... much higher threshold for it. E.g. they shout a lot in many situations, they beep their car and moped horns a lot, many shops have large speakers out front blaring pop (and sometimes traditional Chinese) music and, most maddening for us, you find loud, brash, pre recorded sales pitches on repeat...aaaah!

... Recall my explanation of why pedestrians are low on the right-of-way totem pole, being honked at constantly (entry - "The Little Things")? I am sure he found this cute but not at all correct.

Passing endless factories and smokestacks we ...

Once our train had pulled up to the platform it was then time to jump (I mean this literally) on to the train. The gap was so big I thought I would fall onto the tracks. As we were late booking our tickets we didn’t manage to get seats together, so while Oliver was sat next to a beautiful Chinese lady who refused to take her earphones out for anyone, I was sat at ...

... train ticket. Not happening. A bus for us instead on the day we leave.
It was after six and we went to meet our host Guoxiang. He worked in KFC, so we dropped in. He was a later than expected in finishing, so we left for a wander. Down the side streets we went, sampling food and greeting smiling faces and children chasing after us. This is the China we were looking for. You can forgive all the tourist nonsense with this. We even got a "Laoir ok"( ...
