Sleep with the dogs… Eat with the Emperor – Cycling The Silk Road In China

It is amazing to me, that the people in this rural part of China, eat like kings but sleep and live with such basic standards…

A hotel room cost less than a good dinner…. It is common to see people eat great lavish meals in good places…..And you see NO… absolutely not a single lovely designed house or a comfortable home anywhere….

It must be a remnant of the strict Communist era, which did not allow luxury or personal comfort… And instead categorized it as the height of “bourgeois” and was forbidden….

The Communist regime could NOT forbid or control what people ate for dinner behind closed doors…. Everything else was just too visible…
