Life in China Seems Kind of Crazy

7 Dec

In case you don’t believe me, take note of this video that a pair of tourists posted to YouTube. In the footage, their taxi driver drives down the highway going the wrong way. He seems blissfully content to do so.

It’s also crazy how much trash the Chinese generate. According to one report, Beijing alone produces 20,000 tons of garbage on a daily basis. The country produces more than 30 percent of all garbage around the world every single year. One of the largest problems, according to the article, is that the population pays no attention to sorting refuse. Proper education campaigns, instead of continued investment in new infrastructure, could help reduce the burden on the country.
