The First Full Day

Below are some pictures of the day. The major non-shot event: a gigantic Billboard of Mount Rushmore. And when you're finished with the pictures, a quick blog note: Catholicgauze was linked to by Little Green Footballs. Congrats!

The Flags of Two Countries. One is a godless, statist regime facing economic stagnation and demographic decay. The other is the People's Republic of China.

Younghusband,

The apartment and the neighborhood are just gorgeous. It is in north-west Beijing, near the Chinese Agricultural University. More pictures have since been posted

Economic stagnation in France ? What a good joke..All the statistics show that France will be the N°1 Economy in Europe in a few decades... And France is actually, in 2007, one of the wealthiest and richest country in the world... Well France will n°1 in Europe Thanks to ?? Its birth rate, the highest in European Union after Ireland...So, i don't think that "facing economic stagnation and demographic decay" is accurate...Please, reads some stats before post some hilarious stuff like this, that's really a PITY ! Haha your lack of culture make me lough so much thanks !

Adrien,

Thanks for stopping by, and for the comment!

I'm unaware of data showing that the French economy will exceed the British economy in a few decades -- could you post the link?

I'm aware of a recent bump in the French birthrate -- I wonder of the demographics, though (France of course not reporting racial or ethnic information in her census). A France which grows bigger only by growing increasing Islamic may not be in the best interests of European civilization.

Going to China is the hell of a experience. Many things and situations may result in culture shock, since you are a stranger yourself in a country where manners and customs change a lot.
