The taste of Fushun

Resident off & on since Sep 2002.

Fushun is like eating seaweed for the first time. Strange and almost unpallitable, but with something about it that is fascinating, so one keeps trying it until it is an acquired taste one cannot do without.

The feel of Fushun

You will quickly learn the words
"waiguoren" and "laowai".
"Foreigner" and "outsider". You will hear these words every day, nomatter how long you have been here. The chinese haven't been allowed out much in the last 50 years and are still not familiar with the idea of people other than themselves.

The sound of Fushun

I have never heard so many car horns! There are no discernable roadrules and drivers let each other know they are coming by using their horns. They don't wear seatbelts either.
