I just finished reading China Underground by Zachary Mexico, an American musician, bar owner, who studied Chinese and spent a few years in China. The book chronicles the wild and crazier side of China. It's easy to read -- each essay is very short, usually describes the life of a Chinese and their "adventures." One of them is about the punk rock scene in Wuhan, China, and another one about prostitution in China.
I confess I was a bit envious of the author after reading the book. It's like, dammit, I could've written the book too, if I were a little bit more talented in writing and if I were a cool white punk kid... for some reason, I don't think a Chinese chick writing it would be as well received... maybe I should adopt a pseudonym like Cat Venezuela... and write about all the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll I witnessed in China... Here are a few wild tales for your reading pleasure:
Amazon Women and Woman with a Pompom: I was at a fancy bar at one of the fanciest hotels in Beijing. I was sipping on a martini when two nicely dressed Italian gentlemen in their 50s sat next to our lounge pad. They themselves were not too amusing, but they were followed by two young Chinese women who stood well over 6 feet tall! Hmmm. At first I thought the women were gold diggers, but alas, after a while, it turned out they were models discussing business opportunities... interestingly they were later on joined by another fashionably dressed Chinese woman in her early 20s. And curiously, she was wearing a headband with a tennis ball sized pompom smacked on top... So imagine the picture, two Italian gentlemen, two Amazon Chinese women and a Chinese woman with a pompom on her head... you see weird things like this in China all the time.
Alright, enough for tonight... maybe I'll chronicle my visit to a "Karoake" bar next time...
No, silly, no one wants to read about a Chinese girl visiting China.
If you want to write a book, you have to move to some place with no Chinese people and write about your wild adventures among the wild and crazy foreigners you meet.
I figured as much. Sigh, where can I go... maybe Lisbon or Tahiti? That's one of the few places on the globe without many Chinese ppl...
Sorry, there are Chinese ppl everywhere. But you can definitely write one of those books about Chinese restaurants around the world, especially in really random places.
Or about global airport food. :)
airport food. ewe. no one's gonna wanna read that.
You once told us you had the BEST Korean bbq in an airport. :)
I bet frequent travelers would be curious to know interesting trivia about the world's airports, tips about getting through them smoothly, how to kill time if you're stuck there, where to eat that's actually interesting or at least not bad, etc.
Really, thinking hard...airports running through head.. Incheon, HKG, Beijing... hmmm...
