You can't handle the !

Who remembers that old thing? Talk about dusting off old antiques from the attic...whew!
Well, I wish they would resurrect it here in China. Actually, you get used to the smoking after a while. After all, a love of or tendency toward smoking is quite common in many countries around the world. But the thing I don't get, the thing that annoys me the most, is a bicyclist with the handlebars in one hand and a cigarette in the other. What? You couldn't wait ten minutes? Or at least pull over to the side of the road?
Not only is one-handed bicycle smoking (which sounds like my favorite new Olympic sport!) dangerous. Especially since the Chinese - generally speaking - are bad enough in the traffic and transportation department without devoting half of the balance in their upper body - and most of their attention - to smoking a cigarette. But they consistently blow smoke in the face of the person cycling behind, which - on numerous occasions - has been me. I'm already getting the black lung. I don't need cancer and emphysema, too.
Wow - I've been ranting a lot lately. Perhaps it's time for a vacation. Or my nap. Makes me actually miss Laiwu...

THE WILD WILD EAST: Everything you never knew you didn't know about life on the other side.
In China, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The Chinese, who call this land "home," and the expats who migrate here. My name is Rachel. I am an expat. These are my stories.

None of the features on this site are real (except in my own distorted view of reality), nor are they intended to harm the subjects mentioned. This site uses fictional names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized or when I choose to use this site as a platform for someone's public humiliation (usually my own).

Despite the trivial nature of my random daily (sometimes weekly) musings, I hope you enjoy your stay at my site. If there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ring up the concierge, because I just travel in style like that. Have a pleasant stay and I hope that you will come see us again soon!
