Just a quick observation about Chinese women wearing long, pointy shoes; not sure why they do it, but they do it. If you know anything about bound feet (read Wild Swans by Jung Chang) then you might say the fashion pendulum has swung the other way. Also, what’s with that creepy long fingernail (usually on the pinkie) that a lot of Chinese men have? Is it for picking their nose? If that’s the case then I understand….
By the way, I was in Guangzhou for four days this last weekend. Had a great time. Checked out my new apartment and had a talk with my new employer. Am waiting to hear what they have to say.
