Observations in Tealand

Standard

Although dogs are eaten this is very rare. Asking someone, ”do you eat dogs?” is like asking a Britisher is he wears a bowler.

Everyone wears Western clothes. Traditional clothing is fancy dress for posed photos.

Restaurants seldom serve water. They serve green tea instead. If water is offered it is hot.

There are few buildings older than 50 years.

People are mainly thin despite there being so many all you can eat restaurants.

Children all wear school uniform which is mostly a track suit.

People are apolitical. There is no mention of the Great Helmsman.

There are many signs in English despite few people being able to read them.

There is no hostility towards ghost people and nor are Occidentals much of a curiosity.

Dogs are honoured pets and they are fashionable.

Live turtles in a bag are sold in supermarkets.

Facebook, gmail, google and so on are blocked.

About Calers

Born Belfast 1971. I read history at Edinburgh. I did a Master's at UCL. I have semi-libertarian right wing opinions. I am married with a daughter and a son. I am allergic to cats. I am the falling hope of the not so stern and somewhat bending Tories. I am a legal beagle rather than and eagle. Big up the Commonwealth of Nations.

    • Maybe. I have been speaking to an Anglophile American here. This chap – Chris by name – is a man of considerable property. He told me one only leases in China rather than buys. The state is almighty.
