An Investment Opportunity With Two Chinas

andrewinschool

Earlier this week, my wife Pele and I crouched beside a small fire, a handful of miles from the Chinese town of Yungshuo.

Keeping us company was a school principal and an elementary teacher. The principal added charcoal to the wok-like pit as carbon monoxide rose from the flames.

We weren’t on a winter camping trip.  Instead, we were in a Chinese school’s administrative building, which doubled as a teacher’s staff room.  Pele and I were there as part of a service trip with 20 tenth grade students from Singapore American School.

    Since you mentioned the thriving tourist industry there. . I’m assuming this is “Yangshuo” in Guilin Province. One of the first places I ever visited in China. A hopping thriving destination for the amazing karst mountains and rivers and rice paddies. The vast difference in wealth inside China is indeed staggering. .and the primary reason the government is always primarily concerned with internal affairs rather than international affairs. Just trying to prevent the next revolution.

    Since most Singaporeans are of Chinese descent it was nice that you could take them to visit the “motherland”.
