If you open a Monzo account (a British online bank) they allow you draw up to 200 pounds a month without charge from Chinese ATMs. You can give the cash to a Chinese friend who can then put the money into your WeChat wallet or your bank account. This isn't an advert for Monzo - there are alternatives. Shop around.

Use Swift to transfer money to your Chinese back account. Or find a Chinese friend with an American account who needs dollars and is prepared to swap. There are some newfangled apps like TransferWise but they don't work well in China because the receiving account must have been opened by a Chinese national.

Three years on and nothing has changed. Taxis still refusing to take passengers at rush hour and even at other times two out of three sail past empty with their for hire

lights on. I don't understand the economics of it especially since I recently met an ex-driver who sold his badge for 100,000 US dollars. How can you make an investment like that pay if you constantly refuse fares?

Sanford may be officially a non-profit organization but CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft gets around one million dollars a year in "compensation". In 2009, when Sanford merged with Meritcare, Krabbenhoft picked up 1.9 million dollars. A local Internet poll in Dakota found 70 percent think health care execs' pay is unfair.

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.
