That I don't know up from down on weibo or the political topic? I'm sorry either way! I was in Beijing once about 20 years ago for a consulting job. It was a time of amazing change for China. A translator was assigned to me by the powers that be, and he was an awesome dude. Most foreigners stuck to highly westernized artificial neighborhoods with expensive hotels and restaurants and menus in English and German. I told him I hated those places and preferred to hang out in the real world. We went to a tiny little place and got tea and he taught me the correct height I had to hold my cup because I was old. He handed me a slip of paper that was the restaurant's menu, entirely in Mandarin, and asked me what I wanted, grinning because he knew I couldn't read a word of it. I studied it for a moment and then in the best copied pronunciation I could muster, said "I'll have the Kung Pao chicken". The look on his face was priceless because the restaurant happened to have Kung Pao chicken and for a moment he thought I had read it.
Our translator was a young guy, very highly educated and obviously earmarked for China's new ventures and expansion and all that. At one point he quietly asked the lead guy of the small team I was with for a possible job in the US, and the lead guy idiot mentioned that to someone on the Chinese side of things, not realizing what that could do to the young man. One day the young man just wasn't there anymore, isolated from us to insure that he would not attempt to leave China. I made those images and would not be in the slightest bit offended if the thread were deleted.
