China For People Who Don’t Want To Be In China …

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 …

Doddsy is the ISIS of blogging. So what does that make Rob?

I hadn’t noticed the credit, but I was going to apologise anyway. I sent it to him months ago. I’ve not been myself.

Comment by andy@cynic

I don’t own anything in China thank-you-very-much. Not because I don’t want to, but because I know I would end up very much on the losing end, even if the housing bubble is growing at levels even Donald Trump can’t lie enough about.

A tourism video that doesn’t inspire me to be a tourist. Interesting strategy.

Comment by George

I think the audience they’re going for are people who have never left their house. Explains why the hose is such a condescending prick.

Comment by DH

A hose indeed.

Comment by John

Yep. They seem to have put out a ‘talent call’ for the most annoying, unappealing hosts in the World.

Comment by Rob

Pretty sure the Chinese only look at you “funny”. And who can blame them.

Comment by DH

True. Unfortunately …

Comment by Rob

China deserves a better tourism host than that gentleman.
