Went to a 'Hutong' in Beijing today which is basically a Chinese slum where people live in poor conditions sometimes 3 or 4 families to a tiny concrete house with public communal restrooms for the whole street. This place made 'Angeles Ashes' look luxurious. Two little boys of about 4 & 5 were fascinated, as we are probably the first westerners they have saw. Gave them 100 New Chinese Yen which is a fortune to them (about $12)..... looking at them jumping up and down waving the money about

Being told on another forum that I know nothing about live in New Zealand because Im living in America!!!!
Funny because I spent the first 40 years of my life there, still have family there & make annual trips home to visit.......yep I know nothing about the place, I must have had blinkers on all my life & didnt even know about them so thats what made me smile today

The drive to work - the sunshine, the mountains, the palm trees, the empty-ish freeway , ACDC's "Back in Black" on the CD and the beauty of these lyrics:

Don't you struggle
Don't you fight
Don't you worry
'Cause it's your turn tonight

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife
