Dispatch #15 – Shanghai, People’s Republic of China

State Control

This is more of a rant than a travel dispatch. I will most likely post my China dispatches upon my return to the states for fear of “hurting the feelings of the Chinese people” as government officials like to refer to expressions of free speech.

Travelers beware censorship and surveillance is very REAL in China just like the old cold war era movies. Make no mistake about it the state CONTROLS people’s very existence here including foreigners. Don’t be fooled by the Disneyfication of Shanghai and Beijing—repression reigns.

I can’t wait to get the hell out of here! The contradictions, corruption and repression are just too much for this Cali sistah.
