Between 2 Worlds: Driving Across China

Having previously lived in Asia, we always felt that China had one foot in the 21st century and the other in, oh, the 14th. In a Wall St. Journal article of August 25, writer Gordon Fairclough buys a Chinese Chery car (we don’t even want to go there with the name) and drives across much of western China. It’s a fascinating read about how China is driving (sorry) toward being a global presence, and a Westernized one.
