The name of the central place comes from foreigners. It happen to me too.
A young girl comes to me and start a conversation. She was very young and shy. I asked her, why she comes to me, as usual I´m very curious. She told me her mother she showed to her, told her: „Talk with the foreigner, train conversation.“ She did as her Mum told her. It was not so easy for her. But the own chance to speak and train her english.
Shit, I forgot to make a selfie with her, old school, I´m, isn´t it?
Later a young man comes and asked if he can do a photo with me. Of course, so I will be in wechat, the chinese facebook.
When you here in China, you get experienced how google and facebook dominate our world. Because all google and fb account and related services are blocked. Even the map services don`t work. Here I realize how powerful these two dominate our lifes. Even they practical, or because they are so practical we became lazy.
Luckly i download an offline map of Jinan, with the GPS i didn`t go lost 🙂
My guest comes, I stop now.
