Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

In many cities in China, you can see.

On the square, there are a lot of people dancing.

In China, some of the Mother, the eldest sister likes to dance.

Dancing In their view, in addition to entertainment,

Can also exercise the body extremities.

So, you do not have to be surprised.

"I'd far prefer the wilds and wilderness around Mt Emei, where one has room to breath; room to walk; and room to be one with oneself."

You this desire,

Some Chinese people's dreams.

Also my dream

I wish you everything was okay! ............(f)


在中国很多的城市,你可以看到。

在广场上,有很多人在跳舞。

在中国,一些大妈、大姐喜欢跳舞。

跳舞在她们看来,除了娱乐以外,

也可以锻炼四肢躯体。

所以,你不必惊讶。

“ I'd far prefer the wilds and wilderness around Mt Emei, where one has room to breath; room to walk; and room to be one with oneself.”

你的这个愿望,

是一些中国人的梦想。

也是我的梦想

祝你一切安好!…………

"Dancing In their view, in addition to entertainment, Can also exercise the body extremities"

Yes, I agree with you, Prana. In fact, I thought this was the main reason for the dancing for most people - not to dance for dancing's sake - but mainly as a form of regular EXERCISE?

Although like our friend @aussieghump, in one place near Emeishan I found that they danced quite early, around 6.30 in the morning. The music would wake me up in the hotel each morning. I really do enjoy the people dancing, but when they do it rather early, my view is that they should have quiet music, rather than loud music. Unless they think that no one should still be in bed after 6.30am! :S

You also said,

"I'd far prefer the wilds and wilderness around Mt Emei..... also my dream"

You sound like a very lovely person, Prana. I notice your English ability is progressing nicely as well. So you are not only nice, you're very intelligent as well! Most people (like me) only know one language. I genuinely do admire those that are smart enough and diligent enough to know two.

Well done, Prana! (handshake)

Haha ok Barry I think Einstein is so damned right, time is comparatively longer or shorter according to your mood , do you remember his analogy? Time goes much faster in swimming pool with beauties than studying, although the time is physically the same. So I guess if you go swimming with Tina, you might find time even more inexorably accelerates? Haha…

We visited Jiu Zhai Gou, I like there very much, I think it looks like the origin of the world so pure and beautiful it is pity that you didn’t share your pictures there…

Ok I like the booking.com, do you think it is the best one? Or do you have some other website to recommend? I used ctrip.com.

Haha I like your dancing picture: it is quite foreign…
So happy to know Tina and you are getting better and better now:)

"Time goes much faster in swimming pool with beauties than studying"

You're exactly correct, Sandy - the longer I was in China, the faster that time went. Einstein first noticed this and now you're aware of it also, as am I. Does that make us all as smart as Einstein was? :^)

You also said,

"We visited Jiu Zhai Gou........ it is pity that you didn’t share your pictures there"

No worries, Sandy - some pictures will be shown in the next two or three articles, once I actually arrive there. This article referred mainly to the Chengdu leg of my trip, rather than Jiuzhaigou itself. So please stay tuned!

"I like booking.com, do you think it is the best one"

Good question, Sandy. I'm not sure about this. I think maybe the best way to get cheap accommodation is to compare two or three booking services, such as booking.com with ctrip.com with expedia.com or wotif.com

"I like your dancing picture: it is quite foreign"

Thanks for this, Sandy. I agree that my dancing is very foreign indeed! :D

Did you read the rather long and tedious explanation of language learning I posted on your day 15?
Just found this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PHILIPS-English-Language-proven-full-course-to-learn-English-language-quickly-/161365076859?pt=AU_Education_Learning&hash=item25921bab7b

And this is in Brisbane, Australia. I think you may know this place.

When is the next instalment in the series coming?

All the best
Nekko

"I want to thank you for entertaining Tina and the rest of us with your blogging..... I will take over from here on"

You gave me a good laugh with this, George. Good on you. If Tina wants you back, then most certainly I will abide by her wishes.

Good luck to us both."

Oh my all as I can say is rowwwwhhhh the gloves are off...get him Barry, smack him Barry, yes hit him when he is down Barry!!!!!

Georgie Porgie pudding 'n pie kissed the girls and made them cry!(rofl)

Personally I would never get in a situation where the woman has 2 suitors...to much pain involved.

Good luck Mate I truly am on your side and hope all works out for you!

"Did you read the rather long and tedious explanation of language learning"

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, Nekko - I had totally missed your comment. I shall certainly read it carefully right now.

"this is in Brisbane, Australia. I think you may know this place"

Which place is this, Nekko? I think I may have missed something here.

You also asked,

"When is the next instalment in the series coming?"

Well, the next three instalments (days 17, 18 and 19) have been written and are waiting in the CLM blog queue. I'm sure John will publish them whenever he sees fit.

Cheers Nekko and thanks for your comments. (y)

"Personally I would never get in a situation where the woman has 2 suitors...to much pain involved."

Thanks for your amusing comments, Anon10994.

I agree that in a romantic triangle where three people are involved, sadly at least one person will end up hurt. This doesn't sit comfortably with me and I'm acutely cognisant of the emotions involved.

In my situation, the other gentleman involved - George - is an honest and good man. Whatever happens, I wish him well, as of course, I also do to Tina. I've formed the view that what will be, will be. There's no use worrying about it.

I certainly do appreciate your good wishes though, thank you, mate. (y)

When I write Brisbane, Australia is the location of the language program that is for sale on e-bay. I could be wrong but my understanding is that this is your hometown. I found it and thought I make you aware of this as Tina will need some language teaching after she arrives in Australia. Would I be correct in this assumption? Her daughter may not need the language teaching from I gather you write.

About the dancing in the park, a generation ago that was called Tai Chi. Is this still popular in China. I was there in winter and did not see anybody dancing or Tai Chi in the parks. Minus 20 degrees was my coldest morning.

In one of the articles you wrote about the changes that Tina will have to make. You wrote a list of all the things that will need to be addressed.
There are 2 ways of looking at this: First you could be exited about the prospect of the new country and the opportunity. A fresh start and exiting new challenges to master.

The other way is, that there is no way Tina will manage this. You might say that you can't teach and old dog new tricks. I would say Berry, do not call Tina an old dog. She is much too smart for that.

Seriously, being a migrant myself, I will say this however, it is difficult to assess how a person will respond to the new challenges and tasks that will have to be learned in a new country. I think it is very similar to an emergency situation. Some people will literally freeze, unable to move in the face of danger and other will thrive on the danger and the adrenalin. Sometime you see this on TV how ordinary citizen jump in rescue a person or animal with no training, just pure guts.

I can tell you what is important is connections in a new country. This means family, friends and associates. Everybody needs a social network to function properly.
The happiest people are those with working social connections on all levels. Read the Happiness study that is published.

Berry you are telling me that John is reading the blog before I do. I thought you as the writer would determine the publication date. Can you tell John that I am waiting impatiently to read the next instalments. (plural) Thank you.

Berry all the best always,
Nekko

"Tina will need some language teaching after she arrives in Australia. Would I be correct in this assumption?"

Six months ago I would have said yes to you, Nekko. But over the past few months, Tina's English abilities have slowly yet surely improved. I have yet to confirm however when - or if - she will come to Australia. Thank you for your thoughts however.

As for dancing in the parks, yes, it's still popular. Every big city I've been to, I've seen it. But probably not in the bitter cold of Mongolia! (giggle)

Even the small town of Shawan where Tina lives, dancing occurs each evening. But of course, you must know where to go to find it. So asking a local (or two) would soon solve this problem, if you were curious to see it in your area.

You said,

"do not call Tina an old dog. She is much too smart for that."

You're very humorous, Nekko. Good on you! :D

You said,

"what is important is connections in a new country.....The happiest people are those with working social connections on all levels"

You're exactly correct, Nekko. You're a smart person. Please keep tuned to my future articles. This issue will be addressed in an upcoming one. I hope you like it.

You also said,

"John is reading the blog before I do. I thought you as the writer would determine the publication date. Can you tell John that I am waiting impatiently to read the next instalments. (plural)"

I think your words here have told John what you wished to say in this area. John as the master of this website chooses what is to be published and WHEN it is to be published. Sometimes there's a back up of articles and sometimes there's not. It varies from week to week, I believe.

I think he heard your sentiments though because he published Part 17 today, so he indeed DOES take notice of good and valued clients like you, Nekko! :D
