Hangzhou

Everybody told me that Hangzhou is the place where all Shanghainese go when they need some air.
It is indeed a very green place. I was there 3 years ago. Spent a week alone, by my own. My personal experience of "take care of yourself in China".


It was there that I ate the most incredibly good chicken ever. But I was totally unable to tell the name to anyone so I can enjoy it again ...
But this time, we went altogether (my wife and friends) back to the same place (a little youth hotel, that is actually SUPER famous for this particular cuisine).

Jiao Ma Chicken. This was great again. Same taste. Exactly like I remembered !
I was told that it is impossible to find the same taste anywhere else ...

So bad Hangzhou is 2hrs train from Shanghai. Cannot go there just for dinner !

The photo is "just" tea. Famous place for its tea as well (something like the Bordeaux of China, I guess).

Love China ?

You probably already heard of the "Love China" leitmotif tsunami (believe me).
You probably heard of some "riots" against the terrible French man (not in Shanghai) .

So, let's read some more interesting news :

"More than 80,000 people were killed in traffic accidents in China last year, making the country's roads the deadliest in the world."
I am surprised...

"A 1993 nude photo of Carla Bruni, French President Sarkozy's wife, has been sold at Christie's in NYC for $91,000 to an unnamed Chinese art collector"
Apparently, the call for a the boycott of French products in China hasn't reached the French First Lady's body.

"Coca-Cola Zero makes Shanghai debut"
Ah ... you cannot understand ... here everything is just so NOT light. This was a must.

"China, already the world leader in cellphone use, has surpassed the USA as the No. 1 nation in Internet users."
But to be fair, the percentage of American users — 71% — still exceeds China's 17%.
China has 1.3 billion people, compared with nearly 304 million in the US.
