chengdu. For the rescue there is the Asahi sold in bottles at the 7-11s.

- Plans for new Chengdu airport confirmed
we're at 30 million passengers now, and that's before all these new international connections kick in. Shuangliu can't build anymore runways.
at a 10% annual growth rate chengdu'll reach the 80 million capacity within a decade. so the question is not "Is it necessary?", but more scary "Will it be enough?" or will they build yet another even bigger airport somewhere else.

Gramophones are kind of rare, but you see them in some vintage/retro style places at times. I haven't seen them for sale anywhere but I'd try the two markets, where I have seen old records for sales

Chengdu > KDK
I've only been there twice and still not sure what to think.
The Döner meat tastes pretty original which came as a big surprise (don't get the burger bread, go for the pita or the wrap).
The sauces could be a bit more aromatic and there should be more chili to put on the Döner.
Even if you insist the pre-cooked sausages are not grilled at all, so the whole idea of the Curry Sausage and grilled sausage gets lost.
Fries were great the first time, but soggy the second time.
Waffles were way to sweet and too much.
Haven't tried the ice-cream and the Turkish Ayran yoghurt yet.
All in all a good start, but there is room for improvement.
Prices are very low (I'd even say some stuff is way too cheap to be substainable).
Too bad it's a bit off the average laowai radar (and not that easy to find), but I'm sure Germans and Turks will pilgrimage to the Döner.

Chengdu > International Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition Park
Taxi from Chengdu's south should've been RMB43. Driver managed to get lost somewhere and run the meter to RMB100! We settled for 60 at the end.
Taxis back don't want to run the meter and ask for RMB80! WTF!
With public transport it takes about 1.5h to get there or back if they have special non-stop shuttle buses to Jinsha that is.
Oh the place itself. Well the exhibition/museum is a joke, not worth going.
