Finding what's ancient in a modern nation
(more about my travels in China)

One Day in Luohu

A wise old friend of mine (a German with the unlikely surname of "Kurotobi") once shared a proverb with me: "The man who has one bike in Shenzhen has two."


Well, he explained, there's the one that you ride, and that one is a replacement for the one that has been stolen and is being ridden by someone else.

Ah. Now THAT'S wisdom!

So one day Lila and I went out with Stefano and Farah and the kids. We ended up walking through a swanky mall and coming out to get into taxis. As we were boarding, I looked down at the sidewalk, and saw the image above.

No matter how good the lock...
