-though I like the 3 dots in Beijing

What's up with Chinese place names? When I was a kid looking at a map of China, it showed the capital as 'Peking(Peiping)'. Now it's Beijing, and there are other places like Guangzhou that used to have a name I recognized. I first noticed this in the late 80's and with people I knew who had gone there, but now it's ubiquitous. My question is not about why or if China changed the name, but why did the US usage change. Why just China? (we don't say Lisboa, Firenze, München, Moskva, etc.) [more inside]

Reconsidering Plans in Asia

A friend of mine recently posted this question about doing research in Tibet . His university has decided that it would like to err on the side of caution - thus, they are restricting him from going to Tibet. So, he needs a new plan and potentially a new topic of research - probably still focusing on Sino-Globalization as it relates to Tibetans. His university suggested Yunnan Province as a possibility, but do you Mefites have any suggestions? (Budget is $3000 for 3 weeks)
