Julian’s Mandarin Course: Lesson 4

It is going to be the end of the year and I have been receiving calls/messages from different people to who I own money, mostly due to building the country inn. It is not a successful investment. 

Yesterday I also received a notice from three policemen visited my house, it was about the punishment of building a camping site on my own land. Yes it is my own land and it is not a building, I just cleared out the bushes and some small trees, to make it a place for children to play around in holidays, still, the government won’t allow it and said I broke the law. Can you believe it?

The fine is ¥1248. I don’t know if this number means anything because every digit doubles the previous one. The three policemen showed their understanding to my project and behavior and decided not to punish me at first, but unfortunately their higher-rank officers saw my project and decided I should be punished anyway.

I will have to pay the fine Monday, in a local bank. 

Living in China does not make me happy, nobody is really happy in this corrupt system.
