If you are interested in traditional Chinese medicine, the best source of information is Dr. Ho Shi-Xiu, a Naxi nationality physician with a Ph.D from Nanjing University. At over 90 and retired, Dr. Ho lives in Bai Sha village outside of LiJiang in Yunnan province with his wife and son who works with him in retirement. Dr. Ho speaks 5 languages including fluent English, is extremely spry for his age and loves having people come to visit him at his home and small office. 60 Minutes,t.v. program did a segment on him and National Geographics is doing a story on his life. LiJinag located north of Kunming in Yunnan province has become a popular tourist spot located in the mountains at 7000 feet above sea level and a nice cool spot during the hot summer months to visit. Snow Dragon Mountain and Lugu Lake are just two of the places to visit while touring the area. LiJiang is one of my favorite small cities in China which is the home to the Naxi, Dai and Bai nationalities and not far from Dali or the Leaping Tiger Gorge of the upper Yangtze River. In southwest China it is a great place to visit during the heat of the summer or the pleasant days of spring and fall. Be sure to visit his newly opened Museum in the village managed by his son.
