“Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around.”

In China

Well. I’ve now been in the ‘Peoples Republic of China’ for one week! I’m here working for a while, maybe up-to one year!

I’m in the Sichuan region and I must say that so far, I’m impressed! Chengdu looks developed. The streets are clean, the parks and planted areas are well tended, the people seem prosperous and most are genuinely friendly. I was expecting a bit of a run down dump, the likes of which I saw in Brazil when I lived there at the beginning of the year! China is definitely a step up from Brazil!

I have begun to pick up a few words of Chinese, beer being the first one I learned, and have had some very nice food!

Due to the ‘great firewall’ I’ve not been able to use my laptop yet to post, so am confined to my iPhone, which has a VPN. If any of you have suggestions as to what I can download whilst here, please leave the suggestion in the comments!

    Probably not! Can’t see how it can! They can empty a few slums, keep the worst crims out of Zona Sul, but that’s about it!
