I started this as a travel blog, but in reality, it’s a soapbox for my hubris. My goal isn’t so much to report on my quotidian life in Beijing, as it is to read between the lines of my experiences and draw some kind of cultural conclusion.
I consider myself a wallflower in Beijing life, but in reality the conclusions I draw are more likely that of “an arrogant outsider who is less interested in truth and subtlety than in promoting himself and his one-note ideas.” Reader beware.
My influence, and my sesquipedalian style to some degree, for this blog comes from The Epicurean Deal Maker, a financial blog worth a read.
