    Now if you’ve found a venue that suits you and you say, man I definitely want to play here. Next thing you need to find is the right person at that venue that can help you get a show.

    Travel the World With David Chang | Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Trailer | Netflix

    What have I gotten   myself into? It’s, like, hugely multicultural, and the food’s amazing. That’s one of the best things  I’ve ever tasted, really. -You’re my tour guide. -Cheers. -This is a dream. -What is anything? I never know. I just go for it. That’s oil.

It wasn’t until 2008 coming up to the Olympics and 2009 when we had incidents here in Urumqi that that question became something that was commonly asked by travelers heading out to this region. So let me go ahead and answer that question quickly: Is it safe to travel to Xinjiang. YES! Ok…I guess I can’t say that with 100% certainty and I’m sure there’s some liability involved in there so let me qualify that statement just…
