    Given the 'PR' spouted by the Chin it brings perceived advances over the last few decades into a new light wondering if they crap into a hole in the 'garden' or are as advanced as the south of Italy with their ceramic bordered holes in the floor, albeit with two moulded features for the shitter to place their bare feet in the vain attempt to keep themselves 'clean'.

    In the circumstances I am amazed they have more than 100M visitors at present.

    China is on my list to visit as soon as work commitments allows. What an amazing place to see and experience. It is a country going through incredible changes.

    China is now in the top ten wine producing countries, behind Chile but ahead of Argentina. Whodathoughtit?
