It's true that China and every other country do not have embassies in Houston. What's being forced to close is the consulate, and that's a remote branch of the embassy which is in Washington.
In some countries there is no linguistic difference between embassy and consulate.
Just read this in other news from Thailand:
"Anyone planning to travel to China needs to contact their nearest Chinese embassy, with a written confirmation that they have tested negative for Covid-19, and request a declaration of health status."
That sounds a bit complex too.
If it was just announced (yesterday now), what about all those people already on the way prior to the announcement.
Is there an official start date for this new rule or will all those people be turned away on arrival?
For my own education, how long does it take to get a nucleic acid test done if it must be "complete" within 5 days?
No results found.
Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.
While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.
Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.
If I lived closer I would be a regular here.
After 14 months in Kunming I've finally found a restaurant that knows how to cook a steak! The last time I had a decent steak was a year ago in Chang Sha.
We found My Favor because of the ad here on Go Kunming. I was not disappointed. The restaurant if very much "upscale", sharing the 6th floor of the Brilliant Plaza with other restaurants that it's Chinese, Japanese and Korean equals, so we've found a great place to go for special occasions.
Being non-smokers we really appreciated the separate no smoking room. The decor is quite elegant and the entire place is spotlessly clean (even polished where it should be).
We were given separate menus for food, beverages and deserts. There was enough selection to satisfy anybody but not so overwhelming that you couldn't decide what to have. The price range was also varied, ranging from modest to a lot.
I chose my always favorite beef tenderloin. Although the menu didn't state it, the dish was served with a choice of the five soups that were offered. My wife stuck with the pasta (she's a noodle nut).
The only downside came in the timing. Our soups arrived together, but my wife had finished her main course before mine arrived.
The serving staff did not hover over us but were quickly available when we wanted something, however, we were the only customers so I can't comment on what service might be like at busy times.
Overall I was very satisfied and might make this a place for a once a month treat.
