What are the adversaries goals in election interference?

"The US Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Friday released a statement on election interference and CSC Director William Evans says that Russia China and Iran are all interested in various forms of interference. Briefly China dislikes president trump whom it regards as unpredictable and wants him so that he can't in Beijing's view, continue to damage Chinese interests Iran also dislikes the incumbent and sees the prospect of his reelection as likely to mean increased pressure on the Islamic republic and pressure that would be designed to bring about regime change in Tehran. Iran also has a more general interest in undermining US institutions. The statement says. Russia has been busy denigrating former vice president biden who Moscow sees is dangerously connected with Ukraine and with the Obama Administration's disapproval of Russia's armed slow motion re engorgement of that country he's also seen as part of an anti Russian establishment. So China and Doron Trend Blue Russia read the returns from Pyongyang aren't in yet. CYBERSECURITY and Infrastructure Security Agency director Christopher crabs commented on the OD statement praising the intelligence community for its contributions to transparency declassifying and sharing intelligence in ways. CISA thinks likely to contribute to election security director crabs said quote we have long said Russia, and other nation states are targeting our elections. We knew this to be true in two, thousand, sixteen. We know it's true today and we know they will continue to attempt to interfere while motives may vary. One thing is consistent.

"And certainly China has bean angered by this, say much ERM complained to the U. S. For sending the HHS secretary. They take this very seriously when countries send high ranking officials to Taiwan because China believes that Beijing should be in charge. Taiwan has different ideas and is very pleased to see on American official of Alex Cesar standing coming into visit Now, Ada said that this is all about the Corona virus. He wanted to praise Taiwan's handling of the outbreak. So far, it has been seen as one of the top places in the world when it comes to containing The virus, and he also praised Taiwan is transparent, collaborative and cooperative engagement during the pandemic, Anything. It's no coincidence that he used those words because that's about the exact opposite of what the U. S. Accuses China's government of Beijing in Beijing of doing throughout the course of this pandemic, so It is a poke at China to send a Cabinet secretary from the U. S to Taiwan without China's permission. But indeed, that is what the United States has done, and it is stressing that While it doesn't have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan and hasn't done for several decades at the U.

"But first today's one big thing. The end of Hong Kong's relatively free political system is no longer looming. It's here. No more free press arrest by secret police. The end of Hong Kong's political freedom is here. Bethany Alan Abrahamian is our China reporter and she's been following these developments since the Chinese Communist Party forced a national. Security Law on Hong. Kong. This new law made it illegal for anyone anywhere in the world to promote democratic reform in Hong Kong. So in the past twenty, four hours, we have seen a very dramatic raid on the offices of Apple Daily which is a pretty pro democracy newspaper in Hong. Kong also, the owner of that newspaper Jimmy Lai who has long been an outspoken critic of Beijing, was arrested and marched out of those offices. We've also seen the arrest of Agnes Chow who was a major student Leader of recent protests in Hong Kong in addition Hong Kong, chief? Executive Carrie Lam announced recently that she would be postponing the scheduled elections for one year. Now, she said it was because of the coronavirus pandemic but no one really believes that what has the American government and other outside governments done as a response to what's happened in the past twenty four hours the US last week just levied sanctions on top Hong Kong officials including Carrie Lam I. think that is the most significant sanction on any individual that the government has ever passed with regards to China however is mostly Symbolic Carrie. Lam, herself kind of laughed off. The none of her assets are going to be affected by that I. Wonder if we can just remind everyone the law's written to apply to everyone everywhere. Do you think action outside of China could be next so article thirty, eight of the national security lies really stunning sweeping extraterritoriality and the Hong Kong authorities have ready demonstrated that they're going to use that underlies. Thirty. First, the Hong Kong Police announced indictments and arrest warrants for six individuals based outside of China including a US citizen based in the United States who has been a US citizen for twenty five years. This is a new phenomenon in the world to have an authoritarian government enshrine in law its desire to crush dissent around the world. So I think sometimes when people. Think about democracy being suppressed in China at least for me. My mind immediately goes to TNN Square and the idea of tanks and guns doing that. But this doesn't look like that the Chinese Communist Party's version of authoritarianism challenges American and Western perceptions of what authoritarianism looks like. We think Cold War era tanks and barbed wire, but China has learned how to suppress. People while still having the appearance of prosperity and modernity, and we don't understand that we don't know how to expect that or how to stop that the Chinese government has learned how to effectively crush a vibrant political movement without the use of military force but it accomplishes the same purpose and that's what we're not really capable yet of responding to in an effective way.

TikTok To Sue Trump Administration Over Ban, As Soon As Tuesday

"The initial headlines was that trump was going to ban TIKTOK well. Then there was another headline saying trump was going to back down banning TIKTOK. Because there's a chance that Microsoft was going to purchase the talk property in the United States have their own US division and Microsoft buying that. But now trump has issued an executive order regarding Tick Tock and apparently rather than banning the APP itself, they took a different tack and are banning the service from the United States meaning that you cannot interact with Tick Tock Company. That's the supposedly how. Little bit more here from from NPR tug confused they talking about the video sharing APP being hugely popular and this the APP is actually planning on filing a lawsuit against the trump administration. As soon as Tuesday, according to a person directly involved with the forthcoming suits be filed in the District Court in. South? Cal California where Tiktok American operations are based NPR's learned. The suit will argue that trump's far-reaching action is unconstitutional because it failed to give the company a chance to respond. It also alleges the administration's national security justification for the order is baseless. Saying it's on pure speculation and conjecture. The has no findings. Of fact, just reiterates rhetoric about China that has been kicking around the White House declined to comment on the expected litigation but defended the executive order from President saying quote, the administration is committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats to critical infrastructure, public health and safety and our economic and national security they claim. So what they're doing is under the executive order quote any transaction unquote between a US citizen and Tick Tock. Beijing. Based parent company. Bite dance will be outlawed in forty five days for national security reasons seems like it could be interpreted very broadly. Yes. I suspect the interpretation would be that a transaction would mean you opening the APP you sending any sort of data to it you doing anything with asking support for some help. While you're installing it down, that seems like what is a transaction under the definition of this particular order right? I think it's any interaction with sometimes the transaction means a monetary thing right but you don't pay for Tiktok at least I. Don't think you right. I mean, maybe they have some sort of a paid to your. But I guarantee you the one, hundred million people or whatever that are using it aren't aren't paying for. One hundred million I, don't I honestly don't know it may be more than one hundred, million I. Don't know if that's in the United States it's probably worldwide or whatever but it's a very, very popular APP. The APP has also they say, they talk a little bit about you know the short videos are usually like fifteen seconds very, very short. The APP has also been used to antagonize the president including thousands and. Thousands of teens reserved tickets to the president's rally in Tulsa Oklahoma with no intention of going inflating the trump campaign's expectations for the event and causing embarrassment over the disappointing turns man bed. No Orangemen said. If the presidential ban goes into effect the APP may no longer be able to send software updates rendering tiktok unmanageable on smartphones and eventually nonfunctional. So they're considering a transaction I think to me in any data moving from one to another.

Athens. But for sort of wall-to-wall coverage, it was Beijing for me and I just remember the venues being really cool. The bird's nest, the aquatic center looking futuristic and yeah I just lapped it up. Do. You remember the dramas at the opening ceremony. That's kind of a rule about a conic moments matt. I think that is the conic moment isn't it from Beijing? Yeah well, I would say you same bolt is the I call. Of this the sport yes I'm going. Non You talked about venues and several. Yes opening ceremony iconic moment. Yeah. They also remember all the re. There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time. Yeah. We can control the weather. So the Truman show style but forty six years of drizzle. Could do anything about it. Jim that suddenly everybody. Acted like they understood the expression seeding the clouds the I'm doing it now.

"We talked about the Chinese economy and how it is recovering and suffering. It's the law fair. Podcast April Twenty Eighth Sophia Yan reports from quarantine in Beijing Sophia. Start by telling us where you are and why well. I've just come back to Beijing. I'm under quarantine in my house and it's because I recently traveled to and from John which is the ground zero at the corner virus outbreak You'll remember that's where the first cases emerged late last year. And because China it's still grappling with this pandemic a lot of measures now including you've quarantine restrictions are still here in place to make sure that a second wave is prevented at least the Bacon Tracking that are coming back so a lot of people in the United States. Who were under lockdown here? You say I'm under quarantine in Beijing. And they think oh I'm under quarantine in Washington or I'm under quarantine in in New York but when you say quarantine you mean something a little bit different from what we mean here when we say it. So what does quarantine in Beijing involve run? Pretty fortunate I think to build a quarantine in my house. A lot of people who live with others if you've got family or housemates than you have to quarantine at a government facility. They're usually hotels so for me. I I literally cannot leave my house. I can't go out to take out the trash. I can't go to get packages. There brought to my door by neighborhood. Committee Enabled Party Committee that oversees my particular residential complex. And there's even a alarm at my door so every time I opened my door it pains this woman. Who's in charge of my building? Just my building in my compound so she knows exactly when the door opens and closes and I know because on my first night I opened the door to put out my trash so once the day they come by to take my rubbish and take my recycling so I was putting out the night before and the moment I did it. I close the door and a few seconds later. This woman who's in charge of my building messages me. She's a did you open your door. I said well yes I had to put out the trash so since then every time I do need to open my door for the trash or to get grocery delivery or things like that I always messenger to be like. I'm already my door because they take it very seriously. It makes sense. There's this concern that a second wave of infections which have started to come might mean the disease spreads even more widely Time around so be very very careful. You are in your apartment and you said. Most people are quarantined at government facilities. What does the government facility quarantine involved like if you were if you had family members living with you and you were required to go to one of these hotels? How is that different from home? Quarantine other than that. You don't have your piano. Rolly restrictions are largely the same. They also can't leave and so most of US facilities are hotels that have been re purposed for that use and so these people who are in that situation might colleagues and friends have gone through that kind of quarantine They also can't leave their hotel rooms and so for all of us no matter where you are at home or in one of these hotels use this according to you facility. A few times a day you have to report your temperature. And there's a certain people assigned to your case so doctors in a kind of like a representative. Who's taking care of you and just making sure that you do do that. Full fourteen days so that that person for me is this woman. I mentioned before who knows every time I opened my door. And so I'm nearing the end of this fourteen day period and I have to undergo a second nucleic acid test to determine whether or not I have the virus the first one I did back in Wuhan and that was a requirement for me to leave the city so I was there Right before the lockdowns officially lifted and through that period after the lockdown sorta to eased in early April and even after the lockdowns came out on there was a restriction of how many people could come back to Beijing so it was a thousand people a day and there was a lottery system to get a train ticket to return and so to even get in the lottery system. You had to show a clean bill of health and go through a virus test so I had to go to a hospital to show that I wasn't positive With those results than I could apply for this train ticket lottery with that I could finally come back to Beijing and from there. I was just escorted to different points to take personal details register my temperature and all of this. I was escorted all the way to my door. So it's this whole process that everyone had to go through in this quarantine in Beijing. Fourteen days it started to extend it. There's an extra seven day in some parts of China it's fourteen days in a government facility plus another fourteen at home depending where you are because again they're trying to battle the second wave and this applies for both domestic travel and international travel. So if you if you fly to China now you are at the airport removed and put in a quarantine hotel right. Yeah right now. The borders closed to foreigners who have eased as To China can't come in so if you were coming back you would have to.

"We caught up within when he had just returned in the UK. Here's what he says. Yes I've arrived in the UK. It was shockingly easy. I thought a guards regiment might forcibly take our temperature or at least ask her contact information in case someone had to track down those who had contact with an infected person but nothing of the sort happened. I arrived when through an automated passport control and was in a car in a few minutes. Now that's a little bit upsetting if that's you travel from China to the UK right now that may have consequences for the rest of the world. Ian However is a good citizen and a good sport. He's now in the empty wing of his relatives country home south of London. He's going for long walks through the English countryside while avoiding pubs swimming pools and any other place where people congregate. It's nice work if you can get it. We'll be back with this week's playback in just a moment if you're listening to our show you're probably someone who cares about the biggest issues shaping society today. There's another podcast. We think you should check out intelligence squared. Us America's leading debate series. They bring together. Influential thinkers like Deepak. Chopra Arianna Huffington David Miller band and even yours truly. I admit debating Alan Dershowitz to evidence based debates on contentious topics like free-trade healthcare reform and spirituality. It's not about soundbites pundits. It's more a thoughtful. Spirited competition of ideas find intelligence squared. Us wherever you get your podcasts. And now our playback. That's the sound of clapping in Doha. The capital of Uttar where representative of the US government and a representative of the Afghan Taliban signed a peace agreement. This weekend the clapping notwithstanding this is an agreement that's already facing very significant challenges and those challenges are only going to get greater to understand why you have to begin with a painful fact about the nearly twenty year. Us engagement in Afghanistan by any ordinary military standard. It ultimately looks like a defeat. It didn't start that way. When the United States I came into Afghanistan it very effectively and very rapidly made the Taliban leave the country and that after all was the initial reason for the invasion. The idea was number one. Get rid of the Taliban number to catch as many members of al-Qaeda as it's possible to get our hands on the trouble was that happened almost too quickly and then gradually imperceptibly over time the US mission in Afghanistan challenged. Ultimately the argument was that the United States should make an effort of some kind to produce some kind of stable functioning democratic government in Afghanistan and yet the government that presently exists in the country is very very loosely democratic and only stable in the loosest sense of the word in fact most observers believe that should the United States actually withdraw its troops from Afghanistan as it has promised eventually to do in this agreement that government would have a great deal of trouble withstanding a serious attack from the Taliban now in order to get there the so-called agreement between the United States and the Taliban an agreement which notably does not yet include Afghanistan as party says that the Taliban are supposed to negotiate a peace with the Afghan government and put down their arms from there were supposed to move on to an eventual US withdrawal of all of its troops but from the standpoint of the Taliban. They don't have any really strong reason to put down their arms if it would require them to form a compromise with the current government that would not be to the Taliban's liking the reason for that is that once the United States has said publicly that intends to leave Afghanistan. It's leverage to force the Taliban to do anything other than whatever it wants is reduced very drastically after all all along in this war. The only thing the United States has ever been able to do when it wanted the Toubon to listen to. It was to continue to fight the Taliban. That's why within a few days of the initial agreement. The Taliban demanded that if the Afghan government wanted to negotiate with it the Afghan would have to free five thousand Taliban prisoners for their part. The Afghan government is terrified about the possibility of an actual use withdrawal so it's in the Afghan government's interest to delay that as long as possible. Consequently the Afghan simply said we're not handing over the five thousand Taliban prisoners which means that at least as of right now the Taliban on the one hand and the government of Afghanistan on the other hand are not even on speaking terms technically without an agreement between them the United States cannot withdraw and therefore the agreement between the United States and the Taliban might turn out to be more symbolic than actual nevertheless disagreement probably will have a major long term consequence and that long term consequence is primarily in the US domestic context. Donald Trump in the run up to a reelection seems fully prepared to do what none of his predecessors were willing to do and essentially admit defeat in Afghanistan by agreeing to do a deal with the Taliban. Barack Obama was not prepared to do that even in a second term when he himself was not running for re election. George W Bush wasn't prepared to do it in either of his terms as president. Both of them ended up owning the American involvement in Afghanistan and the history books will so record. Donald Trump on the other hand. Despite to a great extent continuing the Obama Administration's policies in the first part of his term has actually now signaled a willingness to bite the bullet to say that the United States actually must get out and trump will now carry the historical legacy of the willingness to withdraw. Even if the United States doesn't withdraw in either of his potentially two terms in office. I hate to say it. But that's actually a major gift that Donald Trump is making to the United States and also to a future president any future president. And it's no secret that my view is that it would be better for to be anyone other than Donald Trump in two thousand twenty will be able to continue the trump policy of saying that the United States has signed to deal and is prepared to leave the country that will be a tremendous advantage because it will mean that president will not have to say we agreed to lose the war on my watch there is however a final. Coda as they're almost always know. Us President is going to want to preside over scenes in Kabul that are reminiscent of the famous scenes of the US withdrawal from Saigon in nineteen. Seventy five no one will want to be present in the United States with helicopters flying out with the last. Us personnel and tens or hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of Afghans begging to be on those helicopters and yet that scenario is entirely possible if the US government ultimately withdraws troops and if the Taliban move on the city in a serious military way the agreement does give. Donald trump the flexibility. To say that under those circumstances but the Taliban army heading to Kabul that the United Sates would not withdraw but it seems entirely possible the Donald Trump would be willing to do so and to bear even that price a remarkable consequence of trump's confidence that his base will support him almost no matter what his apparent belief that he cannot be made to look weak on foreign policy no matter what. His actual policies are and trump's conviction probably accurate than most Americans even if they would feel bad in the short term at such a painful public portrayal of the Afghan people are ultimately tired of this war. The upshot of all of this is that the United States will at some point find itself with its troops out of Afghanistan and the consequences for the Afghans are likely to be disastrous. The Taliban in this peace deal did not say that. They had embraced democracy. Because they haven't they did not say that they now support the education of girls and young women because they don't they did not commit themselves in this agreement to any future course of action other than agreeing to talk to the Afghan government. Something which is already not happening. Ultimately historians will look back at the legacy of the American presence in Afghanistan and wonder just how the United States could have gotten itself wrapped up in a nearly twenty year war. Why they will ask? Didn't the United States defeat the Taliban catch Osama Bin and then turn back to the Taliban and say you know what if you want to go back to Afghanistan? There's nothing we can do about it and we're not going to try and stop you. Real politique will not answer the historians question to make sense of how the United States experienced the ultimate mission creep in Afghanistan. We'll have to look back to the context of post September eleventh to the feeling in the Bush administration that the goal of the United States should not simply be to try to take steps against those who perpetrated the nine eleven attacks but to bring about generational transformations in the countries of the Muslim world. So that such attacks would never happen again. Those transformations turned out to be well beyond the power of the United States and probably beyond the power of any one country. In retrospect it all seems so painfully obvious at the time a derangement syndrome far greater than that of trump derangement grip us. All myself included. We wanted more because we the United States thought that the trauma we had suffered was unmatched unmatched trauma was supposed to lead to unmatched realization of new plans for a democratic Muslim world. In the end the only people who can make democracy is majority Muslim countries are the people who live in those countries and the American effort to create democracies by the sword is definitively a historical failure.

"And do you well as a correspondent in Beijing yes I did. I we'd sort of been obsessed with the National Day preparations and so it's this yearly event where China celebrates its birthday where there's often a lot of festivities going on but this year was the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and so it was an extra special year it was like the biggest event of the year or even the decade for the Communist Party and they were planning this huge military parade that would crowns Xi Jinping as the indomitable dominant leader of China and so it seemed like it was going to be a particularly sensitive but why is he at your door asking if you know L. About this celebration well he wanted me to leave. He basically said you have no choice. You need to leave armed. Police are going to be stationed inside your home for four days well. Why would the police to take over your apartment for this parade will? I've been asking myself that a lot lately and I don't think there's a clear answer but I think it has to do with this obsession with security that's spread throughout China's recent years and this fear that something could go wrong. This is meticulously rehearsed extravaganza. This is something that they've planned every detail. They've been rehearsing for months and everyone here knows that they're gonNA be on TV and I think there's probably a lot of fear on that stage. If anything goes wrong and so I think they were just being extra. Extra careful wanted to minimize any risk and kicked me out. So where do you go so I stayed in my apartment for a few more are weeks every weekend though the party was having these mass rehearsals for the parade and so they forced me to stay in my room under curfew while they held these these rehearsals and I was told to close my curtains promptly at eight. PM and the officer kept checking on me to see what my plans were. I didn't really know also I kind of just put him out for a while and then eventually had to make a decision so I decided to go to Taipei or family and watch the parade from there so it starts about ten. Am and you see thousands of soldiers come out holding Chinese flag many holding huge rifles the weapons are rolling out one by one we see supersonic drones we see unmanned underwater vehicles.

I didn't he mentioned VPN if you come to China, and if you've got your local scene cod from home, and you've got a good running plan. That's fine. You'll be able to access oil sides jewel.

No good memory could memory, and then one the other place that you mentioned at the beginning that you have to need till on was seven ninety eight art district. Yes. This is a bit out kind of between the main city and. The airport. It's an old industrial cock that has been rapist. With galleries and studios is a bunch of cafes and Stolz popped up there as quite nice area to walk around. If you're into that stuff. It might not be everyone's Cup of tea. But yes was shaking out. They have touring shows from international artists as well. Excellent. And you mentioned airport. Beijing is opening a new airport the world's largest next year. Yeah. Into the south of the city. Okay. So the current one is northeast of the city am I remembering that correctly. That's correct. So yeah. The other one Erico dossier will be open apparently from next year twenty nineteen. So that's gonna be a big deal, which is good. Because Beijing port is very busy. You can have delays coming in and out. Yeah. So looking forward to that. Okay. It might also then lead to more traffic, which could lead to fair drop. So that'd be something. I would watch for if you're interested in going to Beijing is there might there may not be. But there might be some good deals next year. Excellent. Well, we need to probably start wrapping this up. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Beijing where he is standing.

You're going past fields and and their cornfields. They're not ricefields. You've got corn and wheat and things like that in this part of China. It's not what I think of as Chinese food. So clearly, my thought process is just too limited. Well, that's a good point. And that reminds me to mention that I think the US is the same as Australia in out big Chinese population wave south. Yeah. I'm going down today. Both the Cantonese cuisine, which is can be sweet, it's not spicy, generally. And that's very different to most of the rest of China which uses spice, and so in the south you've got rice field solo rice based dishes in the north. You've got wait. So you get more noodles and things like that breads. So that's a distinction in general north-and-south differently. Check out things like six. John you've probably heard I think Sichuan cuisines become over. That's my favorite cuisine. So yeah, that's a well known one outside of Chinatown. Also who then is become popular recently. I really like who food unanimous mostly stink to podcast on Unani the other day. That's you can also fund law. Those restaurants in Beijing Shanxi noodles.

As far you see? You see? Sure if he's trying to trying to picture that Eighty-eight line through the middle turned up. Okay. All right. So you see neon red neon signs in that character. And you see that the place that means to our if I got what you're saying. I put a line down the middle. And then I have two horizontal rectangles one above the other like the symbol for China, except with another bucks. That's right. Okay. That's right. Exactly. Right.

"What foreigners liked to have as far? Okay. That was big in the ninety s and the still a Streep that remains there. You can see it just don't me to bay loop. So that was like the seed of this area. And then from that enormous big through mole complexes in department stores and hotels sprung up around it and specically now the main place to go and eat and go out in Beijing. It's worth going to I really think in terms of food. You might think. Okay. I should go to the old part of the city and eight local food. But to be honest, you get a little bit of variety in a place like Sunday. Tune because prices like tycoon Li which is a big shopping area Anneli patio, top win center, a few of the areas around the they full of restaurants basements of departments of malls. And things like that. And around you can get a big variety. They from all over China. In a very small spice fessed up does exist. Elsewhere in Beijing for shoal, but it's kind of spread out it'd be a restaurant here in a restaurant there, and you have to go on a big trick hitter. Mold. So Tiffany, keep that in mind because that's not something people think about because I think okay. The anytime in areas just old west and food and BAAs, but no it's good really great Chinese food as well. And are there recommendations for what or where we should eat while we're in Beijing differently? So the number one thing obvious thing is Beijing duck. There are a couple of big prime is formally known as Peking, duck, just like Jesus for my noticed Peking. Okay. Yeah. That's exactly right. The main chains that famous and and still good quality twin Judah with a Q Q U A N G U D E and Dong towards the a deal in g they've got locations throughout Beijing. And if you have. A map apt to jump on there and you'll you'll find a bunch of them atop from picking duck Beijing duck. The other local thing would be a hot caught similar to Sichuan hotpot if you've had that before but not spicy. And it seemed like a old brass conical type that was built to have Kohl's hating the soup, which then dunk in your roommate and vegetables, and then take it out and ate it with a dipping sauce. That's Beijing thing you to see that a whole lot. You'll see it in Chen men or replace school who goes walking straight, which is a good place for Beijing snacks in Beijing food, and we'll put links to all these places in the show notes for those of you who are trying to figure out who what Daniel is talking about. Another little really Beijing snack is cow stomach just boiled steamed on the show, which yum. We the sesame seeds soles. So you'll see that in those layers. You weren't really seeing outside of the tourist areas so much you'll also spot keep an eye out for Kandy whole phone fruits to toffee apples, but whole phone. You also see to this more of a street route at this point. I'm looking for this in a vendor. Yeah, you'll see them display skew is on the street or in little shops. He should be on a spot them as you will like pot set yogurt so walking around. Place like Chen men who goes Belen, Trump tau non-mogul Shung ho high..

"I don't even know where we went because we were with a friend who lives in Beijing. And he took us out to an area that is mostly restaurants around a lake with a lot of people singing American folksongs of the things like that. I don't know where we were. So that that would have been ho high and Chen. Hi, okay. Which is not not far from the German Bill. Tell got it. Okay. We were further. And then I thought so you mentioned the old part of the city is surrounded by the subway line, number two. And I think you sent me a map that says that whole areas about three and a little bit mile square. That's right. Three point three no south in about full east-west. So when I signed the old city, it's not like if you just get off one of those subway lines, and you will you'll be in beautiful Al`thood tones a lot of it has been developed, and you could in a place that looks exactly like outside of that area. If you're looking for those all the positive we'll be within that area. So something that's a bit about. About the layout. I feel like Shanghai. You get a bit of sense of way. You also you can be in the French concession, you feel like, okay? This is a neighborhood could live a life within these blocks. It's a lot like New York Manhattan, you can be in these enormous metropolis. But if you go to Greenwich Village, you'll so high will alphabet city or something like kayak and feel the sense of place mary-anne, and I can people leave they lives within a few blocks in Beijing. It can be a bit disorientating because you've got that old part of the CD which is still quite lodge. But it spread out long that north south axis, and you can kind of be confused way. You are even if the hitting all the science can disorientate people always differently disarmed tided for a long time coming in. So that's why I really recommend just trying to walk the length of that all the part of the city, for example from Lama temple through to the Trump and Bill Talla down past of highway. You are. Around the little like down to Jingsheng pock round, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Shimin. That's solid walk. You know, think it's six seven miles or something like that. But you really see those areas in the context of each other. And I think that's really worthwhile. No that sounds good. So I'm going to jump out of the CD for moment to the great wool. Beijing Fendt the grind bowl, as we know goes, many, thousands of miles but Beijing a fantastic place to see because quite close to the city the area closest is around an hour and a half strive depending on the traffic that would be Mutianyu. Which is beautifully restored has if you not into hiking up a hill and Scott chafe like scaly thing to Bogan down. So it's quite accessible. I took to the bog down. My wife was leery. And so she did not because she was a free in China that they might have less safety concerns. Although I thought it was very well monitored for speed and things. And she was tired for days afterward from doing the walk up in the walk down. The so do the toboggan it's touristy, but it's fun. And it's it's a noble thing. You don't expect to say that on the grateful just looking up online. You know, what people were saying about to go on the great wall and bottling is the very famous site way that's closer than Mouton. You isn't. It's actually further why it's both west, okay. And president Nixon visited their President Reagan. So what he's famous I think it was probably one of the most years to be promptly restored. And it's quite beautiful. I've never been there. I've only been to mute in you that people talk about on mutineers, so less crowded list. Touristy? I don't think that Severi good way. If you go with that impression you'll be disappointed because there's a lot of people. Right. So relative, right? Well, the other thing I would want people to know is we talk about the great wall. And that. Particular spot. There's a lot of hills in some places the great staircase of China. And so just know this is going to be something that is going to put some some stress on your knees and not something that you're gonna get a along distance..

"You've got the whole of the people the national museum really worth going to very great collection. Especially I think it's the basement on the bottom floor has chronologically ordered paces back through China's history and really well done the other pieces exhibitions overly like like the book. Sculptures in from different periods. Especially the song dynasty has really distinctive style. Beautiful and ceramic pint ceramics finest and look these paces over thousand years old two thousand years old and the simplicity, but the beauty of them. I just find coaches, I really love that that stuff. So definitely check out national museum. If you only do one busy him, that's the one for sure. Before we leave them at square now. When I was there there were great big huge video screens in the middle of the square showing scenes of China. I have no idea if that is something that happens normally, or if that was just there when I was there one time of the day was that I was there right around Golden Week. I'll kinda yet that would be the reason. So around the big my holiday, so the Chinese New Year, which depending on the lunar calendar can be from late January to need Fabian. They'll have different things displayed sculptures of things big screens. Like you mentioned toss in October. We had the national whole day in the mid autumn festival week. And we had like a big enormous tape structure built out of flowers. Which was cool and a big portrait of Sonia sin. Okay. The foam of prison of Republic of China. So yeah, different things will pop up there depending on the holidays in it's a place where all of China kind of has to visit sometime in your life. And you feel that when spend most of my time in Beijing not in that area. And when I go to these kind of areas, I feel like I'm meeting the rest of China, you know, the people a different 'cause they not Beijing is not living and working Beijing interest, and you really feel like you sampling meeting people from China. So it's kind of like a pilgrimage in some way. So yeah, you'll get that sense. Relative to that thinking of the big holidays that you just mentioned is that a good time to go to Beijing because everybody leaves the city or is that not a good time because everybody else were in the country uses that as a chance to come visit patient. That's. That's right. So you had people do leave. Everyone goes back to the hometown exactly riot. This big flow the other way and all those big science will be packed. Okay. I know it's a difficult time to get trained tickets and those sort of things because everybody's in motion. That's right. So yeah, you you could still make it work. If you plan ahead, but yeah, it's probably been to come outside those times avoid super crowds in of make travel around China easier. Excellent. Will you were heading south from Tiananmen Square when I stopped you. Yup. So we're still in the same area and old everywhere. We've talked about is as Lee walkable. So. So although it's it's very broad area. And it's all flat. It's all quite open. Ilise will crannies area. So immediately to the south of ten squares. Applies code chandon on this too. Big gates that Jen young guy will Shinmun sorry. Some men when he done that means gate so chin gate, Kenema, Geno. T N Kate the chin men. Represented the end will the boundary southern boundary of the old in a city Beijing as you say now all the old stuff is within. What was the old in a city and the inner city was boarded by city wool? The city bowl is like you can still see then Jing heard what cost a mentioning last year. And she end has still go the wool wilder Beijing. Hide one exactly the same. It's Neely old gone. There is a little bit of remnant lift new Beijing train station. Need can still say in woken. I did none of that. That's cool to see this big towel still attached. And it's court near the observatory which has a little museum there about the different European. Astronomers that came and quoted by the ching dynasty and whatnot. That's what seeing if you especially if you don't get out to the bowl. That's an lost of remnant to see this.

"So do check out the website and chick with those things are being shown because you could easily walk through the whole thing not realize that there it's really not so crowded off to the side of the of the mine area. So try to do that as you'd move forward through the different buildings. You'll end up. Up in a small garden, which is. Some old by juniper trees in Rockville nations. That's quite pretty and you'll end up housing out of the whole complex out through the northern gate, which will be the end of the two or through the complex when the only thing I would add to that is as you're coming in through the way that you did you're coming into the ceremonial and the public public for the people who were visiting officials and things like that part of the Forbidden City, so everything is built to impress. You can tell as you're going in there that you were supposed to think I am so little absolutely as you get towards that guard near in the private part. And I was surprised how small some of the private spaces. You know, this is where the emperor lived. And this is where his wife lived in such and they were smaller than our house because this was not meant to impress. This is just where they lived and you get to see both those parts. So that was. The thing. One of the things that struck me. That's a nice ovation. Yeah. Didn't didn't think about that time? But yeah that rings true. And then the only other thing I would say is as you're coming through. And I know we were there with a tour and our tour guides before we got there said if you have questions about the politics and things I can answer them for you. This is not the place to ask them. There's some sensitivity to some things that happened in Shannon square that you will not be able to find if you're googling from China, for instance. And so that's a place where you want to be a little more circumspect potentially about some of the history, especially the right protests, the old of history, and that point the older history is great to talk about their. It's some of the more recent history that that's probably not a great place to have that discussion. That's right. Excellent. So you took us out the back door of the Forbidden City where we off to next and may. Immediately. When you come out that Nolan date this place called Jingshen Pau, and I'm surprised preparing for the podcast. I looked up online and guidebook Jinxiang park rights quite low or it's not mentioned much Barney one which is surprising because it's a really cool vantage point. So Beijing is very flat city, it's on a big open. Plain ching fan pock has a heel, coal coal hill. And that was actually constructed from the earth that was dug up to create the moat around the Forbidden City, and what thing to do is to climb up that hill, and you can get three sixty views of Beijing. And of course, the best view is directly to the south, which overlooks the Forbidden City, and you can see symmetry and the alignment of the whole complex from the northern to the southern end, and you can see Tiananmen just to the south of it. So I really recommend going into Kingston pock if you wanna go in the morning. China. If you go to the pox in the morning, you'll see people singing doing possibly dances and interesting exercises older people and Jingshen park is is no different to that. So really recommend seeing Jingsheng pock, especially if if the is cleared subsidy fantastic if the air is -cluded than it won't be as spectacular. But out would seems like that'd be a great place to get the idea of the scale of the Forbidden City, which is like about a Collado by kilometer. I think. Yeah. Because you don't get that. I've you Beijing is not a place that has a lot of high-level vantage points like Shanghai has the bund, and when it's all about those views, but Beijing, though, some places into CBS you can go up to central business district. Yeah. Around Forbidden City does only really the Ching-shan park hill. So I was really surprised at this. Not more mentioned. Just when we're talking about vantage points, full gentlemen this. There's not a lot of places you can get up and have a look over at one little place..

"When I landed you couldn't see one end of the airport from the other. Although several of the days that I was there. I didn't notice it as much but one day we flew in. I was one of those days, but that he's very unfortunate. And that it can happen. Absolutely true. So why should people come to Beijing of three main reasons, I feel the first one is history. So every way a lot of places have great history. But I think Beijing is special especially in China because if we compare it to Shanghai Shanghai has great history can see the French concessions and whatnot. But Beijing history is way older than that. So Shanghai's histories listened to hundred years old Beijing history, the first walled city goes back to benefa- and Basie and the layout of the inner city around the Forbidden City is dates back to the u on dynasty, which was the thirteenth century. That's kublai Khan's grandson Asst. Established that when the Mongols ruled over China so that lay out of the city and the sites you say within a dyke back I one hundred years and through the dynasty since then the Ming and the Qing dynasty or up until nineteen eleven when the ching dynasty ended. So there's a huge amount of things to see in terms of history. But you do have the news. So just like Shanghai has the PU Dong area Shanghai has its it's BT area. And I really liked that area as well. And I think they will shoot overlook the new area. And the other reason I think Beijing is really what saying is being the capital is fantastic window into all of China's culture through the museums and calories and the food because all of China has come to Beijing for work until live. So you get great restaurants that represent all of Chinese cuisine. The last thing would be simply the gravity and the energy of Beijing being the capital and being the center of power in China. I really do feel a sense of series snus in white about it that other places don't have. On example. I always comes to mind is in Shanghai. And Beijing when you go on the subways you need to go through security check and put your bags through the x-ray machine. In shanghai. You often see people push past the security God's not put their bags through the x-ray machine. And nothing happens. If not want saying that happen in Beijing, everyone diligently puts the bag through the machine out know, what that means if they don't do it. But it's just a little sign of things the mall seriously in a way. And then you feel that you feel that here. So I think that's something to take away when you come here. All right. And what kind of tenor would you recommend for someone who had say a week to visit in the Beijing area? This all the big science, which we can run through. But I would definitely recommend trying to mix it up a bit. So the big science there and you'll go and see them, but try and. Balance that we it some more casual trips some casual walking around to some areas, go out to of course, the great wall to get out into the hills. You might wanna go to pice like seven nine eight and not district. I say that because Beijing can have a lot of traffic the sites can be extremely crowded with Chinese tourists, and it can be a bit of Wilmington. I really wouldn't recommend trying to hit all those big sites. Just after day. I'm a person that really gets temple fatigue or. One palace. You've seen the mole type thing. So I'm really conscious of not trying to recommend people. I have to say holy sites. No, see few big ones and mix it up. And I think you'll get the base experienced by doing it that way. Okay. Well, let's get a little more specific where are you going to start us the big daddy of the mole in the one that everyone will see and should see the foot bidden city. So the food bitten city is the old palace grounds and related complexes that the empress through dynasties lifting since kublai Khan established the current layout in the thirteenth century and all the emperors since then have lived there have built up there on buildings within that area. So you go into the Forbidden City, which is cold all alternately called the Palace Museum. You'll be there with half of China. At fills..

"Welcome to the traveler. I'm your host, Chris Christopherson. We have a lot to cover. So let's talk about Beijing. I'd like to welcome to the show Daniel Riechelmann who is coming to us from Beijing. And who is come to talk to us about Beijing? Daniel welcome to the show sank, Chris. I you don't sound like someone who is originally from Beijing. Now knowing foam Australia, but after finishing university, I did a a big round the world trip, which is nearly mandatory in Australia's that a law or something. They're exactly the first site rive is was China, and I only had two weeks here. But the rest of the whole trip was a seven month trip. I just couldn't stop thinking about my experience in China and all his determined to get back here after going back to a strategy. So I worked a little bit in Stryer. And then found my way back came a work and I've being here title about seven years with a fully get in the middle and the loss. Three of those seven years has been. In beijing. Excellent it now I do have to ask and this comes up later on in the conversation. But with you living there, did you speak Chinese at the time. You I went there Mandarin. That is I had spent time in China prior to Beijing. So it did have survival level Chinese, and I know that is a big thing with people travelling to China, the language really is a difficulty. It's not widely spoken apart from hotels and say to guide you just want run into English. But there are ways around that and the translation apps these days, very good. If you've got a map app on your phone that helps a whole lot does this Chinese Yuba called DD now which banks life so much easier. I can talk a little bit more about the absentee rules that I recommend using the light up it, it's definitely doable. And I don't think it should be worried about come to China without Lang. Excellent. Well, why should someone come to China just to visit first of all? Well, I I just want to address whenever I made people until the my live in China. I the first thing they size. They step back and say what about the pollution that makes my heart sink because Beijing is so much more than you know, the headline bad pollution days, which yes, it can be bad. But what makes the news is not typical, you know, by definition of design typical exit does make the international use the pollution has improved massively in the last two years as a huge if it convert to natural gas and all the surrounding areas of Beijing, and it has made a big improvement. There's a pollution app, you can see the the levels in pollution and around the world. It's linked up to all the push mortars in the world. I was looking at it destroying before we we had a call and Beijing was actually better than most. Parts of San Francisco this morning. So that gives you a little bit of a sense of the can be bad. But a lot of the time. It's great for the listeners. Just imagine big dirty Beijing because it's really not like that all the time. I must have been there to bed time..
