I don’t know why he sent it to me, but the occasionally nice John Dodds sent me this video.
I must admit, I kinda hate it.
I get China can be daunting.
I get it is a frantic, confronting and complex place with many ‘ways’ that are totally opposite to what Westerners are used to … but I also think that is why the best way to experience the place is to just go with it and see where it takes you.
The people are incredibly kind and helpful.
Sure some will look at you in a weird way.
Sure many won’t be able to understand a single word you say.
But if you’re open to them, they will be incredibly open – and kind – to you.
Oh, and at 4 minutes 19 seconds, if you look to the right – at the white block of apartments – you are near my place. Except it’s behind those buildings and you enter it from a totally different location so there is literally no point for me to mention this. But since when has that ever stopped me.
OK, I’ll go now …
