Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, September 19 – The Chinese government continues to try to improve the image of the general Chinese population. There are civility and patriotic signs in most public places where we go: along the streets, at bus stops and on buses, at metro stations and on the metros, in parks, and also sometimes in businesses also. Most just have words: prosperous and strong, democracy, civil, harmonious, freedom, equality, fair, patriotic, dedication to your work, honesty, friendliness, etc. There is so much I could write about this, but I’m just going to keep it simple!
The pictures and approximate translations (if different from the basic words above) are : Top – Large sign at the park, Left middle – Placard on table at restaurant – (Don’t leave food, you are encouraged to not order excessive amounts and to take leftovers with you), Right Middle – Large sign in parking area, (Sunflower towards the sun, Communist Party toward the People) Left bottom – Large sign on building, Center bottom – Monitor on bus – (Country is Family), Right bottom – Banners along the Songshan Lake walkway. www.myownchinesebrocade.com
