What is culture?  What is "face"?  Is it relevant for intercultural communication?  With Globalization making the World seemingly smaller and smaller is there any differences between Cultures now?  The notions of face and self-image are considered universal characteristics, and yet they are conceptualized differently from one culture to another, depending on the underlying cultural values and beliefs. What do you consider to be a major aspect of the intercultural communication between you and Chinese?  Do you believe Chinese are inscrutable?  Do Chinese believe Westerners are "too open"?  People and things are increasingly out of place’especially due to easier travel from many countries to China and vice versa. But at the same time, we are discovering that the most heavily policed frontiers are not physical but linguistic and cultural. Read more…

It was morning in Shawan.  Tina and I had just finished breakfast.  I had no idea what she gave me to eat each morning, it was some sort of noodle concoction that tasted somewhat bland yet was nice enough.  Back home, my breakfast typically consisted of a bowl full of almonds, cashews, brazil nuts and pecans.   Topped off with half a cup of mixed pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

It had proven to be an extremely tough yet fascinating day.  Tina and I had just returned from a three hour hike in the dark aroundthe myriad ridges, gullies and foothills surrounding her home town of Shawan.  We’d badly miscalculated though on how much daylight was left in the day, after being both entertained and intrigued by a visit to a half completed monastery in the distant hills.  Being somewhat remote, hardly anyone visited the place, so upon spotting us, the caretaker monk there had been only too pleased to show us around.  Read more…

Tina and I had a two hour trek back to home.  Probably a lot longer than this, due to the fact we had no light or torch to help guide us through the treacherous scrub.  Hiking in the dark hills around Shawan on a pitch black, moonless night was certainly not for the faint of heart.  Especially when out of the blackness, a low rumbling noise mysteriously appeared, causing both Tina and I to suddenly feel quite frightened.  Read more…

Day 16 dawned.  Damn, these days were going fast.  Einstein was wrong  - time in fact wasn't moving ahead uniformly - it was inexorably accelerating! Read more…

We woke up late the next morning, It was already 10am when Jeff and I got up and we wanted to go to the beach. He went to the other room to wake her mother and Mandy up, came back and said, Mandy and her mother didn't want to go to the beach because it was too hot and they were afraid of burning their skins. They wanted to go in the evening time. Finally we agreed to go, but they were going to stay in the shades. Jeff was very happy because I promised him I was going to teach him how to swim properly.

I would like to give a suspension to the articles of” travel to Germany”. It seems there are not so many people who like to talk of Germans or Germany, especially for the older people, they hate to talk about Germans and they think the crimes that the Germans committed in World War II were inexcusable. One of the friends here told me about his feelings to Germans like that.  But I, as a young generation in China, I don’t hate the Germans like that.  But I understand that the people in my parents’ generation hate the Japanese very much. My mother heard about too many sad stories in her childhood, and my grandmother herself exactly experienced the disaster in China made by the Japanese. She saw that, and she heard that herself.  So they have very strong hatred to the Japanese. Last week our Mr. Xi visited Europe and he made a wonderful speech in Germany. He warned the Japanese right-wingers and expressed clearly our posture on the international issues.  Nowadays the Germans and Japanese are so different on their acknowledges to the Wars.  Most of Chinese hate Japanese, but very few hate Germans.

In his eBook “Online Dating in Seven Steps,” John states that free online dating sites pretty much follow the old adage “you get what you pay for.” While I had no reason to doubt him on this, I am also an empiricist, the sort of person who needs to find things out for himself.  This has gotten me in trouble more than a few times in my life, starting in Catholic grade school. My inherent skepticism was not appreciated then, and people have not exactly warmed to it in the ensuing years. And so it was with the free dating sites. I just had to see if the situation was as desolate as it was depicted. Read more…
