Many of my male knuckle-dragging friends back home have asked me, “Cut the bullshit Barry, what do you really think of China?”.  Initially I only told them the good things, the exciting things, about the place. But as time went on, I realised this wasn't really doing them any good.  I now prefer complete honesty, giving them the whole story, both good and bad, so they can make a well informed decision as to whether to come here  - or more importantly, to work here  -  or not.

I wanted to buy something for my home, something Chinese.  So, I bought two wooden calligraphies, a small one and a big one.
