Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Chinese face – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at somebody else.    You are the one who gets burned”

” If you think that your boss is stupid, remember that you would not have a job if he was any smarter”.

A face from China for the photo today, and from high in the hills between the border between China and Tibet.  China has a population of  over 1.35 billion people, increasing by around 12 million people a year.   Due to the one child policy the actual rate of population growth is around 0.5%, and the population density is about the same as in Switzerland or the Czech Republic.    Around 9% of the population are ethnic minorities, such as Tibetans.  The official language is Mandarin Chinese, and a knowledge of about 2000 characters is needed to be literate.      Interestingly, all Chinese share the same written language, even if some simplified characters are sometimes used.


And another from the archives…..a housebus in New Zealand…..
