Does anyone know if camping overnight on the Saturday allowed? Is there an extra fee for that?
I hear Zebra has been cancelled (or at least postponed). As usual! Is this true?
The food's great but I wish they'd get an extra deep fat fryer - or just a bigger one - because if you order three things or more it takes ages to cook everything one by one in that tiny little fryer they have now (by which time the first thing you ordered has gone cold!).
Heading home so need to get rid of my two petrol engine scooters.
125 CC SCOOTER
Quite new (about 10,000 km), great condition. It's very reliable and goes pretty damn fast. It also has a licence plate so it's kinda legal. Well, more legal than not having one at all if you know what I mean. 2000 RMB ono.
50 CC SCOOTER
Pretty old but still a good runner. A bit beaten up - but that means no one will want to nick it which is good, right? Brand new battery and recent oil change. 500 RMB.
Get in touch and I can send pics if you like. Am leaving Sunday 11 Jan so please be quick.
There's a little place on Shunjiang Lu just a little bit to the east of The Waterfront main entrance on the river. It's small and grubby but the guy is very friendly and understanding (especially when trying to make sense of my fractured Mandarin).
Three questions about changing RMB for other currencies... any thoughts appreciated.
(1) I hear you can now exchange RMB for up to US$500 a day without lots of complicated paperwork/tax records etc. Is that right? Just take your passport to the bank and it's as easy as that?
(2) Does anyone know if it's possible to change RMB for local currency in Indonesia? Preferably in a proper bank rather than a dodgy money changer.
(3) And is it possible to use a Chinese BoC UnionPay debit card in Indonesia?
Thanks for your ideas.
It's great to have another sandwich option and the BLT I had wasn't bad but I wouldn't go overboard about it. Some different bread options would be great rather than the pretty tasteless soft stuff that's being used now. BTW it took ages to find the cafe... Ryan, you might want to put out some more specific directions to the place.
