Forums > Living in Kunming > New Schengen visa center to open in Kunming

Actually the regulations on applying for Schengen visa state, that you are supposed to apply it for the country which is the main destination for your visit - not the country of entering.

This effectively rules out the assumption that you need to enter via the issuing country.

If you plan to visit multiple countries with equally long stays, and therefore cannot determine which is the main destination, you can just pick one that is most convenient for you to apply for and claim it as your main destination even if you arrive via a different country.

Aww - I've only contributed with father's perspective to child birth and adult male circumcision in local hospitals... neither probably top priorities for arrivals new or old :(

Well there is this thread. And to stay on that topic, below are countries currently having their visa application needs for Yunnan served in the center in the same floor.

With their own offices:
UK, Ireland, Canada.

Jointly in shared office space:
Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden.

Curve ball with South Africa there.

Not sure if this applies to Italy visas, but for many other European countries:

I'm not a big fan of croissants anyway, and donuts I have not found in either of the establishments you mentioned.

@Dolphin: "savouring the croissant helps to cultivate appreciation. ie appreciating simple things rather than always feeling discontent that you don't have enough"

Perhaps, but it equally helps to cultivate ignorance of all the labor that has been put into creating that experience for you. At least I would allow you to feel discontent on behalf all the people who don't have enough, whether they had part in creating the croissant or not.

I't shouldn't anymore be about what you have or don't have, but what the other 7.7 billion (minus 1) people have or don't have. That's where the musings of Buddha (as quoted above) go wrong in this day and age.

There perhaps was a time, when embracing reality same way you would savour the croissant, could have been beneficial to achieving an enlightened state of mind.

But today, many would call such view on life quite the opposite of enlightened - it could be called ignorance or covering your eyes from all that is wrong. Perhaps that's suitable in Chinese context.

There, I connected the croissant to politics.

@sezuwupom : "JanJal is living the good life [...] Igor's delivers to your door."

You forgot to mention that I recycle and care for environment, which is why I would prefer to pick up my bakeries on my way rather than have someone on scooter deliver it wrapped in plastics. Even if it would leave the plastic maker and the scooter driver jobless. They could find new jobs in Just Hot, which I keep in business.

But I wish best of luck to Igor's. If location is everything, they have some catching up to do to reach out to potential customers like they are doing in this paid review..

Went here one morning after grocery shopping in nearby Walmart.

No surprise, shelves were less than half-empty like they are in all upper scale bakeries I've visited in Kunming, specifically in the mornings before lunch.

They all seem to get stocked up few hours after lunch time, which for me is too late because I like to consume my sweets at home(=office) couple of hours after lunch, without making a separate trip for it.

Thus my staple bakeries remain from big and soulless chains like Just Hot, that have their donuts ready before 11am.
