News from Beijing – A repost

In Travel on May 9, 2012 at 6:00 am

Since I’m traveling, I thought I’d drop this little note into the queue. It’s a couple of newspaper articles I found curious, quoted verbatum. I was in China in 2005.


Morning in Beijing. Coffee and the China Daily (English), with the following posts:

As if knowing it is best to find a police officer in times of trouble, an exhausted wild goose landed on a patrol car in insane, leaning Province. Hearing a strange sound on the roof of their vehicle two officers stopped and got out to investigate. To their astonishment they discovered a large wild goose flapping atop their car. A vet later found it was suffering from cramp in the leg caused by fatigue after a long-haul migratory flight from the south.

And this one:

A laid-off couple in Chang have launched their own healthy environment drive. Intent on arousing public awareness of serious health hazards of spitting, the couple have invented a special paper package for wrapping phlegm, which they are offering free to citizens.

I welcome your comments. Thanks for reading.
