Much better travel feature than I expected and nicely presented. I was tempted to make a final return visit but I'll stick with the good memories, and perhaps this, as a reminder.

There is such an extension afforded on a discretionary basis, applied for by your employer, for between 15-30 days. The purpose is ‘humanitarian’ and allows the employee to sort affairs after completing a contract. As usual, best advice is to contact PSB directly.

@Stevula If you haven't already done so, check precisely what a sleeper bus is here. If you're the right size and not claustrophobic then you'll be ok. Oh, and the occasional smoker lighting up. I shudder every time I see one but others find them bearable.

@michael2015 Certainly not envisaging video, which I personally see as a distraction. What you describe may be an option but nothing at all like I imagine, which is more an Internet based radio you can listen to at home or on the go. A relatively tiny city like Chiangmai has at least one fully compliant station that I know of and Kunming region is ripe for a RADIO like this. Also, regulation is not necessarily a barrier.

If you opened this post in excited anticipation of a Radio gokunming or similar, sadly, to the best of my knowledge, no such radio station exists. But why not? Surely such a station is overdue. One providing a magazine type mix of news, public service announcements, music, book clubs, sponsored language programmes for Chinese, English and possibly other languages. Cooking programmes, travel, health advice and lots more. Certainly not a pure expat service: I imagine a virtual sound-based meeting place in the same way that restaurants like Salvadors provide food and drink in a mixed culture setting.
Could such a station be financially viable either online or broadcast? Are there any policy or legal barriers to such a station? Do any cities or regions in China have such a facility already?

Seriously dolphin, by the time most of my peers had left high-school (secondary school to be accurate) they all had the common sense to recognise when someone was trying to pull the wool over their eyes. There have been tall stories around since time immemorial. I don't see a genuine issue here, other than some people wanting to shout 'fire' every five minutes and cause worldwide mass hysteria.

I can smell that from just looking at the image. It's enough to put me off eating meat in what's left of my time in China. Once again, it raises doubts about food safety. Of course, there are always prime Australian steaks waiting in the freezer at Metro.

Ever since seeing patients having teeth extracted on the street when working in Guizhou many years ago I've studiously avoided dental treatment here. So when pushed into a corner because a Thai dentist confessed to being unqualified to do a particular procedure I feared the worst. It was at least reassuring when the Huiying dentist confessed it would be tricky. Within 40 minutes, during which I nearly dozed off, the job was complete and the care surpassed anything I've had in my life, and all without any fuss.

My one and only impression is that Richland is a cash deposit facility dressed up as medical establishment with actors dressed up as nurses. The 'doctors' turning up late, if at all, for rehearsal.
