@Alien if you cannot stop people from driving there cars 1-2 blocks to the store to buy a carton of milk how are you going to stop people from flying. Airlines are big business and china is spending big money on new airports so i do not see airline travel slowing anytime soon. I walk, ride my bike for groceries and take bus from North to Nanya shopping mall for work, and only take car as a last resort, but i will not stop flying to USA once a year to see my family.
Friend was given aerosol last year for bad bruise on leg and had allergic reaction to it. Ended up with bad rash and open sores. Doctor gave him something which was no help. Cleared up with hydrocortisone cream i gave him.
It would seem to make sense that your new high speed rail line would not open until the new station to serve it and others is ready for service. If memory serves me right the the high speed trains need different gates for boarding than standard trains. The trains board very quickly through numerous gates.
Interesting how nicely the cars are lined up in that picture. Can you imagine the same scene here in Kunming.
blobbles, i know raccoons can carry rabies, think high rate was something told to us as kids so we would stay clear of them. Just know that wild raccoons are not over friendly so if one approaches should probably leave alone or get away from it. Not sure if i have ever seen one in daytime. Very nocturnal.
Live in the north and ride my bike almost everyday. Last year in my hour long rides i use to see police everywhere. Frequently saw police giving tickets for illegally parked cars. I did not ride for a couple of months this fall while we were moving a little further north and just started riding 2 weeks ago. For example today i rode for 11/2 hours and saw 2 policeman. Did not see one squad car. Last year i could ride for a hour and rarely be concerned about getting hit and this past 2 weeks i have been almost hit several times every day. My wife does not want me ride anymore because she says it is no longer safe to ride bike in kunming. Also noticed the policeman that use to sit on 2nd ring road ramps to keep scooters and motorcycles off the elevated sections are no longer there. As a result have seen several illegal vehicles on 2nd ring road during rush hour.
Have heard that if you travel on Chinese New Years day the buses and trains are almost empty and traffic is good. Problem could be finding a room at a reasonable rate in Dali.
Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.
To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.
Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
