Summary: “This is China” ....a familiar expression among expatriates in Shenzhen. These words are the only way for many to excuse unseemly sights, smells, and experiences. Rather than seeking an explanation for much of what is witnessed, people utter: “T.I.C.” (This is China). Somehow, this simple acronym excuses whatever is seen, smelled, tasted, and encountered. Frustration dissolves, and life continues with a smirk (Excuse me. I meant, “with a ‘smile’.”). The following stories are tangible, real experiences that have happened to us, our friends, and citizens of China. If seeking a book that details tourist attractions and luxury accommodations, there are others on the shelf from which to choose. If seeking the alleyways and remote streets of China, a culture truly unknown to most of the world, this book will bring more than reality to your fingertips. It will bring thought-provoking images and pose questions that inspire personal, soul-searching responses.
