Ni hao! Finally news from China 🙂
I am writing this post and at the same time the woman in front of me is spitting in her fingers to change the page of the newspaper! I hope to be able to concentrate in my post!
These first days I have been in Hangzhou, a “small” city with 4M habitents and considered by the Chinese a holiday spot. Everything in this city turn around the lake, the west lake!
To be honest with you the Chinese seem very “normal” people and hangzhou is just a developed city as any other in Europe, maybe even more organized!
Chinese love music therefore they like to go to the lake to do some sort of free performances for free… is just a way to spend the afternoon. Typically woman pretend to be man and vice-versa when they choose to sing a typical song. Either they sing very bad or my ears are not used to the tones they use.
I stayed in the Portuguese/Chinese house ran by Cecilia and Luis. It is really funny to see how the hell a portuguese can match a chinese girl. It was really good to be in a real house house again, to lie on the sofa and watch a movie…. This only so far was only beaten by the one described hereafter…
PASTEIS DE NATAAAAA!!!!! They are simply delicious. Moreover they are from KFC, which is maximum 10 min away from wherever you are. How come KFC Dubai doesn’t has this???? They are not pasteis de belem, but they taste neraly as good!
The train to Shanghai was really in adventure. One thing you should know about China is that THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THE FIRST. It doesn’t matter if you are crossing a stress, chossing some clothes to buy, catching a train or driving… you should be the first in the line, whatever that takes! Thaks god I had my big backpack on my back to block the way to the ass-holes that wanted to cross my path 🙂
They should know that portuguese were the first western colonizers here… MUHAHAHAHAH… On my way to Shangai!
I havent find a way to publish pics but I will update the post whenever possible!
