Now this is public service - thanks, you guys.

Where is that market (the photo with all the cheese)?


does anyone know where is an exchange(currency) store to open these days...i'm in north

Why is it that business run by foreigners are those that are closed! When they reopen they complain about poor business... A joke

@Nagam: would you rather they force all their Chinese staff to work through the holiday?

For foreigners here without families to go back to, the Spring Festival is a bit inconvenient; for everybody, the travel situation is annoying. However, I still really like the idea that, once a year, the population says 'Enough already! Stop everything, we're going home to be with our families, everything else can be on hold.'

Pizza da Rocco is listed as having normal hours, so I went down there a few days ago, but it's no longer where it used to be. Does anyone know if they moved? Or did they close up?

@bluegrass14: second floor of the new bird and flower market development (zhengyifang/qianwangjie)? I know that Rocco sold the place to a local wine dealer a while ago, but haven't followed it since.
