I’m sitting al fresco at an Indian restaurant on a trendy street near Fudan University in Shanghai, a cold draft Carlsberg in hand. As the well-dressed, handsome Shanghai residents stroll by, young parents with their one child in tow, I think to myself maybe I understand China a bit, but I don’t.
I recall that Napoleon once warned about awakening the sleeping bear that was China. The bear has been startled awake by the economic reforms of 1979. Hang on for the ride.
