Life is full of tough decision making process -3

Let me talk a little bit more about China. This time, I did not go to Beijing. I did not visit to Shanghai. But, even medium size city of Anshan, close to Shen Yang and Ta Lian, the change was obvious. Good European cars, such as Volvo, Audi, BMW, Mercedes were easily spotted in city. People seemed to take taxis instead of using old crowded bus.

Young boys and girls were dressed in the way they like. They did not seem to be so much different from ones seen in San Francisco or Tokyo. Especially young women dressed much more fashionable than before. Even blue jeans they wear were more fashionable than just simple blue jeans like before. Many had decorations with flower or butterfly, or sometimes National flag like mark embroideries and were nice looking boots-cut. No Chinese stereo type guys clothes used to be half-sleeve white shirt, dark trousers, and black or brown leather shoes. More middle aged gentlemen were wearing polo shirts and cotton pants looked much better than before.

My wife shared same feeling as mine. She told me that her way of wearing American style does not stand out any more simply because everybody else wear like modern style.

My wife's family invited me for dinner for welcoming me visiting after relatively long time. Expensive restaurant on Saturday was full of family people taking their kids for dinner.

Chinese economic situation looked far better than US.

Hi Shaw ..yes it does seem to be the economy of the future - but with restrictions, when we've been used to our freedoms .. I can see some of your dilemma. Good that you can be with Chinese family friends ..

Thanks -

Hello Hilary,

The change in China was exactly like the one I have seen happening in Tokyo after Tokyo Olympic. Chinese economy will further grow if same happens as happened in Tokyo. It may be bigger because of population = market size.

But as you say I was almost shocked by the fact that I could not access to some major sites. Still these restrictions exists there.

Thank you for your comment.

Hi Dan & Deanna,

Thinking back about the trip, it was good trip overall. Also important part is to see the people who we have not seen years, as you say.

Thank you for your comment.
