Man waiting at a highway rest stop.
I'll never forget the first time I set foot in China proper. (This was
a few years ago) I had just
taken the train from Hong Kong and had crossed the border into
Shenzhen. Upon leaving the Shenzhen train station, I was greeted
with a sea of Chinese people, hundreds of them, squatting all over the plaza in
front of the station, with a cop standing in the middle of this throng of squatters
screaming at someone about something. The contrast between Shenzhen
and Hong Kong was quite a shock to the system.
