@JanJal: Ha ha. Speaking of jury-rigged water heaters, I once stayed in a hotel in Brasilia where the shower's electrical heating element was a wire clipped directly to the underside (nozzle) of the shower head itself. The Shower of Damocles... (And it was actually a decent hotel otherwise, in the Setor Hoteleiro.)
@miealex: Pending a durable solution, there's always the fallback of an Indian-style bucket bath using water from the functioning hot water tap.
I'm reluctant to sidetrack the thread, but I will say: The number of people now unemployed in the US alone is larger than the entire population of Canada. I doubt the economy can snap back fast enough by next year to meaningfully change the labor market dynamics I mentioned, even if we get lucky soon with a vaccine or treatment.
If the postings in the classifieds over time are any guide, my sense is that teaching jobs in Lijiang are few and far between. You could get lucky and happen onto an opening when someone is leaving, but I wouldn't count on it.
Normally I would say to look into teaching online, but the big companies that recruit internationally are deluged with applicants who have been laid off due to the pandemic, to such a degree that some have stopped taking applications entirely. You might explore teaching online with less-huge Chinese companies -- some prefer to hire foreigners who are already in China rather than recruit abroad for various reasons including cultural fit and time zone.

Grace is staffed by American doctors and, in my experience, provides the same level of expertise and standard of care that you would expect to find in a good clinic in the U.S. I highly recommend them.
