There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune

From The Economist, August 5th (thanks to EnduranceJay, who is presently attempting to corner the Chinese retail industry):

  • People in Zhejiang like toilet paper “as rough as sandpaper”; the top seller in Kunming is spicy chicken feet; and Shandong natives like to buy whole steamed pigs’ faces to slice up and dip in soy sauce and vinegar.

Life is rather more prosaic here in Turkey.

About me

  • I'm Sunset Shazz
  • Living the dream in Istanbul, Turkey
  • I grew up in the hardscrabble streets of suburban Ottawa, Ontario, committing petty crime, insulting the elderly - basically the classic misspent youth. When I was 19, I moved to West Philly, where I put myself through the Wharton School by dealing crack and hustling. After stints in Paris and London, I eventually graduated and moved to San Francisco, where I put in eight years hard labor working for The Man. But now I pop bottles with models, deciding cracked crab or lobster - who says mobsters don't prosper?
