Japan: Something About Feelings
Some of us think that the Japanese somehow mask their feelings, they lock them somewhere deep inside. That they just keeps bowing and smiling, they behave artificially. They are "programmed" to well and worked hard for your business, family, and for Japan. And that might not even have any feelings. On it there is only one answer.

Everything was dominated by ground shabby, battered gray building - school.

Morning view from hotel window in Xining reveals a breathtaking backdrop. The city is surrounded by high mountains, over which the sun shines and I'm really looking forward for today's trip, which has sometimes copied the former trade artery between Asia and Europe - the Silk Road.
