Asia’s Rise – Go East, Young Man

By me | December 23, 2010

As usual, I had found myself incredibly lost in China.  It’s quite easy to do so, something I proved to myself on numerous occasions.

Of the nearly 100 countries I have visited in my travels, the top three most difficult countries to get around as an English speaking foreigner were China, Russia and, this one may surprise you, Mexico.
