Chinesische Mauer

Chinese Walls The Chinese Wall is a symbol for the long time successful protection against everything foreign. Traditionally, everything in China was protected by walls: from small things like family homes to large things like the entire country. Even today the government tries to protect China from too strong a foreign influence, whereas the Chinese are often fascinated by modernization and development and the glittering diversity coming along with this progress.


Negotiations and Meals Physical well being and eating is essential for the Chinese. Thus the meal offered to us when visiting a small factory in a rural area was delicious and it did not matter that it was served in enamel bowls and in an empty storeroom. Meals comprise an important sociable component: stagnating negotiations, where both sides left the meeting rather displeased, may well gathered momentum sometime in the course of a dinner.


Chinese Traffic Rules The pictures I usually saw on my way to work in Beijing were those of heavy traffic, people on their way to their place of work by car, bus, motorcycle, bicycle or foot. Sometimes, however, I wanted to see the city wake up, I wanted to see how its inhabitants get ready for the new day. If you go out at the break of dawn, you will meet many Chinese who practice their early morning exercise open-air. Of course open-air ? just imagine the number of gyms and fitness centers required for all those active Chinese? And more often than not they practice in groups: Qi Gong, traditional shadow boxing in various forms, ballroom dance, Chinese dance, gymnastics and aerobics. They practice in parks, on public squares and e.g. on the side of stadium entrances ? on one side of the entrance disco dance music is booming out of a boom box for the aerobic students who know exactly which sequence of steps belongs to which tune, on the opposite side there is another recorder that emits waltz or tango music. And those who did not make it in the morning or have not had enough exercise can join another group with similar goings in the evening after work.
