Chinese Spit

Just a short inbetween. I know Chinese spit. It’s a medical thing according to them. Spit, once created by the “AHHRGGGGGG” scraping has only one way to go..OUT.

I also noticed that in general the amount of spitters decreased and honestly I don’t care so much if people spit as long as they do it in a kind of concealed way without bothering anyone else.

Why this short inbetween which has been written about over and over again on any blog and website related to China.

Because I just took the elevator in my building, together with a well-dressed young guy, someone who couldn’t resist the urge of spitting, just there, just then, just on the floor of the lift.

There are moments I see progress, there are many more moments I see reality.

    While I don’t mind the spitting sound, it does annoy me you can’t safely place your bag on the ground… as it may get wet.
