Given your subject of study, it might give extra dimension to the scientific side of it, if you were to study a school in both Yunnan and a coastal first tier city.
You could pursue the entry through Beijing or Shanghai, get some local education people interested, and then use that as a gateway for fieldtrip to Yunnan.
In best scenario they may even pay it in name of poverty reduction or education improvements in rural part of China.
Yes, i contacted the person in Shanghai and will have a look if she is able to help me and in what way.
so ya told the person in shanghai you would really be somewhere else. well i guess you blowed that one then.
People shouldn´t be that judgy when they don´t have a clue what the content of the mail I sent to the person in Shanghai is.
Don't expect too much sense on GoKunming
I´m just shocked that people who don´t know what I wrote say "i guess you blowed that one then". Because I never said that I will told the shanghai person "I really want to be somewhere else". but YES, I told the person that I planned to go to Pu'er doing fieldwork there, guess why? Exactly, my supervisor told me to attach my actual proposal. and guess what? I wrote about Pu'er. So I can´t say "my plan is to go to shanghai, because from the first minute I starte my PhD I wanted to go to Shanghai".
So I would be very thankful, if the people here wouldn´t be that judgy and unfriendly, because I really try to be friendly though. I am just a german girl who wanted to have advices what else I could do.
And this isn´t against all the nice people here who answered and gave me helpful hints!
This is going to sound bad, but anyway...
I'm pretty sure that I wasn't the only one with a mental image of a foreign boy wanting to get back to his Chinese girl in Puer.
Such presumption creating suspicion of your real motives may have prompted unfriendlines in some posters - among other things of course.
Not that something like that couldn't be case still, but statistics speak otherwise.
So we can just stop discussing. I don´t have a german boyfriend, I don´t have a chinese boyfriend. I just wanted to ask for some advices how I could manage going to pu'er for my fieldwork. Not more.
Kaddi so sorry you had to put up with this sort of nonsense.
It's getting more and more difficult for foreigners to do anything here without jumping over hoops.
