Travelling and at various locales that require registration, I am sometimes recorded on paper. They take my passport info and occasionally ask to see my Kunming residence permit. That's because I don't use WeChat, so can't scan the code at the entrance.
Every two weeks I get a new green code at yunnan.inspurhealth.com:7089/index.html.
Generally speaking, this once-every-two-week green code gets me passed through, including at Kunming subway. If not, I get registered on paper.
On a recent trip to Lijiang, I readily gained access to Jade Water Village (passport and green code) which is just north of Baisha. A short distance down the road is the Dongba Musuem. Strangely, they wouldn't let me enter, but then they have a blanket denial of all foreigners at this time.
I had special eclipse viewing glasses from the 2017 total eclipse of the sun. It was fun going around the neighborhood, inviting people to view today's partial eclipse phenomenon safely. Quite a few oohs and ahs. A few people had no interest at all. I always made sure to tell folks, "Don't look at the sun directly, use these special glasses."
That 2017 total eclipse was really special. I stood on a high hill and actually saw the dark shadow of the moon racing toward us, and then racing away. Once in a lifetime!
