Q: Where can I buy a good map of Changsha?

I already have "The Tour and Transportation Map of Changsha" but it's not very good.  It doesn't have all of the streets on it and it's not very detailed, not very helpful for finding my way around.  A couple of years ago, when I was last in Changsha I saw a really good map which was detailed (showing all the streets) and even had the bus route numbers shown on it to help you plan your route.  The trouble is, I've been here a month now and I can't find anywhere that sells a good map like that.  I don't even know where to look.  Would I find that kind of thing in a bookshop, in a bus or train station...?

 

I have no trouble reading characters so there's no need for any map you might suggest to have pinyin or English on it.

 

I'm living in halls of residence and receiving post here has proven to be something of a challenge so it would be helpful if someone could suggest somewhere I could go and buy a map rather than a website that'd be great.

 

Any help finding a decent map would be appreciated.

On the corner of Furong Rd. and Jia Fang Rd, there is a XinHua bookstore. You can park under the overpass, which is Jia Fang Rd. It will cost you 5RMB to park. Go to the third floor, and at the top of the stairs, turn left. Proceed past the art books section (on the left), and right behind the wall, there is a map section, with city, province, and national maps, both in Chinese and English.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
