yeah busy is not the way to describe this place dont think i could ever drive here i think it would be some thing you would be born into seems no one pays any attention to any form of road rules that we are accustom to red lights dont mean stop zebra crossings are just marks on the road and i have found out dont look at the vehicle comming at you as if you do it confuses them .they know where there heading regardless and a horn blast is not to warn you only that they are comming through choppers non existant but lots of long weird moped thingies cheers again its time to eat

The worst thing i found as food in China was the chooks foot dish, all bones and marinated in chook *#@** for how many years, no thanks but the pie-goo(spelt as it sounds) basiclly barbeque pork ribs deep fried in batter yummmmmm. Although we did go to a resturaunt in gaungzhou that specializes in rat, before you go yuck these are not street rats but they are specially bred and farmed rats and are fooking huge.

well it was on again last night hosted this time by the president of a factory complex that will provide labour etc for our project attended by another 8 officials from other factorys including 1 of the mr xui's who decided he would drink wine instead of bajiu(rocket fuel)and passed his glass to me they made some new rules each glass was to be emptied in four toasts .well i managed that before declining more and whilst still being able to have some senses drank beer instead from then on.the tucker was a little more civilised apart from halved duck heads brewed in slime ,soft shelled turtles,and an unimaginable slop of i dont know what . a massive salad platter found its way to my belly my excuse beeing i had eaten to much lunch.lucky to get away with that one.every one was then taken to have foot massages. just how good are they istill feel great today.tex the rutherford hillton has some catching up to do for sure my room is about five times the size .the bathroom area is about 1.5 the size of the hillton.and not a roach to be found.as for hanging out with grey haired old bikies you know the answer to that and it will be good not to be the only person with facial hair seems im like a monkey in a cage every one looks at least twice at me blonde hair blue eyes gi mullet and manchou i dont think im that much different? well not sure about this evening but probably another formal . cheers

just got back from what i thought was a visit to a factory with our chinese host it turns out it was an invitation to dinner with his best friend who is senior head of the gas and oil fields dongying provence yep you guessed it great big round table massive lazy susan covered in all sorts of chinese delites manditory toasting glasses and enough other guests to stick it to us ausies with each taking turns to bottom ups with the ausies so i pleaded gut problems and was allowed to drink beer instead of rocket fuel seven largies latter dinner toasting was over in an hour and a half so i figure if i had earlier notice and not primed up before the visit (meal) i reckon i may have been able to knock off mr wongs record of 12 largies in a three hour sitting ande still eaten dinner. but to be honest i would not have stolen his thunder and only given it a close nudge . i would hate to take away bragging rights from new friends so soon . anyway am starting to get too used to this sort of behaviour and hope there is not to many more factory visits before we come home . cheers steve :cry:
