thank you, caringhk and greendragon

caringhk

the place is Fei Shi (spelling); homage was to the KuanYin Bodhisatva, saw the saw palmetto tree at the stair height after that!  thank you for sharing the photos; your good heart has travelled much.  i used to enjoy Su Tung Po's poems tremendously, only equalled by Li Po.

greendragon

many thanks for your kind concern for the people of Anhui; i have been indirectly helping them in other ways, with regards agriculture; also, there are many people working hard in Xiangyang Shanghai;  they should allow them to continue earning their small living there.

sorry all for my poor spelling.

"Face" in China vs in Japan

Just a quick comment from an American who
mostly knows about China (and Japan) from MOVIES.

Having heard of the bad feelings between China and Japan
(and certainly there are valid historical reasons), excuse me
if I am raising an offending comparison ... But since I'm
just a "stupid American" I'm sure you'll exuse me if I do.


My (uninformed) feeling is that the Japanese are VERY, VERY
concerned with "face" ....

... but I don't really have any idea if there is a comparible
feeling in China or not.

Surely, people in every country do not wish to have
their identity insulted ...

But is there something very specific about Chinese "face"
that someone in China would nod their head and agree with?


Yes, I know. This may be a silly question. But I am a silly American,
so, again, forgive any offense.

yes, i am a silly Chinese man.

The japanese concerned with 'face' is concerned with their OWN 'face' only.

The Chinese concerned with 'face' is concerned with what is RIGHT for the situation.

don't forgive any offense here.

it is all intended.
