A gallery of outdoor dentists and hairdressers in India and China.
This is one of those things you see pretty much every single day on any street in India (and China), but those of you in the Western Hemisphere would find this greatly amusing and curious.A gallery of a Japanese penis worshipping festival, or "WTF JAPAN?!"
And finally, a gallery showcasing the rich, middle class and poor in China.
I have to say that this would tranfer fairly well for India too.
Although to be honest, what I'd really like to know is what these particular people do for a living.
The cliche is that India and China are full of poor people who live like many of the people in these pictures. But on the other hand, there are people who are educated, English speaking, computer literate, and live relatively comfortable lives - earn a salary comparable to American minimum wage, except their cost of living is a fraction of American cost of living (like me, for example).
So I'd love to see a mention of these peoples' incomes and education and jobs to set the record straight. In my neighborhood in South Delhi for example there's an office with a Bentley Continental GT regularly parked outside. My neighbourhood alone is home to three Ferrari owners, one Lamborghini Gallardo owner, and at least three Porsche owners - and it's not even what we'd call the "really rich" part of town.
India and China aren't full of poor people. It's just the divide between the rich and the poor is so much greater than it is in any developed country that the average alien might not be able to even comprehend it.
