China is already a favorite tourist destination for many foreigners. The Olympics will just add some athletes, spectators and sports commentators to the businessmen and retirees who visit from lands afar for a marvellous few weeks each time. A series of big, highly profiled events no doubt but after them it'll be back to normal, albeit with even more energetic growth, i expect.|
I find someone spitting more innocent than someone else on charges of raping a manila accountant in the backseat of a van and claiming consular protection over the head of the local laws because of some bilateral clause (US-Philippines, manila, marine). They never got over their loss of Saigon although quick to ignore what they had done in MyLai, Baghdad, Guantanamo....
In this context i find Chinese manners amenable, acceptable and agreeable by comparison.
Only one teeny thing before the games... in the airport terminal washrooms (perhaps tolled-highway stops, too) and above each urinal, it shouldn't be 'waterfree' but, maybe if you can agree, something like...'auto-flush' (or, more compactly, 'autoflush'); also the attendants shouldn't have to stand in the washrooms the whole day; the air is not entirely hygienic even if the facilities are modern and well-maintained.
I love China and the Chinese people without conditions.
