@red

Not disagreeing with you at all. But some folks here wish to fulfill duties of Asian Representation for their peeps.

Props to Michelle Yeoh for staying classy as always. She's the epitome of 气质.

Awkwafina is adorable in her humble, comical ways. High hopes for her.

Another breakout comedian Jimmy O. Yang has much more depth than outrageously portrayed.

Some of us are more critical because we care.

Hover boards? Like the one in Back to the Future Marty McFly was being chased on?

I saw electric boards (ones that are grounded) at Carrefour near Nanping Pedestrian Street. They're on display by the smartphone section. Xiaomi electronics section is there as well.

Tzu Chi Foundation (慈济, CiJi) often travel (via hired chartered buses) to rural outskirts 50-150km (or farther) from Kunming to provide supplies & assistance to those in need.

This Kunming-based charity organization may welcome foreign English teachers for their frequent missions. Not sure. You'll have to touch base with the Tzu Chi volunteer leaders (info end of post).

Many of the members are Buddhists, but you don't have to be one to join. Compassion & time, all that are required. Tzu Chi has world-wide reach. Their members consist of retired or active professionals with day jobs who find free time to help the impoverished, the sick, the foster children, or the elders.

For reference, here's an old English article published by their foundation, titled "Tzu Chi Delivers Winter Aid to Thousands Across China - Yunnan:"

Exciting times in Kunming. Line 3 is about to start very soon, probably next month. Don't mind them taking time for safety precautions.

Line 5 "交三桥" station near Cuihu Lake has already begun construction with visible crane by 中铁十八局. There is another "交三桥" station with the exact name on Line 2 (adjacent to the East on the KRT map), which is kind of confusing.

Thank you for this post. Early mornings just before break of dawn will always reap quiet solitude in any city. For said morning birds, get the Kunming Zoo (Yuantong Hill) annual pass for just a little over 100RMB, and enjoy peaceful morning walks or jogging (w/ changing elevations) before 7am.
