Q: Blue trucks with hot water tanks, what are they for?

There are blue trucks here in my city that have black hot water tanks on them, what is it for? I have tried to ask some people, but they don't really know. The trucks are probably 4 ton, so they must have about 800 to 1000 gallons on board!

There are bath houses in many cities, if your city has a power station there is usually heated water that is then sold and delivered by these trucks to the bath/shower houses for people to use...in the past many Chinese went to bath houses to take a shower, there are still some normal bath houses in every city but most have become seedy places where girls will help you take a shower...

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
