Libertate, egalitate, fraternitate..sau poate doar libertate :)

China este departe de multe din lucrurile pe care mi le-am imaginat. Eu la fel ca si ceilalti straini cu care am vorbit, avem un sentiment de libertate aici. Nimeni nu are un plan, nimeni nu are griji, cu totii sunt dispusi sa faca orice oricand. Nu te simti constrans de socitate, pentru ca nu par sa fie reguli sociale, cu atat mai mult cu cat nu faci parte din cultura lor. Nu te simti constrans la munca, nu simti nici o presiune, esti liber. Am crezut ca o sa vad multa politie inarmata pe strazi, dar tin sa precizez ca nu am vazut nici un politist pana acum. Am vazut doi jandarmi care se chinuiau sa dirijeze traficul si unul care juca carti la colt de strada.

ENGLISH version

China is far from many things that I had imagined. Myself just the other foreigners with whom I spoke, we have a sense of freedom here. Nobody has a plan, no one cares, we are all willing to do anything anytime. You do not feel constrained by the society, because there seem to be no social rules, especially because you’re not part of their culture anyway. You don’t feel any pressure at work, you’re free. I thought I will be seeing more armed police on the streets, but I must say that I have not seen any police yet. I only saw few officers, the ones that look after the public safety,  two struggling to generate traffic and one other who was playing cards at the street corner.
