It has been a long time since I posted here, sorry about that. I have been busy in the process of settling down which has afforded me some observations which I will share over coming days. These are some of the observations I have had since we have been in Shanghai but I was trying to collect more instances, reasons or facts before presenting them to you. Some of these are based on discussions with a few of my colleagues while others are my own observations over last 2 months. Please read this more as a tidbit to be enjoyed rather than authentic cultural information. There are very good sites out there which can provide you good information about culture, Chinese-tools.com has been a recent find for me which I have liked. Some of the topics I want to cover are as follows:
- Marriages and how they are different from India
- Traffic conditions
- Getting books in China
- Many chinese websites have numbers in them, is there any reason?
- Learning Chinese is hard if you only know English!
- About Chinese people
Let me know if you have questions that you would like me to address through these posts, or additional ones.
