What do you call a FT?

What do you call a FT who thinks that because they teach a profession they have the qualities that are perceived by society of that profession?


For example, they teach Lawyers so they think that they are the equivalent of a Lawyer. 


Or they tutor Astronauts so they believe that they are similar to Astronauts.…

Transit WithOut Visa (TWOV) through Shenzhen - Yes or No or Both?

Someone asked me if it was possible to TWOV through Shenzhen Airport (SZX). I looked it up on TIMATIC which is the official IATA website that airline check-in personnel use to decide if someone has the right bits of paper to be allowed on their flight. There are many sorts of TWOV - you can stay in Beijing or Shanghai for six days without a visa, Guangzhou and bunch of other cities for three days. There is also…

Trying the New Train between Futian and West Kowloon

I took the train from Futian Station to West Kowloon and back yesterday, just to see what it was like and to stock up on Marks & Spencer’s pork pies for the holiday. It costs 68rmb each way and takes about 15 minutes in the train. The stations are big so there’s quite a lot of walking involved, getting to the station and within it. Both sets of Immigration are in West Kowloon station and I was through mostly quickly, but not any faster than at Luohu/Lo Wu - probably slower because of the…

Why are people still here?

Why do people still check this website? 

For me, I am working on a novella in which one of the characters uses online anonymity to cause damage to other people's lives. The subject interests me.

Also, I somewhat miss China.

Temporary Residence Registration in Shenzhen

If you are a foreigner and staying in someone's apartment in China, you are supposed to register with the police/PSB within 24 hours of your arrival. If you are a resident who has a friend staying you need to tell them this. My son arrived a month ago and I wanted to register him.

It's a pain going to the police station and going through this procedure so many avoid it and do not register. However, now the…

English Language DiDi

 In Shenzhen it's very unusual to have problems finding a taxi, but on our recent trip things were different. In Beijing you can stand waiting and watching those empty taxis zoom past because they're already answering a call. It was the same in Zhengzhou, Guiyang and a bunch of other cities.

So, if you're going to travel get DiDi on your phone, and if, like me, you can't read Chinese then get the English language version. Just search and find it. If you don't have a card linked…

Cultural Significance

We're returning to Shenzhen today from our last stop at Zunyi, Guizhou. That's the site of the party meeting in 1935 where Zhou Enlai and Mao Zedong took over the running of the PLA. It marks a major decline in Russian influence and is extremely important. It looks like this:

That's the set of five great mountains

So today I've been up Song Shan in Henan, being my fifth great mountain. I started on this in 2013 with Hua Shan in Shaanxi, which is still my favourite of the five. Later that year dropped by Heng Shan in Hunan on the way to Zhangjiajie. A gap then to 2016 with the Heng Shan in Shanxi. Then…
