Medical Insurance.

I am returning to China after spending over 20 years in the US. Among many things facing people with foreign passport is getting medical insurance through employment. My US passport is 9 digits, but the Chinese ID system has many more digits, as a result, my info could not be entered into the computer system here. There are a lot of administrative people here in Kunming at all levels, but apparently no body knows how to fix the problem.

squat-down toilets.

I grow up in the 70's in China and used to this, but then in the 80's in Shanghai the normal toilet start to appear in public restrooms, so are in all public restrooms in the US since before 1776. This actually take some trust and getting use to since you will be sitting on something many other people sat on before you. I always have the thought that i might contact something bad through out these years. Now I am back in China, the squat-down toilets do look gross to me, but the main problem is that many public restrooms are filthy, like some gas station bathrooms in the US. It is a shame.

it's probably a relief for the soldiers to be shooting a gun! Unsure they are still allowed real bullets and/or guns however. I had it on not so good authority that they used to shout bang or whatever the Chinese equivalent is
