I tend to agree with this guy, i just left China last week and never did get to Chengdu but i found his article right on the money. This country has got to have the most ignorant people on the face of the planet not to forget how racist they are toward anything with a hint of color although they will never admit to it. The upper class were well educated but as far as the middle class or working class wow, these people are like machines they will walk right into a car coming right at them and not move out of the way, while spitting or taking a piss on a monument or street corner. My time in China was that of a traveler and i had a good time but i could not believe how dirty it was, its like the sister of India without English or any courtesy of any kind. Pushing through people to get to the front of a line for any cause these people are nuts, the trains were good but even though my Chinese is of a mid level they would just say "ting bu dong 100 times" Every free space has something in it and or garbage or a kid dumping a hot steaming load on the street. I found the food good and clean never did get sick, but very oily.
The other thing i noticed was scams and fraud in every level. I would not even dare say for i do wish to return, i find China a good visit but be prepared, stick to HI hostels and hotels of good standing. For me it seemed like a million police standing around doing nothing and drunk drivers everywhere. I met a lot of foreigners mostly washed up teachers in hostels with a million stories about how crappy it was, i wish i went to Chengdu man i heard it was cool. I was in Sanya mostly and the south. I look forward to my next visit with my wife. Someone please address the racism issue, its the worst i have ever seen in my life.
Rock on David nice story i am a fan long time love you love you long time sucky sucky
