中国–过去30年中发展最疯狂的经济体。I say it's capitalism at it's most extreme.The way this country has rocketed to be the second largest economy in the world after the United States is series of mind boggling numbers in terms of construction and development.

生活在中国-中国国旗

因为这种疯狂的增长速度,各种各样的跨国公司都在中国的各个城市设立了分店,这就意味着大量的外国人已经飞来中国,在一个幽默的城市生活了一段时间。Hence,这些人真的陷入了Living in Chinamantra for a while and have taken on some of the culture and habits of the place.

This means that western folk start absorbing some of the culture and habits of the locals to a point when you are almost accepted as one!But that's the whole point of travelling (and expat life) – is to take on the habits of some of the cultures that you really like and adopt them as your own!

所以这是我的检查清单,如果你在中国呆了很长时间,我会留意的!

伟大的职位!

I don't think you even need to have lived in China for most of these to strike a chord.I think my favourite items on menus I saw in my three weeks in China were "f*ck a bullfrog" and "millet pepper loves big c*ck"…don't ask!
