Does anyone know if companies in China are still hiring foreigners to "act" like they are working so people walking by think the company is diverse. I remember that was a fad a decade or so ago. I'm sure it is no longer the case but you never know.
Tom, were you one of those regulars at Salvadors back in the summer of '10? I'm sure we crossed paths.
I was in Mongolia (only stayed in Ulaanbaator) from October through November. The weather was great, only snowed once. I hooked up with several girls. I was like a rock star there. Girls were giving me looks, making eye contact, etc. There weren't very many foreigners there so I stood out with my charming looks and personality...lol The girls in Kunming really missed out with me.
I liked it a lot better than China and will be going back once this pandemic circus ends. They don't censor the internet. I opened a bank account there and deposited a small amount of money due to their high interest earning accounts. Opened it a branch in 20 minutes. That would have never happened in China. Most young people are studying English verses Chinese or Russian. It is relatively cheap but I can see it turning expensive due to the influx of the oil, gas and mining industries.
I'll never forget the time I was in Salvadors posting on GoKunming about how most of the expats who went their were very snooty. I was literally sitting at the same table as them posting and they didn't know it was me. They all started talking about it and were getting upset. It was hilarious.
