ChongQing: The Chicago of China « China/Taiwan »

China has this thing about comparing various locations to more famous locations in the West.

For instance, Qingdao is China's Hawaii. Dalian is China's San Francisco. Shanghai is China's Paris (although I think China's New York might be a better comparison).

In any case, as the title says, ChongQing is now being compared to Chicago...although more in a hopeful sense, rather than with conviction.

On a side note, "Fengkuang de Shitou" ("Crazy Stone"), wonderfully complex and amusing heist film, is set in ChongQing.

For Mandarin speakers: beware! They use lots of ChongQing (Sichuan) dialect in the film. On the other hand, one of the thieves looks/acts like a Chinese Steve Buscemi!

Good post. I study one thing tougher on distinct blogs daily. It need to continually be stimulating to study content material from different writers and observe slightly a thing from their shop. I’d wish to use some together with the content on my weblog whether or not you do not mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link within your web weblog. Thanks for sharing.

I've learned result-oriented things via your blog site. One other thing I'd really like to say is newer computer operating systems have a tendency to allow much more memory to be used, but they also demand more memory simply to work. If people's computer is unable to handle additional memory and also the newest program requires that memory increase, it is usually the time to shop for a new Laptop. Thanks
