100% cream baby

Ever since we've been in the northern part of Yunnan province and Tibet we've noticed the mass amounts of yogurt being consumed by everyone. We decided to try it to see what the fuss was about in Zhongdian... and yep, now we're hooked. Their yogurt is soooooo good. We found out that it's because it is made with 100% cream. Yes, that's the way to do it. We met a Singaporean girl who was a marketing rep for Danone in China and she said low fat yogurt just does not sell here, they want the real fattening stuff. I like their way of thinking.

Here in Lhasa, we've seen many yogurt stands on street corners and decided to try some home made stuff. Now, that is GOOD yogurt. You can even add sugar to it if you want ... which we did of course. We can never go back to that low fat stuff we used to have in TO. What were we thinking!?

Lhasa... Sounds like Lassi - an Indian yogurt drink. I wonder if there's a connection there?

btw - I really like your blog. What a great way to document a trip! And I love your pictures! It's inspired Krista and I to take an emergency vacation to Costa Rica (but I wish it were Tibet).

Hey Pierre! Emergency vacation to Costa Rica doesn't sound too shabby at all! Although it would have been so much fun if you guys could have made it to Tibet! If you two decide to take another emergency vacation, make it back to India or Africa :)
