I have no stock replies. Just the truth.
You, on the other hand, have many comments you cut and pa ...

No Robert, it is you that refuses to say why he will not move to his beloved China now, the only excuse you have ever given is that you are waiting for your capitalist pension.

If China is ideal for you then get over here now and get a job here, if like me you pay into the scheme for long enough you will get a Chinese pension from the city where you worked.

Sad thing is you are not man enough to make the leap.

futsanglung: Look at Robert's first post in this thread. It is another anti-America troll. He pretended to answer the question, but really used it as a diversion to take a dig at the US. Don't take the bait, man!





The thing that surprised me most was the general fitness of Chinese, compared to Americans. It is not just a matter of nearly everyone being the correct weight, but also their flexibility.

As to Red Robbo, I know exactly what he is upto and I enjoy baiting him, however he is currently not talking to me.

As to the fitness of the Chinese, are you sure????

When I attend the gym here in Shanghai I am amazed at how unfit the average Chinese young man is, they may look OK in size and weight but they mostly lack strength and stamina, the same applies to EVERY Chinese man I have ever employed, I am 50 and not terribly fit nowadays ( I ran Marathons in the past) but can lift twice what most of the Chinese half my age can and keep going for twice as long.

Being a British guy , as said above is the freedom. And the amount of citizens who have said welcome to china, China is awesome. I dont have much to say about religion or politics. Leave that to others. Getting used to crossing the roads maybe at number two. China is a special place for sure.

I was surprised by the kindness and generosity of the Chinese people. This is my second trip in a year, total stay so far is five months. I left but had to come back because China is, well, China. I mostly visit smaller city's in which few foreign travelers ever go so I stand out in a crowd.  I am now in Wuhu looking for a teaching job and plan to visit or work here for a long time.  BTW: I have visited and bus surfed in 18 countries and find China the most friendly and most interesting.
