Actually Schengen visas have never been accepted for the UK. It's not part of the Schengen area. Chinese people need two visas for a European trip that includes the UK. And Ireland is not in the Schengen area either because of its common travel area agreement with the UK.

Thanks Jan. I have a suggestion for the new editor - a regularly updated FAQs and Howto page with addresses of consulates, hospitals and other public buildings, utilities and so on. Maybe there's too much work involved in keeping it up to date but it's worth thinking about.

Ishmael is one of the most mildmannered people in Kunming and the least offensive poster on this site. The only time I've seen him animated is when he complains about new technology and twinky phones as he calls them. But he is regularly downvoted by a pack of readers who object to his left-liberal views.

John's a great man. Not only did he write that fantastic book on the epic journey of northern universities to Kunming but he can also sing the complete works of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Nuclear weapons, great power rivalry, drilling for oil and gas in the sea despite global warming. Learn from the mistakes of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan - not by not invading other countries but by ensuring we have sufficient weapons of mass destruction to avoid retaliation. What a wonderful future you set out for us.

So someone who raises doubts about a military parade is an acrimonious guest and is ethnically biased? I wonder would that count as 'playing the man not the ball ' - to coin a phrase. By the way, a Chinese patriot of my acquaintance recently pointed out that the Americans are not afraid of Chinese weaponry but they are afraid of China's GDP. A return to high growth combined with fairer distribution of wealth is China's best defence.

Nice friendly neighbourhood eatery and bar. Also has some hard-to-find foreign groceries on sale. Recently Diego, the owner of Cantina, started placing some of his imported Italian stuff there for sale too. Ben, the owner, has recently introduced a very welcome drinks happy hour.

Absolutely excellent restaurant. Great lamb and chicken kebabs, koftas etc. Great nan bread and vegetarian curries. A huge menu so there'll be something for everyone. Easily the best curry house in town. When I first went some time back it was dry but I can confirm that they now sell beer and wine. They also seem to have no problem with you bringing your own drinks as we did last night. It's right next door to Diego's Cantina so very easy to find. Two of Kunming's best restaurants side by side.

Had a great dinner here the other night. Superb food and service and a friendly crowd. First time at Vincent's new place. Will definitely be back.
