I am writing from Shenzhen China. China is such a fascinating place. Much of it looks the same (I am writing this sitting in a Starbucks after I went to a McDonalds for breakfast - yes, I am being an adventurous Canadian/American).
The trip has been very eye opening. Much of the thinking here is the exact opposite of my mind-frame on most topics.
It is an interesting world here. For every similarity there is a complete opposite. Then again, the country seems to be one of utter juxtapositions. For every freedom there is a shackle. For every modernization there is a antiquity in thought. It is a constant enigma wrapped in an oxymoron. I am learning a lot as a result.
The trip can also be described in these terms. For every wonderment, there is a disappointment. As Spock would say...'fascinating'
Let me just say that I want to apologize for not going visiting this week. Between the travel schedule, the jet lag and the ban on a lot of your blogs (for instance I can not access any blogspot blogs) - it has been very difficult to visit you all.
Though I encourage you all to read my Mondays Listicle piece. I think it is my humor at its strangest.
I will also be posting more pictures soon. I have some great ones.
Hope all is well wherever you all are.
and now my fill-ins:
1. Sometimes I wonder if I should move to Tahiti but I know I won’t…
2. Chocolate is my favorite flavor of everything
3. The thing I will remember most vividly about China is the incredible number of people here in Shenzhen
4. When I am honest about it, I really appreciate Western Culture.
