Title: China
Type: production note
Date: December 26th, 2005

Ah China! The land of paradox and contrast! A land where different centuries seem to co-exist. A guy in tattered peasant's clothes sells fish from a bamboo basket in front of a super-highrise. A horsecart shares the road with a bike and a BMW. You can eat dog meat and wash it down with a Coke. Strangers will invite you home for a meal, but they'll also run you over.

Don't believe the hype, positive or negative. It's not the next get-rich-quick capitalist playground. It's not the Hell on earth Richard Gere would have you believe. It's somewhere in the middle, just like the place you are now.
