Around Wuhan

We spend our last day in Wuhan looking at the architecture and hating the people

Wuhan

From Wuhan sitting on a plane
Must have been a little insane
You see Wuhan was hot as hell
And the people there sucked as well

They’re all rich and great so they think
But underneath their souls all stink
The sights are three in Wuhan town
Not much else can be found

The Huang He Lou and big East Lake
With Guan Yin place for heaven’s sake
Nothing else but glass and steel
Why don’t Wuhan people get real

No picture! No picture!

As I was taking a picture of Sunee (not this idiot) checking out a place to eat, we got the hand waving crap from this Wuhanese (please think as negative as you can when I use this term). I took the picture anyway because I was not concentrating on him but Sunee's search. Usually when I take people pictures in China, I get the typical Chinese hamming it up with the bunny sign or the peace sign or whatever one calls it. THIS IS China. My guess would be that about one person in 200 0r 300 in China becomes upset or requests that I do not take their picture. I respect this, smile and continue on my way. Herein is where I despise the typical Wuhanese so much. I think maybe one or two people in the entire city smiled as I was taking their picture. The rest ran away or did the hand waving forbidding me to take their picture. Who, pray tell, would want to visit such a nasty place with such nasty people. They are not Chinese but Wuhanese!

Bet this guy hates Wuhan as much as we did

How about this very European style statue. Seems I saw this in Greece when we lived there.

Western-style buildings are everywhere, yet, the Wuhanese hate westerners. GO FIGURE!

We had some Xinjiang noodles and the people were OK. Just OK. Elsewhere the Xinjiang people would have been super friendly. See what happens when one spends time around Wuhanese!

At least the chickens looked good and tasted as good as they looked. Too bad we had to interact with a Wuhanese to buy one. Yep, she was extremely rude to Sunee.

Looks like Western buildings and companies to me.

Rice bowls pre-made for a quick snack.

QuickLunch.jpg
This was our first lunch in Wuhan. The people seemed OK. Turned out he and his wife were the friendliest we met and they were just OK. This is not Sichuan!

FinalShopping.jpg
We made a final trip out to do a little shopping before going to the airport.

Coming home to Sichuan and real Chinese people. Skies are beautiful once one leaves Wuhan!
