We'll look at how people celebrate carnival just across the water from Venice in the Balkans and in the Basque Country of Spain and France. That's on next week's travel with Rick Steves. In a minute, we get an updated view of China as it grapples with its pandemic policies and global challenges for the year ahead. Zack drywall of the young China group is in Mexico City of all places before he gets back to China for the first time since the pandemic started. He explains what he sees looming on the economic horizon for China and the world. Next. If the world has two superpowers, it's the U.S. and China. We know the choppy waters America is navigating, but China has its challenges too. Many in its wealthy business class are leaving they're just frustrated with the authoritarian government and they're setting up shop in other countries. China's population is actually dropping as it ages, a natural consequence of economic success that they've had in the recent past. This will almost certainly bring an economic slowdown. It's COVID policy is turning out to be what seems like a total mess, reflecting badly on the competence of the government, and it's a government that needs to protect its image. And the country has experienced public demonstrations lately as a result. Has been spending years in China studying its youth scene and he joins us today to share his take. On the recent challenges in China. Zack, thanks for being with us. Thanks so much for having me, Rick. Always a pleasure. Now, it seems that there's a lot to catch up on in regards to China, but before we do, let's catch up with you. First of all, remind us of your work with the young China group in the book you've written. Yeah, gosh, the first time I got to join you and your wonderful audience, I think young China had just come out. I had a book written about the subtitle is how the restless generation will change their country and the world. Really focusing on the emerging identity of young people throughout the country. Focusing particularly on second and third tier cities, so trying to get out of the Shanghai's and the Beijing's and talk to real people. And the basis for this and later my organization, the young China group, is trying to bring a people first perspective of China to the world for a better world. And the reason is pretty simple. You know, when we talk about China, even of course, in the news, especially and even your headline reflected this a little bit, we talk about two different versions. First is a big government, which is scary, right? And second is a big economy, which is either exciting or scary, depending on the day. And so the people first approach is one that's far more accessible, understandable, and empathetic. And it's one that I've been trying to advocate for really for the last 6, 7, 8 years now. Wow. And when you talk about focusing on second tier cities, in the United States, that would be maybe 300,000 or half a million people. In China, a second tier city is how big. So I lived in a sleepy little city called Chengdu that had an 8 million person population depending on how you counted. One of the best sort of cocktail party lines I have is New York is the smallest city I've lived in in the last decade. Living in China, it's the land of big numbers. Well, you know, a billion people is a thousand million. And that's a lot of big cities. A lot of big cities. He's something's going on in your personal life also. I understand you just got married to a wonderful apparently partner who is Chinese. That's right. And it's a zany story. So I got married 6 months ago, but we met in March of 2020. Taking it back even two months before that, in January of 2020, I packed for a two week trip from Beijing to the U.S. to speak at a couple of conferences. And on January 24th, I had a ticket back to Wuhan, China. My book was coming out in China. I was filming something with Tencent, which is one of the largest tech and media companies there. I got messages from my friends in Wuhan at the beginning of January saying, hey, you know, maybe push back your flight, I did, and ultimately ended up in New York, come march. Now I go on a date on March 11th, which was just about the last day you were allowed to date in New York City. And by March 13th, we had moved in together, preparing to quarantine with one another because we'd both seen so she's from qingdao, China, a beautiful city on the coast. We'd both seen what had happened in China. We knew it would be bad, probably worse than what people were talking about in the states. And so over the next few months, from not knowing one another, we then started to spend every single waking moment together. At the beginning of what has been a wonderful and in many ways charmed, relationship with no marriage. What a decision you felt the rising tide of a pandemic before other people did, because you were heading back to the epicenter of that. And you had to make a quick decision with your wife and it worked out great. So you could call that a Corona bonus. Definitely a Corona bonus. It's love in the time of Corona. We've been through it. You know, we've constantly been thinking we were going back to China, and we've thought that just about every month for the last 24 months, we had a major medical crisis in Mexico, actually my fiance at the time almost passed, fortunately, she did not. She's made a full tremendous recovery. And you know, it's a lot of ups and downs and as I know a lot of people around the world and the country have felt. And now we are finally planning after a full three years since I've left to get back to China and among other things, meet my in laws. Jack knight won't created the young China group to help western interests better understand China and the expectations of its younger generation. Zack provides his clients with its China preparedness index to clear up misperceptions before doing business in China. He's joining us right now from Mexico City. You'll find links to his work with this week's show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio. Your whole work is helping people better understand the people and the business environment and the culture of China, and that is so constructive lately, and I'm so tuned into the fact that, like most Americans, what I know about China is basically what I see in the news and you've got a much more intimate connection and what do you think the average American doesn't appreciate about China that they should? I think first and this has been foremost in people's minds, especially in the last 9 months. First is the average person in China does not feel the presence of their government at every waking moment. And this is something that's really hard to square. I think when people imagine me arriving in China, they sort of imagine I get dispatched a sort of big brother like official who then sort of follows me around around 100 meters behind me, and that's sort of my life as the months unfold. You know, before 9 months ago, the saying I used most often to help people understand the relationship between people and government is tiangong. It roughly translates to the hills are high and the emperor is far away. For the most part, the government is not an active part of people's daily lives. The major exception, of course, has been certainly these last 9 months since the Shanghai lockdowns. But even the last three years, since COVID began, it's been a far more present relationship with the government than has existed for my, you know, I've been in and around China for almost 15 years now.

"It shows all of this stuff right out of the age of Casanova. Historian Lawrence Bergman's biographies of Columbus, Magellan, and Marco Polo, as well as Louis Armstrong and Irving Berlin have been translated into more than two dozen languages. His latest book in search of a kingdom explores the exploits of what he calls the queen's favorite pirate, a temperamental redhead we know from our history books as sir Francis Drake. Right now on travel with Rick Steves, Lawrence is telling us about the life of giacomo Casanova, who charmed everyone from young girls to old popes in 18th century Venice. When we're in Venice, we have this history all around us and there were these 400 families and all of these aristocrats who really were above the normal rules and these libertines, which was the hedonist of the day that wanted to almost be promiscuous as a Declaration of Independence from conservative mores have had guides take me to these kind of like aristocratic man caves. They called him casinos. The word casino comes from these little hideaways for aristocrats. Talk about the life of these aristocrats and they would have a maybe a palace on the mainland and a little hideaway in Venice. Since Spanish was so tiny many of the aristocrats did have a mansion or a very large house on the mainland and they went back and forth, especially around Padua, and they had their mistresses. They gambled, incessantly, Casanova wasn't the only one, the main gambling area was called the rotato, which was highly popular in served as a magnet for tourists across Europe. Of course there were the famous cafes of Venice, which also attracted a lot of tourists and had a very, very active street life and cafe life. You know, and when we're on the main square in the Piazza San Marco, you've got several of these elegant old world cafes and florians most famous I believe in with the famous dueling orchestras and most of the tourists sit outside to enjoy the outdoor orchestras, but I really like going inside and sitting in some of these cozy little cafe rooms. And they look more or less as they did in Casanova's time. Now it's interesting. He writes about how lively the scene was as a young person and in any also writes how empty and deserted and sand they became after Napoleon conquered Venice when Casanova was much older, and he went back briefly to visit, and all the street life had gone out of it. So Venice underwent a dramatic change in his lifetime. Venice was also a city of a lot of music, oddly enough, Casanova disliked music, but this was the city of Vivaldi, the red priest as he was known, and many other composers, music was in the air. It was the city of commedia dell'arte, especially goldoni, who wrote many plays that his mother, the famous actress acted in, so there was a lot of cultural life in Venice as well. It wasn't just decadence. Lawrence, let's just talk about as a visitor to Venice if we want to just imagine the allure of the place that the romance of the place in the 1700s take us to a little spot in Venice that inspires you to go back and feel the moment of Casanova's time. Well, I would say anywhere along the Grand Canal, but it's not so much a place in my own mind as Venice, but it's a time of year. I was once there at November, and it was cold and it got dark early and it was foggy and it was damp, the tourists were gone, and I remember being there and walking around the streets of Venice at night when they were just a few cats running around and shadows around the corner and you didn't know what you'd see if you walked down an alley. That's another side of Venice which I thought was very haunting and very moody and I've never forgotten it just what I think of Venice I actually think of this moody nighttime foggy Venice very noir Venice, if you will. Lawrence Bergman, fascinating book, Casanova, the world of a seductive genius.

"On the models he's finding for economic growth in the years ahead. People in China have a lot in common with people in Mexico. In terms of what they need, how they use technology, how they access the Internet, how they access credit, how they access debt. They have a lot in common with people in Indonesia throughout Southeast Asia throughout India. It's all coming up on travel with Rick Steves. Stay with us. Young American who consult businesses on what the millennial generation in China wants is finding that Mexico is poised to play a larger role in the trade relationship between global powers. Zach dike wall tells us why he's in Mexico City on his way to China. And he'll update us on the pandemic's impacts on Chinese society in just a bit on today's travel with Rick Steves. 300 years ago, Venice was a required stop on the grand tour for young European gentlemen of means it was a place to enjoy part of their coming of age. Historian Lawrence Berg read looks at the pleasure capital of Europe through the eyes of one of its best known authors and adventurers, giacomo, Casanova. His book is Casanova, the world of a seductive genius. Lawrence, thanks for joining us. I'm glad to be here. Thank you. So Casanova, I mean, he's just synonymous for a great lever in a great seducer, but he's more than that. I mean, he's an incredible personality and thankfully he left a massive memoir for us to learn. Give us a little thumbnail about why he is such an exceptional personality. Well, in addition to all his exploits for which he is so well known in which he writes about in great detail, he wrote published about a 150 books and pamphlets during his lifetime, 12 volumes of memoirs, plays a three volume science fiction novel, political journalism, all sorts of polemics, a translation of the Iliad into Italian from Greek. So he had a huge literary output. In addition to that, he was a mathematical genius which was part of his success as a gambler he was a professional gambler. He was a gambler, so he takes a lot of money to have a hundred mistresses, and yes, he did he get most of that money from gambling? That was how he got almost all his money, and he understood the laws of probability which was an emerging mathematical concept in his lifetime in the 18th century, and he actually managed to when he escaped to Paris, convinced the French crown to institute a lottery because they badly needed money using Casanova system which was based on a lottery in Genoa, they instituted a very successful lottery raised money quickly Casanova got his share of the ticket offices around Paris and very quickly became wealthy, although he blew it on all sorts of ridiculous business adventures, but that would have empowered France which eventually overthrew the Venetian republic, right? Yes, it's a funny story. It's kind of comes around money was used to finance the ecole militaire, the French military academy in Paris. One of the first students to go there was a young Corsican named Napoleon Bonaparte, ten years after he graduated when he was still in his late 20s, he conquered Venice. By that time Casanova had fled the city, and that was the end of a thousand years of the Venetian empire. But that was the last nail in the coffin of the Venetian republic, because it was already in decline. And Napoleon didn't like Venice he didn't like Venetians he sent Josephine in his stand to go visit, he didn't even want to see it, but at that point, Venice, which had been in decline for a long time, fell easily and that was the end of it. However, the Venetian mystique endorsed to this day. Oh yeah, but now when you think of Venice, it's hard to underestimate what a power it was for centuries. I mean, a thousand years ago, it was the economic superpower in Europe. Its dollar was the dollar, and then it slowly, part of the problem was, in fact, you wrote a book I think about Marco Polo and all the trade that Venice got from the east, but when we have Vasco da Gama and Magellan and Columbus, you know, around the year 1500, all of a sudden the trade's gone and Venice is just sitting on its laurels and over time, it just becomes a city of decadence in decline. It's sort of a time warp and talk about Venice in the 18th century. It really was sort of the sin city of Europe back then. What happens in Venice stays in Venice, right? Yes, it just became more and more ossified. It seemed caught in the Middle Ages, even as the rest of European history went on and it lost its colonies. It lost its economic prowess. It was still controlled by the same 400 families who were written down in the golden book the so called Libra. And this was a very, very tightly knit cased which concentrated power, but also strangled Venice. You know, it was so conservative, they had to have an outlet and maybe that's why carnival. It's just synonymous with Venice. It is so that is, of course, there's carnival in many other countries, but interestingly enough, we think of carnival in the masks in Venice, particularly only a carnival time. However, in Venice, by law. Venetians had to wear a special costume and masks all year round, not just a carnival, and not only outdoors, but indoors. And they were not allowed to speak to foreigners, contact or conversations with foreigners were by law outlaws. So that was a very introverted culture in Casanova's day. And you even read in your book that there were some masks that were designed for women not to talk to anybody at all. Yeah, it's really extraordinary. The woman's mask was a circular black one called a moretta. It had a button in the middle and a woman held it between her teeth, and of course that way she couldn't talk. The man's mask was a rigid white one called about, which was sort of scary. That's what Casanova and everybody else was wearing. This also made it possible for a lot of murder and mayhem to take place in the streets and back alleys of Venice, especially at night, and seductions when there were all these balls. And you can see pictures from Casanova's day, everybody's there in their masks. In a ball, indoors, it's not carnival, wearing the Venetian costume, which was a three cornered hat, and a mantle and kind of a puffy shirt or blouse, so Venetians had a very distinctive dress it was a very, very particular part of Italy and Europe. So it sounds like these were repressed people like over sexed Jackson boxes that were just ready to spring open at the first excuse. The first little private time on a gondola and bam. That in Venice were different. They looked more or less like they do now. However, they had enclosed cabins, so they became venues for seduction, so if you're with a woman on a gondola, you would close the windows and you could proceed aboard a gondola, which in fact Casanova did also convents in Venice were often venues for seduction, convents, convents and Venice, many of them were actually harems. And the women were sent there not because they were pursuing religious vocations, but because their wealthy families, especially the 400 families who controlled Venice, wanted to make sure they didn't get married and dilute the family fortune and dilute the family bloodlines. What happened is they were kept there literally behind bars, but they would receive visitors, Casanova and many others, and especially tourists across Europe and England who would come bearing gifts and court them and every so often they would have orgies there behind bars or they would escape for a few hours and go to a small casino or some other building for an assignation and then creep back to their convent, in order to convent why not. Casanova writes about this. I was skeptical I thought, well, this must be his super active imagination, but I came across many other accounts of these really scandalous goings on at Venice. Lauren's I've seen paintings of these convents with all of these women that look like they're in a bordello and don't miss the karaza goats. The museum of 18th century Venice, and

"For young seedlings to sprout. So again, we've really big cycles happening here. Why has this been so hard to figure out we know about these weather patterns? We know about these climate events, and we know we often notice when the trees are going through a masking year. Why has it been so difficult to figure out the relationships? So it's been hard to figure out the relationships because number one, the ecologists and the plant biologists that study masks and don't really know a lot about climate oscillations and people who study climate oscillations don't really know much about biology. The second problem is there hasn't been a compilation of data so that you can see, okay, well, we had masking events all over the western United States in this particular year. So there's no pattern that you can really discern. But that is on the horizon. There is a database that's coming around that's going to help researchers answer some of these questions? Yes, that's right. Researchers in Europe started out by just compiling records of beach and Norway spruce masking events throughout the last 200 years. And once they had all those events mapped out, they could then overlay when the climate oscillations were changing and sort of see a pattern. And now there is even bigger database that has more records in it from more places. And it's includes a lot of species. If these databases can help pick out some of the important correlations for climate, these oscillations, maybe some other factors that people haven't even considered yet. And masting years, what will that mean when we get a better handle on this? Can we predict masking years? What we learn once that correlation is in place. Once we understand what triggers mask thing, we can have a better sense of when mask thing will occur. Once we have that sense, then we can have a better sense of how to prepare for the after effects of mask thing. Like the bad stuff? Oh, the ticks are over abundance of stoats. Yeah, so in New Zealand, there's a good example of this where conservationists use temperature differences from one season to the next to predict masking in the southern beach that covers the south island. When the beach is mass, the number of mice increased and the number of their predator a stove increases as well. But of course, the mask thing last one season and then the mice have nothing to eat. So they decrease the number. And so the stoats then start turning to native birds for food. And conservationists worry about that and need to take action of that. And so if they can predict them asking year, they can then predict when they're going to have to take countermeasures to control the stoke population down the road. What about positive effects of understanding the masting years? Can we take advantage of the fact that we're going to have a bumper crop of acorns in some way? Well, if you're in Europe and you raise your pigs in the old fashioned way, then what you do is you take advantage of these bunker crops and let your pigs run wild in the forest to fatten up. Liz, were you surprised that this was an unresolved question that masking was pretty mysterious? You know, I'm not surprised because there's so many factors that can go into whether or not a tree will produce a lot of seeds, produce no seeds, produce a small amount of seeds that I could imagine that it would be very hard to tease out what the actual trigger is. And why that trigger is this. Thanks, Liz. Well, thank you. It's a very interesting topic. Yeah. Liz PDC is a staff writer for science.

Nineteen twenty year.

"I say she found him was kind of me. Candyman was a guy named sheffield's who were pimco. It had a hook for a hand just like him before he even knew who the hell candyman right right. It was like wait a minute. I mean unless candyman already had his is saying. You know like you'll start you know what i mean. That guy gets. He's i'm gonna be a good future. You man yeah they'd never explain really ties in. You know what i mean and this is. I will tell you that this is a direct sequel to the first one as i have a couple couple of times you already saw the commercial The trailer right here maybe Maybe they know who this was. But that's vanessa williams from the first movie. I'll that's all i'll say so. She is a direct tie to the first film. She may have been my favorite character in the whole movie. I thought she was very good. And i don't know how old she is but she. Yeah exactly. I was like how young she in that first movie. Because she came on. And i didn't. I was like oh this must be the sister. Yeah almost say so much. But i just say yeah man. I don't know how ocean but nessa williams gorgeous but you know this is this is this is tied into the to the first movie so i think they make so many references. They in fact they do a whole now. What is cool is if you have seen candyman. Recently our view of fan you know very well. One of the cool things they do is that they show how the the the the legend of candyman has changed overtime. People just retelling it and and it's you know a lot of people don't remember it to say that's the haven't just recently watched the candyman and with the way they tell it differently. Yeah me wonder. If people there'll be a lot of people who will just go in thinking the way they tell it now it's like. Oh yeah that's how. I remember it being nano. No well you know like i say. I don't even remember the first movie from thirty years ago. I had to watch it again. But it's real cool. They show how you know. Just urban legends get changed over time and they did a big thing here now saying that because it might help if you go and watch the old candyman again just brush up on if you don't remember a whole lot because they reference it a lot a lot. There's so many call bags and connections to the original movie that i could see. If you don't remember anything about it you can be a little lost and if you don't watch it before then you'll definitely want to go and try to catch up with it and watch it afterwards to figure out some things i will say that You know this is a hard movie and it takes a long time to get to the heart there. Like i said they spent a lot of time on the art in the art world before they really get into candyman which they drop every now and then again explaining an exposition but once they do get the candy man. I think it's actually the kills a brilliant man because candidate in here. They established that candyman. He lives in a mira world and we don't see him in real life slicing up people. You know what we do see people who they look like they'd be an attack by the invisible man while the in some parts. Either you see. Are you infer that candyman. Just making the gestures in in the reflection or mirror somewhere actually thought that even though it's not consistent with how it's done especially after he goes in and kills people invisibly and then he kills people invisibly and then he will show up right after another like could just been hearing exactly but look cool. It is still cool. I mean it is. It is a creative way to go in and so the kills and the gore in horrible without just emphasizing the gore. I mean there was one scene where they show somebody and again. This goes to the creative direction of dna. Cost demand show will kill from afar. And you just see somebody who's being rag doll in mid air and i liked the way that they did try to concentrate on making you know artistry making a film more than like. Let's just show a bunch of blood not that you don't see blood in here. I mean there's a lot of glorious open wounds just spewing blood it's very candyman like yeah it is sometimes that gets crazy. S- casanova day just like there's there's a scene where you see somebody little feet pick up and it's just like somebody just like somebody just poured a bucket of kool-aid down right like this is kgo kool-aid fountain again. Somebody knocked the pitcher over told you you look at the president. They killed like that body did not hold that much blood in there. So you know. Sometimes it's again. They do do things just for the gore. But it's a little more creative than what i thought. It would be looking at it even when they do emphasize the big open. Gaping wounds in their couple of scenes of that. Right there Anyway anything you want to add to that man. Uh well. I i must say like i felt like this. You know as horror movies go. It's a good movie. It's like you know prestige harz as they call it now when you get these art directors who put a lot more money care into like a craft like craft beer craft. And i think there are moments when it's very good but i think it it falls short of the greatness that it had all the potential for for all the cool things in it especially a lot of like we talked about the the compositions all They're just story beats or just elements to it. That aren't cohesive. Now you talk about the the loose ends it. Don't get tied up or the changes in tone that are questionable or just the way i mean one thing i feel like the original movie head over. This is that with those deaths. There'll be investigated there was like an aftermath that at and a lotta times people here die and it's almost like it's kinda forgotten like nobody really cares. There was something with me. There's a there are scenes where they report that. Yes something something happened. But it's the ones that are close. The characters they followed something not consistent with is that they they have characters that just walk away from the story and we walk with them and it's almost like what will follow him. It's like wait a minute. You missed the movie still over here while we hold on. Hey we'll be right back. We follow them for some reason. They will follow this character in neil. There's a massacre in this movie and it barely gets touched on in in nest the one that should have got the most attention. Right yes stuff. That's public sure it's on television but you like okay. There were people around the cops like they show up. They photographing egg-laying we. We don't care about these. People is just weird because it should be that that sense of like. hey man. Something's gonna come. That's that's another force should be working. Gets the people in here some some great effects that happen and and you're right. the kills. A lot of kills are inventive. Although i just found myself not having a real like feeling for any of the victims are stuff. I felt like i should have been more mostly involved and i kept. It kept me at arm's length. They like it wouldn't settle and let me get into the beginning What's his name is an artist. But i don't really see him creating other than when he's going nuts as like it would have been so good to really see him get into it or just treating being artists and artists as something real as opposed to like. Let's think of artists like in a movie and a black movie when they had somebody in business and they're like well. I'm gonna make partner next week. Ailing exactly works and a lot of this is like this could have been tighter. But like i said it's entertaining. I think for a lot of people is going to do what they want. And i'm sorry. Well the other thing is like and it's something we brought up early. It kind of does something that annoys me with spike lee which is like man. I'm all behind the things you want to bring up. But you say you're gonna talk about this and now to talk about this you bring it up this shit and bringing up this and bringing and we can just focus on one or two things. Everybody is happy. And i'll get educated and learn and be entertained and you'll be happy. You taught me something. You.

"We got it for you. Heat is distrct subjects. Cazenove is living in my house. Dear stephen shirley. I'm fifty five year. Old mother still raising a twenty four year old man and he's still living in my house. All of my family calls him cast over. because he's very handsome with a head full of black curls. He's never been full of himself but he's well aware of how good he looks. He's never been in a relationship and when he was in high school girls used to call my house so much. I had to restrict call. Sometimes my mother lived with us until she died and she spoiled him beyond belief when he was growing up. She made up. This bed cooked whatever he asked for did his laundry and gave him all of her money. After she passed my son started messing with older women and they take care of him now. I blame myself for allowing this to happen. But i had no idea he would turn out like this recently. He got himself into something. That is good looks couldn't fix. He got caught with a married woman and her husband came to my house. And buster's the windows out of my son's car and mind. I didn't even call the cop. I made my son pay for the damage and told him that he's got to move out of my house by his twenty fifth birthday. He has seven months to figure it out his lack of respect for women. And for me. Stresses me out continuously. I just talked with him about having sex in my house and last week i saw a grown woman in my house clocking from my son's room to the bathroom one morning. I'm afraid he's going to get himself in another situation and there will be more than glass being broken. How can i stop him from being womanizer. Please advise well. I think you trying to stop them from being a womanizer is at this point loss. 'cause because that's what he is right now and he's cool with it. He likes who he is. I mean what what you can do though is make it difficult for him to be a casanova as you and your family call. Call him by putting him out of your house and if he refuses to to abide by your rules while he's in your home he's gotta go. Those are the rules. Those are the rules Plain and simple then he won't have anywhere to bring these women think about that and they won't be walking around your house. Okay so move the data you told him by his twenty fifth birthday. That's seven months away. Move that data. You can do that telling you changed your mind. You don't owe him anything and he's putting you and your home in jeopardy with these women he's dealing with so i know you love your son and all that i know you love him. This doesn't mean you're cutting him out of your life just means you have to protect yourself and what's yours at this point because mrs mr kassar nova is doing that. It's called tough love mom and he needs a large dose of it right now. He knows that whatever he does..
