ESL teachers may not be the best to advise on university life. BUT we can give better insight into the rigours of academic writing and study ethics than people who never went.

Don't assume it is only the 'privileged kids' who get to university overseas. We had a student from a Naxi village, and all of her family were farmers. Some kids are on scholarship, others have families who have saved every penny all of their lives to help the family break out of the poverty trap.

Something to consider. If you are retired with money to invest, don't even consider buying. For much less than a mortgage, you can rent somewhere nice. If you get bored or decide you don't like the place, you can up sticks. You can even find short-term rentals, if you offer more monthly rent. This would be a good way to see more of China.


No results found.


It will probably live much longer than its peers, which will end up in the soup.
As the goat seems to be supporting itself and getting around on two legs, there would be little need for the support wheels.

In the outlying areas of Kunming, Guandu and southwards, and out to the airport,elevated tracks have been used.Elevated tracks have been used, but if you already have a developed city then tearing down existing buildings, in many areas, can be controversial and expensive. If you go underneath you leave intact the destinations that people want to travel to.



Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.


Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.

Mae culpa

I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.

I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.

Lots of nice big brand performance bikes but not good for those of us on a budget.
