    New from China

    Hi all,

    I'm in the Army and currently on my last 5 months of a two-year assignment in Kunming, China. I've been smoking a pipe off and on since college and was lucky enough to link up with a group of expats here who smoke pipes as well. One of them even introduced me to this site. Selection here is a bit limited, but luckily care packages and trips through duty free stores keeps us well stocked.

    Welcome to the forum Jeff and it's nice to hear that you found a few pipers close to hand.

    Thanks. I hadn't smoked a pipe for a few years since I left Iraq so it was good to get back into it after so long. It will definitely be nice, though, to get back to the U.S. and have better access to supplies.

    Welcome to Puff, Jeff. All I can say is WOW! I just looked up Kunming and you are DEEP in country. I have been to Chengdu, and I thought that was pretty far. I will be headed back to Asia in March for a business trip (Korea, Taiwan, and China) but sadly not close enough to bring you any supplies.

    Thanks. I've been smoking cigars just as long as a pipe, and more often too.

    Only the few I brought with me. Most of the places that have cigars here either sell the Chinese "Great Wall" brand or what they think rich business men would want to show off their wealth which means lots of Cubans. It's basically the same selection you'd have at an airport duty-free shop. Cubans are nice but they can't be part of a long-term collection because I'll eventually return to the U.S.

    I have several Gurkha Boers that I brough with me that I have been rationing.
