The Middle Kingdom I: East

THE MIDDLE KINGDOM I: EAST (Shanghai-Wuxi-Hangzhou)

The Middle Kingdom: Introduction

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
--Ancient Chinese proverb

As a student of history, I have the greatest reverence for old cultures. If I bowed low enough to put my head through the floor I could not begin to express my awe at Chinese culture. There is a board game called History of the World, based on a book by the Indian scholar Nehru (another culture I revere, but I haven’t been there yet)which covers all of recorded human events. In a very long game, modern Europe, with its superior technology, only comes in briefly for the last turn. Now if I was Chinese, I’d consider European culture to be a modern offshoot of the Indian (Aryan) one. As for the USA; well, it’s really too early to see how such a young offshoot of an offshoot will turn out!

Could you visit the United States in three weeks, and say you’d seen it?...
