@yankee most of the people reading these forums were not even born yet in 1975. I was a young man then and i can tell you things have changed a lot. In 1975 i would not have voted for a black president and i voted for Obama twice. In 1975 i was still leery of some of my black college team mates. This ignorance was not a result of my parents attitudes. I was fortunate to raise my 3 boys to not see the color of ones skin and today am very proud when i attend one of their functions at the color and cultural diversity of their dearest friends.
When i first came to China it was for a change and to push myself out of my safety zone. I was shocked to quickly realize how many attractive middle aged woman were interested in me. I eventually married a woman i consider to be very attractive for her age but she informed me no chinese man would ever want to marry her again because of her age, divorce, and she had a daughter. I am sure many so called white men have had similar experiences. I must also add i was initially surprised at how many times i was asked to marry woman here, only to have them disappear after they found out i was not rich.
No results found.
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.
Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.
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.
Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.
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.
