Hey it's not like I am slating you very much; certainly no more that I do Mr Putin and the Americans. Hell, I even take the piss out of myself-----oops that means I am quite happy to take a 'swipe' at myself----oops I mean I am good at laughing at myself. Does that make you feel better? I have been giving the Americans hell about their stupid gun laws, as are many Americans. Yes, that's a huge difference between the USA (and many other countries)---we can criticise our leaders, openly and not worry too much about 'consequences.' Now, please believe me when I say I admire a great deal about China. I am very happy that a 'green movement,' is gathering momentum in China and that you are finally making real attempts to clean up your environment. After all, you are still on the 'catch-up road,' trying to improve the life of your citizens. So---let your people read my blogs and enter into a free debate about the issues facing us all. I really do want to visit China to see first hand the increadible progress China has made since The Peoples' Party came to power.

Give me a break. Yes it has many restaurants but to really be able to claim that label, I would say that 'diversity' should be a feature. OK, to be a little more kind I will say that there is a fantastic choice of Chinese restaurants and quite a few Thai ones, but apart from a few Indian establishments, the choice is not one that deserves the above label. I live on that Road and enjoy driving towards (or away from) the city, savouring all of the fantastic smells drifting through my open window. What I would like to see is the addition of more cultural experiences; for example: Mexican, Indonesian, Spanish, and Greek----get the idea I am trying to promote? Bring in those and then some and I will say that Dominion Rd can honestly say that it is the culinary capital of New Zealand streets. I look forward to that time so that I can add more restaurant to my favourite Chinese ones. I am sure the owners of the said restaurants would agree; that with more diversity on the DOM. they will stand out more!
