A VLOG from my trip to Shenzhen, Guangdong, China – Shenzhen Video

I made a trip to China in April 2012. This is my first experience with going to “Greater China.” I had previously visited Hong Kong years ago, before control of it reverted to China. I found the people of Shenzhen welcoming and I enjoyed my visit. The purpose of my visit was for work. The result of my trip is that I now have a few more friends 🙂

  3. Western names are used especially in international companies. These names are not formal or official.

  6. Thanks Zoo. It was not easy being away for a week, but it’s a good job in a bad economy. I missed my Peggy and I’m glad to be home. Thanks for commenting, Larry

  8. no factories. Mao and his cohorts are gone. China is headed for prosperous times. I’ve heard Russia is also heating up economy wise… we could use a little of that over here, don’t you know. No raw seafood for me thanks 🙂

  11. Very good, Larry. The girl with the glasses (Wendy?) was cute 🙂 The last meal with the “lazy susan” type table reminded me of a similar experience that I had years ago. I didn’t see any raw seafood dishes, though. Maybe I missed them. It seems that the days of Mao Tse Tung are long gone. Did you see any factories?
    Cheers,
    Bob

  15. I don’t know exactly how to describe about the names. They pick them and start using them when they begin to learn English. They are their names, but not their names given at birth.

  18. This is a stone’s throw from Hong Kong, I believe. I would imagine this part of the country shares some of the same affluence. I was wondering why all of your hosts had recognizable names (i.e., English names like Wendy, Henry, etc.) Was that for your convenience, do you think, or have Western names really taken root there, so close to Hong Kong? Loved this, Larry. Hope your new job is a satisfying one.

  19. thanks for watching. It’s become a mix of communism/capitalism. Beginning with Deng XiaoPing when Chairman Mao died China has opened up and advanced to rival the other capitalist countries.

  22. Hey Larry, thanks for this virtual visit to Shenzhen it was very interesting. I am amazed to see how modern everything looks at those parts. And the people were also very nice. I have mixed feelings seeing all this and then recalling the fact that they are still a communist country.
