    Baie goed, Gert, except I couldn't follow much of the 'Howzit' video. Know any instant Afrikaans to English to Strine subtitle systems? By the way, did you know that the rhino is a very rich animal, from the original 'rhinosorass', derived from 'rhino' meaning money and 'sorass' meaning piles, hence 'piles of money' . 🤣

    #11 To say America hasnt brutalized its own citizens in a simillar light is a lie. I am aware of the incident you speak of and i could point to something simillar in every country. I was just talking about how America demonizes China. America helped create their pollution problem. Hints why everything says made in China to cater to our consumer country. You call them a communist country. I have only a vague understanding of these political terms but our democratic country isnt working for me. I dont necessarily think a democarcy is a good thing. What if there are simply more racists in a society or idiots. I dont think dictatorship is okay either. I have to point to Donald Trump being president once again. That was like five steps back for America. China is a collective country. Yes the indvidual is not more important than the group and im sick of Americas wild indvidualisitc streak because we have become selfish people as indvidulas and as a country. We are a greedy people who fight for flayboyant rights like unsex bathrooms are are big fight in America and i think thats such a waste of energy to cater to a minscule precent of the population. There are just bigger issues at hand than boys wearing dresses and i say that as a fairly andrygenous person who struggles with gender rules. As far as China goes, the dragon has woken. Its the new power house. If you want to get ahead you would allign yourself with the dragon. If any place needs good teachers, its China. China takes care of me betrer than America ever has,. I am treated with more respect. I am honored in China. I am devalued in America. I am not a patriot. I am a world leader. My business is not to be a politcian in China itz to teach and perhaps I can open some minds and do what a good teacher does. In China i have far more ability to shape the world and live a good life and thats why China because i am not imprisioned in my society or theirs. I am free.

    Lyon, I don't mean to "rain on your parade" but do you have any concerns about China being a communist country? This is most visible within China's government and military. In fact, I'm old enough to remember the brutal and bloody massacre of students demonstrating for democracy in Tiananmen Square.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiananmen_Square_protests_of_1989
    I actually wrote about this for my college newspaper at the time and will never forget how many young innocent lives were lost due to ruthless government/military crack down and slaughter of countless young civilians. How much has changed? Any concerns? Why China? I pose the same questions to your friend, @Dean Owen. Please enlighten me. Many thanks!

    #4 Well by all means do keep blogging, Lyon! I'm glad things are looking up for you after your misadventure in Florida. You've also got a refreshingly positive view of America when you acknowledge the progress that has been made re slavery...plenty of work still to be done eliminating racism but as Obama pointed out in his last address to the American people, progress STILL moves forward, even if it's often two steps forward one step back. (Or one giant Orange Human Cheeto of a leap back). China's a very interesting country - Communist yet capitalist, involved heavily in global political affairs even as it obsessively tries to control what its citizens see. There will be more market exchange because, as I pointed out to a friend this weekend, "They want our shit and we want theirs." To buy, not to invade :)

    #1 @Nicole Chardenet China is very complicated. They have made mistakes, but they have made tremendous progress. The younger generation will certainly sort things out. Don't forget our own nation was a slave nation, but things got sorted out because of the more progessive people. I am not going to China for pleasure but for business, but trust me China is full of pleasure and promise. As a blogger, I'm already thinking I am going to have to frequent Hong Kong to post or something. Hopefully, I can get my VPN working. Anyways, yes the Chinese favored boys and now they have a huge population imbalance, but don't make the mistake of thinking it's the men who don't pick women. I think the women certainly have many options including foreigners.

    Very interesting commentary. Thank you, Lyon! I don't know if I could live in a country with such limited freedoms, where you need to be concerned about the government suddenly deciding you're a spy or something. What I've never figured out is why Chinese young women have such a short 'expiry date' re marriage material. Didn't the Chinese kill off or abort their female babies for years because of the one-child rule? https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/china-s-new-birth-rule-can-t-restore-missing-women-and-fix-a-population/ Yet when I was writing about China's Singles Day last November I kept finding that men considered a woman 'over the hill' for marriage by like 25. And I thought, Hmmmm, beggars can't be choosers now, can they? And, maybe it's time to bring polyandry back? :)

    I have seen the Mangroves in South Florida (where I believe they are protected) and in Haiti, but have not spent any time walking or wading through them. This article inspires me to take a closer look the next time I have a chance. I guess I'd better pack a bugsuit though! We joke around here that the Mosquito could be the "Minnesota State Bird", as they do come out in droves in the summer, but the Mangroves may have me rethink the word "droves". . .

    Its unfortunate to see coastal development destroying this ecological treasure. You'd think we, as a species, would learn.

    I grew up in Florida, where Mangroves contribute to the health of the coastline, especially in South Florida. They are true natives to the state of Florida and state and local regulations are set to protect them. They are considered one of Florida's most important resources. And yes, Avon's Skin-so-Soft is a great mosquito repellent. Thank you for the excellent read, @Paul Walters.

Yep, and pretty much all photos used in my articles are mine. I suspect the primates are attracted to grey, black, and silver as these were the items they seem to like snatching!

    #7 Not quite a PCN but a PNP (Pommy Nip Polack) which doesn't show from my name, but Owen used to be Cohen before my grandparents escaped Poland for England. The last pic was at Uluwatu.

    #8 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher Hi Lisa and greetings from Bali. I do indeed use FB . Most posts are shared there ( along with others ) and thanks to PCN @Dean Owen who kindly puts them up on cafe beBEE

    Very interesting @Dean Owen. I've seen these primates in Zoo's but never up close and personal as you described. By the way, I found this on Facebook, very helpful considering I miss posts of those I so enjoy reading. Hint to anyone else @Paul Walters or @Ken Boddie, let me know if you use Facebook! Ok, if one of those Monkeys came close to me, people would probably see me running and of course I would be the laughing joke. I love the photo near the water, did you take that? I hear they are attracted to pink shorts! ;-)

    @Dean Owen A Pommy, Chinese ,Nipon... or PCN which makes for a great acronym ...another gem from the Bodie. I tend to avoid the monkeys in Ubud but find the ones in Ullawatu a lot for formidable . I have seen many a pair of designer sunglasses snatched from the faces of tourists be tossed off the cliffs when the primate became bored with their booty !!! Nice piece as always and love your pics!

    #5 Yep, I drove to Gib a long time ago to see a friend. Funny driving to Gib from Spain as you have to switch road sides. Remember the monkeys shaking the lamp posts.

    I came across quite a few of them when I was in Gibraltar :-) but the forest is smaller yet they share the same thirst for mischief :-)

    Bargaining with the monkey definitely made me smile. It sounds like a wonderful place.

    #1 The Aussies make great tourists in my opinion. I was surprised to see them in the top ten worst behaved list! http://www.businessinsider.com/worst-behaved-tourists-2013-5?IR=T&r=US&IR=T/#10-brazil-a-significant-percentage-of-respondents-felt-that-brazilians-were-the-most-naughty-of-all-world-travelers-were-betting-that-number-spikes-come-world-cup-season--1

    Happy days, Dean-san. Monkey see, monkey do. Glad to know they still let "even Aussies" into this thieves paradise. 🤣 Mind you there are some "dangly bits" best covered up rather than lost. Not quite ready to sing soprano in the choir as yet. 😝
    Masterfully written post and not bad for a Pommy Chinese Nippon. 😂

    In this video I explore my old neighbourhood in new Shanghai. This was where I spent the last 8 years. As you can see, a sharp contrast with the first video, this part of town is very cosmopolitan, and just a wonderful place to live, right in the heart of Shanghai. Probably not the kind of scenes you'd expect from China.

    #6 Yes it tears me up that cities around the world are becoming quite generic in appearance. Starbucks, with 2,200 locations in China and growing at 500 new locations a year, is replacing the traditional tea houses. MacD's, Burger King's, KFCs and Dairy Queen's are everywhere. Starbucks in Disneyland Shanghai is their most profitable store in the World. I wouldn't mind so much if Cinnabon and Carl's Jr came to China, but they are not doing well with their stores in the rest of Asia. Asians just find Cinnabons too sweet and Carl's Jr burgers too big I guess. Kind of why I needed to make a move to old Shanghai, but even here I have all these stores 5 minutes away....

    You were spot on, I felt like I was looking at a European city, not China. Beautiful architecture, but have to say I think I enjoyed the simplicity of your new neighborhood. But isn't it great you can spend time in both the old and new China?

    #1 Well I do live in a nation deprived of coffee for centuries, and this last decade there has been a coffee explosion! I remember coming to China to work in 2008, and the Chairman of our joint venture, my counterpart, gave me a welcome gift. It was a jar of instant coffee. I went to my secretary and went "Huh?" and she explained that instant coffee was a premium good and it was a prestigious gift. No longer. Now it's Nespresso capsule gift boxes!
