China: A Lot Like the West, But Not

too late
Should have thought about that before booking that trip to Shanghai

Here’s an amusing excerpt from a book entitled Country Driving: A Journey through China from Farm to Factory:

And some of the questions I had seen on the written Chinese driver’s exam weren’t exactly reassuring: No 344: “If you see an accident and the people need help, you should a) continue driving; b) stop, do what you can to help and contact the police; c) stop, see if the people offer a reward, and then help.”

Kinda reminds me of Mexico, actually. Minus the drug cartel death squads. And kidnapping. And, other, assorted mayhem. But fun article (and I imagine book), so read it all.
