same to you. i've had a great time here. definitely has changed and dispelled a lot of what i've ever known about china. i know there's probably still some shit under the fur that i'll never be privet to, but the reason i go on these trips is to discover a new culture and what it's about...and i have to say, the majority of what i've ever known about the chinese people is really wrong. still have until friday in shanghai for the spring festival, but i've had nothing but positive experiences so far.

oh...i checked in on facebook at the top of the great wall. if anyone can top that, prove it

i posted a thread last week about things to do during chinese new year and there was a lot of naysayers. well, i've found it to be quite pleasent. yes, the cities are quiet, but it's easy to get around. all the chinese friends i've made have been nothing but hospitable. i haven't found it noisy, hard to get around, or anything. everyone is high-spirited and jovial. i can't complain!

Great place to visit though...

We still eat dogs. They taste good, as inhumane as that may sound....

Hit a bar yet? shanghai girls are said to be rubbing up to western man like bees on flower - so many examples on the streets

actually one place to really challenge yourself is - head to the train station for a visit.

IT's what we call the "春运" season (spring.. transport..?) where everyone's heading home. That's where you can see the MASS. It's quite a sight - it does look unorganized and crazy, but it's improving over the years. Happens every year before & after lunar new year.

well i don't know about the shanghainese, because my only conquest was filipino/aussie. she's a lao wai also, so i guess it doesn't count.

no dog for me yet...although this cantonese spot we ate at for lunch was rather peculilar. it was halfway between beijing and the great wall, so really industrial and shady. coulda been some woof woof, but it was mostly white meat. haha.

i've been to a few bars. we were all over shanghai on saturday. it was a great time. i don't remember where i was, but i didn't wake up upset . taxi card rules all. i'd love to know true mandarin because this is a country i'd love to backpack through, north to south in true form. i'm enamored with asian culture as white bread, but i'm re-energized in my passion to move to tokyo and study japanese for a couple years. that's been a passion of mine for many years. i don't know that i could handle china daily, but japan is the safe middle ground, although mandarian is the language of business nowadays.

Cool...its a total must to know locals as everything's in Chinese..my woman was born there and she's visiting relatives so im gonna catch up with her. China is a trip though, serious culture shock and it's actually pretty amazing with a mix of modern super cities and ancient scenary/buildings.
Like you I found it pretty easy to get around with all of the subways and buses everywhere (as long as your with locals of course-otherwise you'd be f'd). If your in Beijing again check out 3.3 mall.

lol.... well not quite lol... but i feel your pain man. i can definitely see that happening. always delay payment and barter down the price. part of the game sadly.

btw, how bad is it shipping that stuff over there? corrugated takes up hella space. well i guess you gotta pack it pretty tight.

it's super easy...and i hate to down my own country, but we're in the dust compared to most of the asian countries. take japan and china for example...multiple megalopolises and the people move efficiently. not only that, but the infrastructure is almost new. it's incredible. i'm not preaching communism or socialism by far, but eminent domain is a must if we want to even scratch the surface of catching up.

if you disregard the fact that these dogs were raised up in hell just for the meat, for the few times I had them, they tasted really good. I'd say better tasting than chicken, veal, pork or fish.

If you think about it - we ate every type of animal back in the days. It's only because we are now accustomed to them as companions, we stopped eating them. But tradition's tradition. I had them when I was a kid back then

It's kinda like how people can eat pork, but cannot set knife to a pig. In the same sense, I would love to own a dog as a companion... but can't really relate to the meat..
