It’s Hard To Hire Good Help These Days

My spies have returned from Asia with little to report.

  • They can confirm that The Great Wall and thousands of old things exist in China,
  • pretty women are in demand by young men for posed photos,
  • things that sparkle are readily available in stores,
  • the wealthy do own beautiful shops and homes complete with armed guards,
  • Internet cafes exist and some run that other OS, and
  • the poor exist and live on the other side of the bay, valley, or hill …

Not once did they ask their prepaid tour-guides to see an electronics/computer shop… They had plenty of time at pools, beaches, many modes of transportation, and many different geographic features… Never send a tourist to do a geek’s job, I guess.

  1. Last night we viewed over 1K images taken on the trip. Unfortunately, many were for touristy hot spots and not technologically illuminating. They did reveal how much China and the Philippines have advanced in a few decades, however. There is a lot happening. Even the airport in Tokyo was interesting. My wife took detailed photos of the use of granite in the washrooms.

    I’ll spread the word that there are old things in China.
