You need an ID to open a bank account in China too, but unless the court makes an order the bank won't release the details of the account owner.

I dont know where but I read that there NGOs that do ID free Aids tests. Try to find them. As a laowai the government will kick you out if they know you have aids.

Getting a lawyer to go with you to report the case to the police is a nice thing to do as it may hinder this person doing the same thing again. Don't expect to get any money back.

You may also ask your consulate to help you report the case if you want to save on legal fees. You will need to make the report in person in Kunming. The consulate can at least help you to find the location of the foreign affairs police department.



When I called the Water company they told me that Yunlong supplied 40% of the cities water supply. She also told me that they were bringing in water from the east and west of Kunming. I think this issue will last longer than 15 days.

Maybe the police will ask for bigger and heavy guns to combat the more aggressive thieves. So instead of one bullet hitting a public bus it will be several.

Tasers are a much better option as the next step.



when we renovated we took our workmen to B&Q to select materials from their excellent range if samples. Then with that list in hand we went to the construction market near Mingbo bridge and got the same materials at either half or one third of the B&Q price.

It's a good place for window shopping.
