Asia Sentinel – Taxis – China’s Deep Throats:

“The mistress of the Beijing party chief works there as sales manager,” the cabbie says. “On weekends they go to a villa in western Beijing where he keeps his collection of expensive imported cameras which foreign visitors have given him.” He goes on to describe in detail the private life of Chen Xitong, mayor of Beijing during June 4 and later elevated to the post of party secretary. In the bedroom of the villa, the cabbie adds, Chen had a mirror on the ceiling for an instant replay of his performance.

I feel bad about posting this… but from my experience in Shanghai and Beijing I would say it’s generally an accurate portrayal of the feelings associated with each city. Not super meaningful – no statistics here – but never the less a generally accurate portrayal of the atmosphere in these two very different of chinese cities.

I also think too much foreign information comes by way of TAXI DRIVERS. Would you trust Taxi drivers in San Francisco to give you the inside scoop on the technology business?
