Enough Elbow Room?

With 1.3 billion people, this is a busy place. 49 cities of more than 1 million people, most of them you never heard about.

Well, I borrowed this line from the book China Road that I mentioned in a previous posting.

With 1.3 billion people, this is a busy place. 49 cities of more than 1 million people, most of them you never heard about. Even Xiamen where we are is 3 million people. And most of us have never heard about it, right?

People all around… It reminds me of a funny situation. A few days ago, visiting apartments with a real estate agent. Suddenly at the corner of a building, a couple of people join us, no introduction, no idea who they are, where they come from, how do they know about what we are doing, or why they joined us. A few minutes later, two more people joined… before I knew it, there were 6 of us visiting the apartment with us, and they disappear one by one as strangely as they had appeared…

That afternoon the story repeated itself several times. Another exotic moment…
