come on guys! don't be so sensitive! it is quite unique to china! and quite amazing! It simply amazes me the skill in balancing so many objects on a single bike! yes, i realise that these people are poor, I'm not making a joke about that. they mustn't be doing too bad with a fridge the size of that. if they were poor and couldn't afford food then they wouldn't need such a big fridge would they?

and for the record, I'm not fat, I'm actually skinny, so you can joke away about my fat gut that doesn't exist all you want! I wish I could put on weight! I've been skinny all my life!

And yes, China will soon learn that being fat is simply to do with the wealth of the general population of the country. Just wait and see, fat CHinese are starting to appear everywhere. At least western people get out and do exercise. I hardly ever see asians exercising, all just sit in tiny little houses all day. China will explode in fatness in the future I'm predicting.

(that ought to stir up some comments) :)

with them. Its is very dangerous to see them in traffic and accidents are happening all over in Guangzhou because of overloaded bikes.


We have a seemingly nice traffic policeman in Chengdu. He is followed round by a camera crew from one of the local TV stations. Whenever he spots someone on the road doing something potentially dangerous, regardless of whether it is a car driver, motor cyclist, cyclist or pedestrian, he proceeds to give them a lecture on road safety for the benefit of Chengdu viewers.

I don't know if it's the sheer embarasment of loosing face on TV or whether their bladders are full to bursting by the time he has finished with them but the body language is fascinating. On a good day he will invite a passer by or a member of the offenders family to tell everybody how stupid the offender is. Wonderful community policing.

I wish he'd stop Mrs FD some day because she doesn't listen to me.

I've got a few traffic tickets in my time. If the cop comes up to the car window and starts lecturing me fairly quickly, and if I look contrite enough, then my experience tells me there will be a small ticket, or maybe no ticket at all.

But if the cop just asks for licence and registration and doesn't say much at all, then I figure I'm going to get a heavy fine.

If Mrs. FD does get stopped by your traffic policeman, would you be willing to offer commentary on her wild and lawless behaviour in return for a fine reduction?  Interesting dilemma.

I've seen the same thing in Nepal.

I guess it depends on how long I wish to live. I have a theory she would pass herself off as my interpreter and blame it all on the lao wai screaming.
