Flag of China  , Zhejiang,
Saturday, November 22, 2008

We have spent two days walking around a lake and we still didn't get the whole way round. A very beautiful lake full of hudden coves and little bridges and pagodas and little temples. There are 36 west lakes in china but this is the biggest and most spectacular, according to our travel book. It has been a lovely, relaxing couple of days despite the freezing cold climate and rain. We are leaving in a few hours to sleep at the airport before our flight in the morning followed by a ferry to Macau. Its 24 degrees Celsius in Macau at the moment and that will be lovely. While on the phone to mum dad and midget earlier me and toad boy saw... .... Jesus. Walking on water, just look at the pictures. God was sending us a sign. So as an epilogue to our time in China here is 10 things we've learnt...
1.  Chinese people are inconsiderate to personal space and queue jump.  All the time.
2.  Chinese people spit on the street after hocking up a massive phlegm ball.
3.  Always carry tissues and wet wipes.
4.  Taxi drivers are clinically insane, everywhere.  Red light?  Who cares...
5.  Chinese people love using the bell on their bike and horn on their car.
6.  Beer is cheaper than water.
7.  Wherever you go (if you're white) you WILL get stared at and have pictures taken of you with or without your knowledge/permission.
8.  Ever wondered what happens to chicken's feet?  They all get shipped here - vacuum packed delicacy. You also sometimes have no idea what you're eating; sometimes it could turn out to be a baby duck (Sam in Nanjing!)
9.  All toilets stink.  And there is always urine on the floor.
10.  The Chinese people are the most honest, friendliest, welcoming  people to Laowei's.
