News in China

Madame Chiang Kai-shek Died. I visited her family’s house in Shanghai as a destination on the tour path set up by the government.

Check out this article from a Chinese site. It says, “Chinese President Hu Jintao (R) and Australian Prime Minister John Winston Howard meet press after their talks in Canberra…” Is the ‘R’ for right? Do you think people can tell without that specification?

I'm confused about the R. I first thought it stood for "Republican," but then I thought, oh wait, how can the Chinese president be a republican?

Talk to me, Goose.
