Happy Chinese New Year!

Last week I received an invitation for this Saturday’s night – it was a scary warning ..

Nimen hao!

Like you may experienced in the last 2 evenings North Korea, under control of its new president Kim Jong Pijiu, seems to start a war against beautiful Shenyang. To observe the enemies actions Jonas and I discovered a roof which seems to be a safe place to survive. Like you can read in the kitchen’s newspaper the first peak of the enemies attack will take place on Sunday, 9 pm. Therefore we recommend you to get some provision (Meat & Mons) and joins us at this date on the roof of our apartment. To stay warm in coming Cold War Part II we decided to make a little barbecue for which we need a person who will organize some coals. In case of an unexpected discovery by the North Korean waves we suggest you to prepare yourself with fireworks and some Triple C rockets to defend He Pan Chin Chan.
Hopefully see u on Sunday. Uninjured and alive.

Best Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen / 诚挚的问候

Living Food

or whatever you want to call this poor fella that I met in the northern part of Shenyang. Even though all the bird flu, SARS and countless other deseases have hit Asia and especially China quite hard the chinese people still strongly prefer living food in the middle of their streets. From my own first hand smelling experience I can promise you that this can’t be healthy. Nevertheless I have to admit that the food is marvelous in this country – so it can’t be that bad after all!

Living in 中国 – Part 2

My first couple of days are over here in my new home in china and besides posting photos all around I have also decided to do a small first mesh up of video clips. Don’t worry if this episode of Living in 中国 is a little to hectic – thats just how life is here. My first few days in the city if Shenyang cover some of the following topics:

  • Buying Food
  • Buying Bikes
  • Making fools out of us by not being able to speak chinese
  • A wonderful city and its inhabitants

Thanks for this episode can only go to all the wonderful chinese people who can not speak english but are one of the nicest kind in the world. They will always help you out even if that means calling the whole street up to help to large weird looking individuals – China is surprising me for good!

My first Panoramic Picture in China

Is depicting the Hunhe RIver in Shenyang. The fishers on the shore urged me to stay half an hour longer but I really had to go because all the little mosquitos where a little to fond of me. Next time though I will stay longer anyway because from what I have heard their are some beautiful lights going on later in the night.
