Also speaking of tea, we were given special herbs to drink by Dr. Ho. He was a Naxi doctor in a small town outside of Lijiang. He spent more time telling how internationally famous he was than inquiring about our ailments. He brought us articles about himself from the New York Times, and was visited by the National Geographic and Michael Palin PBS travelogue, among many others. He is a great self-promoter who left us with a photocopies sheet of all his accomplishments, including curing an American woman of cancer.
