I don't disagree. It's a data point, or anecdotal if you prefer, which is why I said "It's only one incident...".

And yes, as I have written on these forums before, I have found Chinese people in my experience to generally be friendly and helpful towards foreigners.

Check Gerry Shih's tweets from the past day.

It's only one incident and not nearby, so draw your own conclusions.

This is just FYI. Further discussion here is probably not advisable.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Average rent for small apartment?

Inflation has been running at a rough average of 2% nationally since 2015, so you can expect prices generally to be around 10% higher.

My unscientific impression is that rental rates have gone up by more than that, somewhere in the 10% to 20% range. For the equivalent of your 1500 RMB rental from 2015, this translates to a range of 1650 to 1800 RMB today. Incidentally, that overlaps with satii's estimate above ("1700 imo is still totally doable. 1500 with some luck").

An oxymoron. MAD is bi-directional, hence the "mutual". Both sides have reduced leverage over each other under MAD, because threats to use conventional force have low credibility in light of the extreme risks involved.

Turn that smile upside down, sezuwupom. Expressing positive sentiments about fast, comfortable, affordable and environmentally-sustainable new rail connections is not allowed by the comments police. Anyone who is not sufficiently glum will be ridiculed.
