First the good:|
People are generally very nice. Sure there are bad ones, but when you get to know people they are usually incredibly nice. My first spring festival in china I didn't have any really good friends y e t,only been here a few months, the shop owner under my apartment invited me to his house for the holiday. At that time I couldn't under stand any thing, just enough to under stand that he was inviting me to his house and to get on hisscooter. Ha ha, it's was a great time. I've never been treated like family bystrangers faster than in china.
Family values. I love how important familyis out here. I have my pro blems with it (I'l l write about that below) butover all I love it.
Food. Not at all like American Chinesefood. Some of it is terrible, but good Chinese food is l so much better thangood American Chinese food.
Now the bad:
Manners. Spitting, shitting, pissing, puking, blowing snot rockets, all onthe street. Table manners also. This surprised me the m o s t. I came to China after living I n Japan for ayear. L Talk about a shock.
Parental control. It drives me crazy howmuch control parents have over their kids. I got married last year andbasically am a terrible son in law because we haven't made a baby for theparents yet.
Kids don't grow up. Because of the parentalcontrol kids stay kids for ever. My best friend who is 28 and married lives athome, goes home for lunch, and basically can't do any thing to take care of himself. Awe some guy, but seriously needs to man up. He got married a few monthsback, doesn't want a kid yet, but it doesn't matter so he and his wife arealready expecting. His mom called me sel fish for not knocking my wife upalready.
What's your make of it? You must have things to add.
