I love the Olympics,, watched as much as I could. Great games, great athletes, fantastic opening and closing ceremonies. I am really sad now it's over,, where to get my daily sports fix?! I even watched (yikes!!) synchronized swimming. Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and Elena Isinbajeva gave us unforgettable moments. Apart from a few dark clouds hanging over the games (underage gymnasts, doping, ref-kicking cubans and more) I think I will take over now Samaranch is gone and say it was the best games ever. Kudos to Beijing and China.
I could have done without that awfull "You & Me" song though,, it would fit better into a mediocre Disney movie.
I have been looking around on the site and found several golf clubs in the area around Kunming but everytime I get to their websites it says nothing about prices or greenfee ( I can only read the English pages). Can anyone give me some info about the clubs in the area? Can you get a membership for a reasonable price? Can you recommend some courses? I appreciate any info :)
My name is Nick and I am planning to go to China after the summer to teach ESL. I have been looking over the different provinces and cities and I have narrowed it down to either Liaoning or Yunnan since I don't function too well in very hot areas :). Kunming sounds like a really great place to stay for a year or two but I have a small problem. Does anyone know any good links to jobsites for Kunming/Yunnan? I have found only 2 so far and they do not seem to be updated very often and only very few jobs are listed there.
I have a few offers to work in Beijing but I have been there for a couple of months before and tbh Beijing is a nice place to visit as a tourist but I wouldn't want to live there for real. If anyone could give me some good advice about Kunming it would be greatly appreciated.
A little about myself: I am 32 years old and a Danish national. I am a qualified teacher with English as specialty. I have taught 4 years in Denmark and lived 3 years in London. I recently split up with my girlfriend for 5 years and now I just feel like I need a change of scenary. Since I have been to China for all in all about 6 months before and really liked it I figure it could be interesting to go live there for a while.
King regards Nick

The comment from Chris had deserved a wider audience. Beluga?
Went there yesterday and it totally made my week. Nice decor and friendly staff and a real salad bar. Sadly we both wanted mexican food so I can't really say much about their other courses. The food was great but just a tad spicier would have improved the dish. The best thing was that we almost had the place to ourselves and we could have a quiet conversation without shouting, spitting Chinese people in the background. I realised how much I had missed that since coming here.
We went to Chicago Coffee a couple of days ago and it was a nice experience. The place is cozy with soft comfy chairs (I realized how much I have missed one since coming here) and they have a nice little collection of English language books in the corner consisting mainly of classics and travel litterature. I was looking forward to trying their advertized tortilla bar but it wasn't up and running that evening.
Instead we went for 2 12 inch pizzas -roast chicken and pepperoni- but we quickly realized that 1 would have been enough. Those things are heavy. I am mainly into Italian style pizza but Chicago's double layered pizzas are well worth a try. Their coffee seems to be a bit on the expensive side but people say good things about it and they have got a nice selection. I wouldn't mind dropping by again some day,, hopefully when they've got the tortilla thing going. English speaking staff btw.
