"Is also feeling the pain. Massive floods are affecting millions of people the world Rebecca cancers in Shanghai and says the worst hit areas are in the city of Zhengzhou and surrounding a non province in central China. Throughout the province. There's about 10 cities and urban and rural areas that have been affected, But because Zhengzhou is a city about 10 million, it's getting a lot of attention. And there's been a lot of footage on social media about about the situation in Yangzhou, but actually it's been around the region. So about 100,000 people had to be relocated because of the flood. And this has been going on for several days now since Saturday, So there's some really dramatic scenes showing up on social media. What have you been saying? One video that I got sent from someone? I know who's living there showed just how scary this kind of flooding can be. Yeah, yeah. Are you admire? Come on. I? Yeah, I don't know the woman filming this video. She's live streaming and she's pointing it at the street, which is just covered in water, and it looks like a river And she's saying Oh my gosh, there's a father and his child that are just swept away swept right down the street by by the floodwaters, so she's just yelling at them. Please get to hold on to something, but there's nothing that they can hold onto. And the water is about the level of the hood of the cars on the side of the street. But the video that I've been seeing all over the Internet is this one, which was shot in one of Guangzhou's subway cars on Tuesday night, are you Uh, here, you know, Jamal, what's going on there? Rebecca? What's happening is you're seeing the inside of a subway car. Everybody inside the subway car is sort of grabbing onto the strap hangers and the water is all the way up to their chest almost up to their shoulders. It's dark in the subway car, and it's just very scary because you can imagine they were there for several hours before they were able to be evacuated out and 12 people died. That's
Flooding in Central China Turns Streets to Rivers, Kills 12
"It's the massive flooding in central Henan province in China. A dozen people are reported to have been killed. 100,000 moved into shelters as rivers have burst. Dams are threatened, and the capital Guangzhou subway system is shut down with passengers trapped in rising water. As a point of comparison, the catastrophic floods in Germany saw less rain fall in 24 hours and fell in China in just one hour. Now across social media are videos like this one of a series of explosions. An alum in Ium factory caused by flood water rushing in the menu can here are looking at what looks like a bomb going off in the distance everywhere of videos of flooded roads with cars floating away human drama like this, emergency workers are dragging a woman to safety. Has been swept by the floodwaters into a drainage system. And in some cases, the drama of the visuals wasn't enough. They have music added for effect citizens, helping one another in a crisis, trying to rescue others in distress, holding out branches for people to grab on as their swept down streets. By gushing water. One thing that stood out for me was footage from inside a subway carriage with commuters up to their armpits, patiently standing as waters rush past the windows of the doors. At an even higher level than that, that they're

Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
"Joined by. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel former Obama. White House Health Policy Advisor. He's Vice Provost Global Initiatives University of Pennsylvania and Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine Doctor Manual. When we start with you. Where do you see us right now? Are we doing enough in terms of large scale social disruption and changes to slow the transmission of this epidemic? So first of all. I've been saying for several weeks now that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Parsley it's GonNa get worse because we have testing. That's just going to show us how prevalent the illness is. It's also getting worse because we know we have more community acquired infections as I mentioned to someone today. You know one week ago. We weren't even talking about new Rochelle and now new. Rochelle is a major topic in New York. And that's a lockdown and if we focus on new Rochelle without thinking about all the other places that this virus is maybe Washington. Dc maybe the suburbs of Baltimore. Who knows where the problem is? We need a more systematic less uneven response. That has to be pretty uniform. Because just 'cause we're seeing it new Rochelle doesn't mean Rochelle's the only place in New York that Scott and that response does have to include things like much more prevalent testing so we really have a handle on who's got it and who doesn't and a really good model is South Korea if you look at their trends you can see that. They're beginning to bend in South Korea. We also do need to inform people. We use the term social distancing like everyone knows what it means. It's not immediately obvious to people what that entails and how much you need to be separate from people explain to what should people know about but a large part of it. You people have come up with all these numbers no more than one hundred people to meet no more. The issue is density. How close are you to people? How easy is it for the droplets to spread? How much are you sort of packed in light sardines or not and that real? I mean that's a physical thing That is really important and I do think we probably need to educate people to minimize the. They're our contact and to stay home more. You can go out where there's no one else if you're going walking in the woods or something or going to a place where there are other people But I do think Restricting how we move around is going to be important I will note that not every but most of the Ivy League schools now for example colleges mine included. We're going online. The second half of the semester is all going to be online. Students aren't going to be in. Dormitories accepts students. That can go back to their home country and still complete the semester. So you are seeing a lot of action. But it's not concerted and that's what it's not systematic and that's what's bothering me Dr Hotels. We've been checking with you throughout the unfolding of the goal pandemic and I'm curious. Are we learning more about the virus itself about the basics about the transmission rate? Which seems to be maybe lower than at first. We thought the fatality rate the incubation period. Where is our knowledge right now about this so the transmission rate still seems to be? Pretty High Dr Fao. She mentioned. It's probably a significantly higher than the influenza as well as the mortality rate. But the you know just to echo and reinforce some of the things zeke Doctor Emmanuel was was saying we've learned a few things from a recent analysis. My colleague Mark Lipchitz sit at Harvard School of Public Health Chan School of Public Health together with a student a doctoral student. Ruan Lee didn't analysis of the Chinese cities in terms of how severe the epidemic is with the extreme example being Wuhan rare nine thousand people wound up in and severely ill with two thousand in the ICU versus city. Like Long Joe where there was only twenty a big difference right and it looked like it's primarily to do to how quickly you got on top of things after sustained community transmission started. So they let it go for six weeks. Before they implemented aggressive control and testing whereas in Guangzhou were the only at twenty cases one week. What's the lesson learned from the United States We're now about three weeks into this in terms of sustained community transmission. We had our first case of community transmission around the end of April so subtract a week before then. So we're getting to the point where because we're not doing adequate diagnostic testing and implementing those very important control measures. That seek pointed out. We're in a situation. Where we could risk being closer to Wuhan and Guangzhou and and we do we. We can't be there so now is a very critical period over the next couple of weeks where we have to be very aggressive about closing down major venues. We just this Houston. Today with the Rodeo was a tough decision but was the right decision that we're going to have to do this all over the country right now and the reason is this because if we miss that opportunity we then have. Our new problem becomes surge capacity hospitals. Where we're not gonNA have enough beds. We're not GONNA have enough into ventilators. We don't want to go in that direction. So now's now czar. Big Schnauzer going to be our last chance. We've already missed that in over the last few weeks. Can I reemphasize something? Peter says which is so in the entire United States. We have about eight hundred thousand hospital beds a little under eight hundred thousand hospital beds. In the entire United States we have under seventy thousand adult intensive care unit. Beds we have about sixty five thousand ventilators with the strategic supply. I've heard that it goes up slightly under one hundred thousand. That's our maximum capacity in the country at the moment if you imagine that even two percent of the population gets the corona virus and we have about six percent who are seriously. Ill GonNa need a respirator. We've exhausted all that supply. Just for those patients. Forget the heart attack patients. Forget the patients who need it for any other reason and I think what Peter said is exactly right we probably have missed two or three turns over the last few weeks where we could have gotten things down and just focusing on the hot spots. Seattle New Rochelle. I think is not. We need a much more systematic countrywide approach so that we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. Which already you know doesn't have that much search capacity in it. Dr Hotels Final Point to you for people that are watching this I. I've struggled with this for the last three weeks right. Communicating in a way that does not induce catastrophe or panic but also is clear eyed about the risks. And I do think it's worth just going back to the distinction between your individual risk you random American one of three hundred thirty million that you will get very sick and need to be hospitalized or may as life threatening illnesses that individual risk for any given random person is probably low in the grand scheme of things and this systemic risk to the society and to the healthcare system which is extremely high at this moment. Is that a fair way of phrasing. It yeah absolutely and also remember. It's it's all about communicating. What our top priorities are in. This is what I've been disappointed about. We've lost a lot of time because of a blanket statements that are not backed by data saying this is contained. This is this is the cold. This is the flu when in fact we know that there are specific groups that are at high risk including older older individuals those with underlying disabilities and our healthcare workers. And so what I've been looking for is at the White House. Press briefings to say. Look these are four. Bit Concerns Right. These are three or four populations That were concerned about This is a why we need to get on top of this very quickly. And here's what we're doing about it and and historically the American people have responded very well to this They understood this three. Bola Zeka as we say. This is not our first Rodeo so so we know how to respond and we just need that clear kind of concise messaging right now. All right. Just had one thing to Chris. Point which is we also do know the ass for any individual. The risk is low except we do know that there are certain people and Peter Emphasize of those who are over sixty or sixty five those who have chronic illness. They are at high risk and what we have done in. This country is aggregate them in nursing homes. Those are most vulnerable people people in nursing and we really have to social distance. There reduced the number of visitors. Probably two zero. Make sure that people are counting up and taking a donning protective equipment so that we don't have that Patriot play just explode with corona virus like it did in Seattle because almost every one of them is really on the verge just like the cruise ships. Good Point -portant point Zeki Manual. Dr Peter Hotels. Thank you

Why You Should Visit the Canary Islands
"Why should someone go to the Canary Islands. It's hard the summit up in one sentence but to absolutely Canary Islands are ornately unique landscape. Each island is probably different than the last there are white sand beaches black sand beaches. There are volcanoes stunning scenery views. Like the Grand Canyon on some of the islands there are pine forests. And you can get everything. It's for both adventure. Tourists that love to hike and explore for and people that want to sit back and enjoy Pinochle Outta so. There's a little bit of everything and you aren't going to see scenery like this anywhere else on the planet will you. You mentioned it was off the coast of Morocco. I guess we haven't said where it belongs. In terms of culturally. It is not Moroccan. It is not. It is actually part of Spain fine but it still has a lot of African roots and the historic people that live there before the Spanish inquisition were called Guavas. And so there's still a lot of historical artifacts in historical sites on the islands. That are really interesting for people interested in the more historical aspect of the islands as well. Well the the name comes from the Latin for the island of dogs can are not canary and because the guavas worship dogs and now is the part that I didn't know until I was doing the research for the show. Yeah it's really interesting in on one of the bigger islands tannery fe. There's actually some caves that you can visit where they're are actually still some remains of the ancient Guangzhou's that used to live on the island. Yeah it's really interesting to see some of that more historical outside of non European aspect excellent. Well what kind of itinerary do you recommend so first of all. There's a number of different silence as you see some major islands. Where would you recommend we fly into? It started it depends on how long trip you're going to take and I would recommend either going for seven days or fourteen days while you could do a shorter trip as well. I would recommend either flying into Grand Canaria or flying into tenor. Fa and if you fly into Grand Canaria which is the largest island and probably the one of the most popular especially for Europeans. There's a ton of stuff to do on that island Winston itself so you could also choose to do one island but let's start with a seven day itinerary because that's probably what most people would have have the time to do especially coming from the US so flying into Gran Canaria. You'd WANNA spend two or three days there and the great thing about all the islands islands is that for the most part you can take varies from one island to the next. And if you're doing a seven day itinerary you would WanNa pick either the eastern islands or the Western islands to save time from Gran Canaria which has beautiful beaches. It's got pine forests or some fantastic fantastic hiking on this island as well spend a few days there. Then you would want to depart in the evening to Sweat Ventura which You can take a a ferry to and that island has a lot of white sand beaches. That's the Sandy Beach Island because it is a little bit closer to the African taken coast. It gets that wind swept landscape. And there's some beautiful sea caves there. You can explore and some great beachside restaurants restaurants and from that island you can spend a day and then take the ferry over to lend throat and Lanzarote has tim and fire national park. which is about an area of about a thousand volcanoes and go will do a thousand? I did not though yes so its its. Nickname is the land of a thousand volcanoes. And it's an absolutely otherworldly landscape and I have never been to Hawaii but this this was another level of extraterrestrial landscape. And there's a lot of volcano that you can hike to and there's a lot of places where the lava or ancient lava has come up to next to the road and you can get out and walk around in it and it's really really interesting. There's also a place. Is there called Lahar area. which is this area where they have cultivated the ancient lava to grow wine? And you can do wine tastings there and even stay at a little winery as well. Well let's finish the area then we'll come back and do this obviously at much more detail. Yes so after lands are out. Then you'd WanNa fly to ten Kinda repay and spend your last two days there before departing back to the United States and you would connect through either Madrid Barcelona Celona or Lisbon most likely plying from the US. Okay so you started on Gran Canaria and what are we gonna do either so on Gran Canaria. There are a lot of things to do and GonNa depend on what you're interested in for if you're into the beaches than you're going to want to stay in the loss terrace area. which is the big beach town can get some exercise? They are walking along the beach enjoying doing lots of different restaurants and cafes. There's paddle boarding. You can do right out side if you stay on one of the beachfront hotels but one of the things that I loved. Today there was actually go up to Tom. Adama Nature Park and this area. It looks a lot like northern California. It's so so surprising. There's these endless pine forests. When I saw it I was like oh I had no idea that anything like that existed especially on an island that's close is to Africa so that was really interesting for me and up near that area? There's also some other great places that you can hike and walk at one is called the magic window and it looks out over. This giant monolith called the rock new blow and basically from this arch called the magic window. It's a natural sandstone arch. If you go at sunset you can see this. Trent monolith in the background is absolutely stunning. So I highly recommend going and doing that. And you can also hike to the monolith. It's a little bit farther away. They're not close together. But you could hide that whole area. But that's all remnants. The olds volcanoes. That created the island. So I definitely recommend that to and enjoying the beaches and other areas around the island as well so that would be what I recommend downgrade

"And it was a bit more expensive. But the food was quite good and some really inventive twists with classic Chinese dishes. Like barbecued pork that some flavors that that I'd never really tasted before. So if you wanna splurge one night that would be somewhere the might consider. There's a very nice garden in there as well. My wife's aunt and uncle live in Wong, Joe. So they're very up-to-date with. The latest restaurants to go to. So last month. They took us to a place called you, Dan, which has a couple of establishments in the Guangzhou area now, and it was quite good. It was bursting at the seams. We had wait for a while. But the food was very good, and very inexpensive there. So those are a couple of ideas for places to go and eat deem. Some is a little difficult for somebody. The very first time the whole process is is very different than this still dude in a traditional fashion in Guangzhou where you get the people with the carts rather than menu. It depends. But I think more and more you're getting to the menu. Nobody's pushing the carts by but you've got pictures, and you can write down exactly how many one of each thing. And there are some very tame things on the deem some menu. I think some of the dumplings, especially. Very approachable by people the tripe a little less. So the dumplings I think a lot of people can find good dumpling or bun that they'll enjoy I I'm a big fan of the chicken feet, but less so for me. I wasn't the first time. I tried it. And that's the thing. I just kind of place pointless. There's just not a lot of meat in chicken. Well, as I learned how to eat them. I found that you just have to pop the whole thing in your mouth and spit out, the gristle, knuckles and everything. That's that's really the only way to do it. I think like anywhere you try stuff. And even if you don't like it the first time you try it again. I don't know if you've ever tried Chris the soybean milk. Not sure I have the first time. I tried soybean milk. I did not like it at all. I thought I was going to vomit and I tried it again. Luckily, and I just love it. I mean to me it's the perfect drink. If you're getting some Chinese bakery, which you're gonna find to be very similar to Hong Kong. You've got all the same things. The great taught of the tar this soybean milk. There really isn't much to it. It's soybeans and water and sugar. But it's the list. I would try it in the wintertime often they serve it hot. Which is good too. There's a tart there that I think you've talked about before. Four called the Pawtucket. It looks like the eg tart. Okay. But it looks kind of burnt at the top. I'm sure and this came from the Portuguese. And when I first saw these I thought one getting knows somebody burnt them. And so I didn't try them. But when I was in Lisbon a few years ago, and if you've been in Lisbon before there's a area of the city called Belem that has a place where people line up for these things for these what they call the potok, or it's a it has cream with it. And that's why it gets burnt on the one you're talking about and the Portuguese put cinnamon on it, which is delicious. You're not gonna find any cinnamon in China. But you really should try that one there's coconut tarred as well. And and lots of different pineapple bonds and cocktail bonds that have very sweet coconut sugary mixture in the middle. That's very good. So now with the. Pineapple buns. You took him to the buds that look like a pineapple boulevard caboodle about which is kinda flavored. But looks like a pineapple. Exactly. It's kind of this cross hatch pattern. Exactly. Yeah. I think I have tried some that have some pineapple in them on it. And recently, I've seen people putting butter in the middle of it which kinda to me, but I'm not a foodie, but when I'm in Joe, I'm I'm very picky. The vantage. I've always found with bakery to everything is displayed there, you could just point. So yes, you need no language skills whatsoever. And this is true in China as well as any place else, you've just then had her money. They take the appropriate amount. If you if you can't even get the money, right? The. The. What's inside the buns? Yes. Some disappointing experiences, generally not in China, it's likely to be a bean curd or cream mish. Kind of filling or something like that cave casually. Come across. I think that's salmon or something like that. That wasn't what I was looking for. But but generally, it's it's a pretty low risk, and it's also pretty cheap. So yes. And if you don't like red bean, which the Chinese put on everything, right? That's probably right thing that you can run into in a bond with you're not sure what's inside. So right question for you mentioned in the winter. And then you also mentioned when you were down at the island that there were a lot of people their best time to go summer is going to be a lot warmer. Yes. I would avoid the summer. Humid. And I think like the resort that we talked about. I think it's going to be packed. You're not gonna get those great prices. I love the fall. I think the fall is is perfect. I've been there. A couple of times over the thanksgiving holiday. I would watch out for Golden Week. Yes. Watch out for Chinese of which is usually sometime January through March in that timeframe. But I wouldn't go that time of year. Anyway, I mean, if you're from the upper midwest like I am you can handle those temperatures. But it's just not that pleasant. So I wouldn't go January through March during winter spring kinda rainy with the monsoonal weather. The comes in summer is is a little hot and sticky. So if you can go in the fall, I would say between the mid September and the end of December. That's when I would go I think that's a perfect period. The people need to do before they go to Guangzhou. Yes. I would just encourage people to really check this place out. I don't think it's on a lot of people's radar. But hopefully after some of the things we've covered today, some more people check it out. Excellent. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Guangzhou or the region. I'll give you the whole region here where you standing, and what are you looking at? I'm going to do something a little different. I hope it's okay. Chris. I'm going to sit down if that's okay instead of stand you say that I'm in a tea house in Guangzhou, and I've ordered my deem some, and it's just arrived at the table. And I've got this huge bounty of delicious dumplings all lay down in front of me. And I'm grabbing my chopsticks and ready to dig in. That's the most beautiful. I I can imagine. I mean, the resort area that we talked about was very. Beautiful too with very verdant hills in the ocean breezes, but the food in in Guangzhou, there's there's a saying there's a Chinese saying I'll say it in Cantonese, it's sick joy Guang JAL. And I think the best way to translate that is when in Guangzhou eat or the best thing to do. Joe is eat, and I couldn't agree more. Excellent. And one thing that makes you laugh and say only one Jiao, I'll say the other. Okay, it's language related about the language just a little bit. And I think we know sometimes that we Americans can be a little loud and a little Frank as compared with some Europeans. And I think in this way, the Cantonese are kind of like Americans if you compare them with the Japanese and the Koreans I've had some experience in those cultures as well. And I think they're a little more reserved on a little quieter. The thing that makes me laugh is that I don't think you will ever have a louder dining experience in your life than being in a tea house where every tables full, we talked before about the Cantonese language being very coarse and guttural, and but the people to are they talk quite. Loudly. I was I was with a friend and Annella Vader, and he didn't speak Cantonese and a couple of women got on. And then got off after a couple of floors. And and he said why were they yelling at each other? And I said, well, they weren't yelling. They were just talking about what they bought during the day when they were out shopping. And so if you're of a kind of a loud American, you probably won't get as many looks in in Guangzhou 'cause 'cause they're pretty loud too. And but I love it. It just makes me laugh and say, hey, I'm back in going gel. And I just love the people in the culture, and and in the food, and and everything about this place. Excellent. Last question, if you had to summarize on Joe in three words, what would you say a have to start with mouth-watering? Well, it's consistent. But I would also say inexpensive, we've talked about that. And also educational excellent will our guest again has been a Bill Abbott Bill has a site where he puts up a ten Aries at black dot we bleed dot com, which I'll linked to Bill.

The amateur traveler talks about the maritime silk road, seventy two hour visas and places like the temple of the six banyan trees and the Muslim the non king as we go to Guangzhou China. Welcome to the mature traveler, I'm your host, Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Gwen Joe. I'd like to welcome this show Bill Abbott from Chicago. And also from Blaby dot we bleed dot com, and I'll put a link to that in the show notes who's come to talk to us about another lesser-known place in China Guan Joe Bill to the show. Thank you very much. Chris good to be with you today. I say lesser known as if it were some little tiny village often the hinterlands, which it is not. Yeah. We I mean, we are talking about one of the largest cities in China and in the world, and I think it's probably number two after Shanghai think that Beijing and Guangzhou or kinda right in that same type area in terms of population. Fourteen point five million is what I'm seeing. And I don't know how old those statistics are why should someone go to go on. Joe Chris you've mentioned in your shows about Hong Kong. How Hong Kong is. Kind of China with English sometimes. I can't agree more. I think if you want to delve into the Chinese culture that Hong Kong as a really good place to start. But when you're ready to go behind the curtain. I think Guangzhao should be one of the places that you consider it really has been the center of Cantonese culture for two thousand years and one thing to remember about Hong Kong as the really wasn't a lot there before the eighteen forties when the British moved in. So, you know, at Hong Kong's, a great fun place. But when you want to go deeper into the the history and culture Guangzhao is the place to go. And and I might add it's it's quite a bit less expensive than Hong Kong which can be very expensive for a tourist. And what is your connection with thing one Joe? And you're saying Joe, so I'm gonna try and switch my brand. Yeah, I'm sorry. You know, I'm probably going to do that. So I lived in Hong Kong for two years when I was young, and then came back to the United States and studied Chinese and college and grad school, so I learned Cantonese I when I was in Hong Kong, and then I studied Mandarin later, and I met my wife when I was in college, and she is from the Joe area so ever since we met and married we've gone back every two or three years to visit her family, and and I've really grown to love this this area of the world will what kind of I do you recommend? So I would start in Guangzhou Guangzhou for the Mandarin-speakers. That's the difference. Okay. Got it. Yeah. So I thought I was just saying it wrong. So I feel better long. Joe's Cantonese, and Joe is the Mandarin. So try and remember to give you both pronunciations and probably try and stick with the Mandarin. Where I can't because that's what people will be more familiar with. And that's what your guide books will use to will. And we should just a quick difference between when we talk about Mandarin versus Cantonese. It is usually said that there are different dialect. Although really if it weren't politically with same country. We would call it a different language. The only reason is called a diff the same languages. They have the same written language. But if I speak to you in Cantonese, and you speak to me Mandarin. We're gonna have a hard time communicating. Yeah. You're absolutely right one. I was living in Hong Kong and didn't understand any Mandarin. Even though I spoke Cantonese coin. Well, I couldn't understand with what other people are saying when they spoke Mandarin. So when I was in college, I remember there. A book on linguistics. We were reading that said that Cantonese and Mandarin or more different than Portuguese and Romanian, which are both romance manslaughter. So if these were different countries would probably call him different language. I'm sure will in Cantonese has stopped me if I'm wrong, I've learned some Andren in no Cantonese Cantonese has six tones in Mandarin has four I think we're pretty settled on Mandarin with the four tones, but I've seen different systems some that say Cantonese has ten tone and others say seven, so it's a fun language. It's a little more guttural, whereas Mandarin. I feel as a little it's pretty its sing song Cantonese is kind of rough. But I kinda like it. And when we say tones, just one last thing languages the visits where you can get yourself into trouble. This is the don't call your mother, a horse as my Chinese teams to say the word Ma for instance, in Mandarin, depending with you say, Ma Ma Ma is what you I did that in hemp to scold, mother or horse. So it's that is dif-. Different than we have in a lot of the western languages. That's the that's the hardest part about the language. Well, except for writing the characters reading those. Easily. I never got past two hundred excellent. So we're going to go on Joe or gone Jiao. And you're gonna give us an itinerary. Exactly. So I would start off with two or three days in Guam coat. And then I would do a day trip to a neighboring city that still part of the same metropolis that's called foot San or four Sean in Mandarin. And then I would take a couple of days and go off to an island, which is called highlighting island along the way. There's another place. That's unesco. World heritage site called Hoi ping or typing that has some interesting structures to look at. So if you have a week that would be a summary of the itinerary that I would do and we talked about Hong Kong. This is something that could easily be added onto a trip to Hong Kong Macau because either one of those is what sixty two hundred miles away. Yeah. Very close very easily to connect. I mean, if you're coming from Hong Kong, you could fly it's a really short flight, you could take a boat up the river. A you could take a bus. You could go on the train. Rain. So there's many different ways to get there. And and it's very quick and convenient make sure that you know, about the visa situation, of course, before you go anywhere in the world. This is one of those places that if you're a US citizen, you're gonna have to get a visa all though things of changed and recently, they've they've started allowing visa-free trips, and and Guangzhou is one of those cities where you can take advantage of this. But there are certain restrictions visa-free. You're talking about the transit visa, right? And that's a seventy two hour visa in Guangzhou. I think but there are restrictions on it. Right. Be your final destination to be going on to somewhere else. We just did that on our way to Japan, we spent a night in Chiang high. So my Chinese daughter and used a transit visa, which had no cost you, just basic. Got into a different line as you came into the country. And I think that yes, it's seventy two hours in Guan. Joe it's even longer now. It's one hundred and forty four hours in Shanghai Gijon and Joensuu interestingly enough for the one if you're flying into the Guangzhou airport, you can go all over the province with that. When you don't have to stay just in the city. So for the itenerary that we're talking about today, you could take advantage of this. If you don't have a Chinese visa, so like, you did I did it in Shanghai awhile ago. But now, I got my brand new ten year multiple entry visa, so I'm not gonna have to worry about it for a while. When I was first in Shanghai would up to the consulate spent all day, I think it took me two trips. But then you still end only end up with a one entry thirty day visa. So this ten year visa, basically means you've got a visa for the length of time. You have your passport. Exactly excellent. What are we doing in the city? I on your first day. I keep a kind of light ending on when you're coming in and your jet lag and everything that you're going through. But a couple of places that I would try and Steve the first one would be Salmeen island or Shamin island. This is an island in the river. And we didn't really talk about the job or fee much. But this is the Pearl River, which is the third major river system in China after the yellow in the Yangtze river, so this place this island is in the river and during that same opium war period. When hong. Kong was taken by the British this island became a foreign concession. There's not a lot of huge sites here. But it's very popular. It's very peaceful part of the city and a place. Many people might consider to be the the prettiest part of the city. It's gotta lot of these old western classical buildings that were used as consulates than one interesting thing about it. You see a lot of people taking pictures there, which isn't strange, but they might be taking pictures of a watch on somebody's arm or that they're wearing if you don't know in advance what is going on? Then it might seem a little strange, but a lot of the advertisements in the area are taken here. So these are professional type for tog refers who are taking pictures, and they liked the backdrop of the classical style buildings. I guess on the island for. Whatever they're taking a picture of to advertise. Nice place to wander around if you get into town where it's too late to everything's closed, and you wanna get out and see something then this is a good place to go and really nice parks and buildings.

They would ask what nationality we were. If it was an African nationality that simply say the Africans are not out to stay here for the time being we asked the question, why are Africans not allowed to stay some said they didn't know others said that there was a. Quest and order from the police and other authorities, demanding the hotels were not take African bookings. So we think it is an official judgment of and it looks like it must be, doesn't it because it's a city wide phenomenon. This applies not just to Uganda, NHS, not just a Nigerian. We think this is all Africans then the seems to be some dispute. Some of the hotel staff that I spoke to, they would say for Nigerians they would say it's Ugandans, but many would also say that anyone from any African nation simply wasn't able to stay one hotel staff at she said to me that even people from Columbia and also not able to stay in hotels in Guangzhou, right people from Columbia, presumably of dark skin. We excuse. The I was given was that this parent policy was really related to crime. No one was speaking semi officially, I'll speak in members of staff and sometimes security guards, they felt the African community perhaps committed more crime than. Other communities in Quanzhou and same that they believe this type of policing efforts..
Mother, son, contract rat lungworm after eating raw centipedes
"I had tickets to go see smashing pumpkins. And, they're playing tonight in New Jersey But we we saw them at MSG and you know why because tonight it might be kind. Of. Cool but they have like. All these special guests joining it because. It's their thirtieth anniversary tonight and didn't have any special guest last night no and we just wanted to we just. Wanted, to see. Smashing pumpkins we. Didn't wanna see Courtney love up there and all these other people who else is going to be the beano oh by name I, don't remember like guys from the killers You know. People, like this, I did a little write up on it If anybody wants to check, that I it was a great. Show, but there was one bad part but I'll let. You read it actually we'll talk about it later are in any way there's that, also there. Is a famous filmmaker who was born this day, in jersey history. Bills got that. And. More on nj one. And one five dot com internet still around okay so it's to ten? What do, you think the. Odds are that anybody's eating lunch right now Oh no For the. Most? Part right although they were too, young ladies we came on. The. Air okay anybody I know there's always the, late launch anybody who was eating and I hate to, say this but I'm trying to. Be kind we don't want people to, not listen but I don't wanna grow sunny. One out I have a story that we wanted to talk about that involves eating. Strange. Food, okay And we're gonna, take your calls later on. The, strangest most daring food that you ever tried, at one eight hundred two eight three one zero one, point five but I have to. Share the story the story might make, people squeamish I just want to warn people. Of course than the worm and the fish story from this week I think way. Worse The kid wait maggots I think worse no when you get into. The nitty gritty yes Okay all right. This is from CNN and I, apologize if I'm mispronouncing this city or town in China but after two people in Guangzhou. China were admitted to, the hospital with headaches and other neurological symptoms, doctors, pinpointed and infection. With. A strange backstory they had eaten raw? Centipedes What. Would he throw centipede, well you got to cook Oh Well who would he'd centipedes? Right but over there apparently people will eat, centipedes but they usually cook, them. Okay but sometimes people will eat them to grab a snack and, go, well which will get. To there's, there's there's a reason they. Do there's a reason they, do but they had eaten raw. Centipedes now the first patient was a seventy eight year old woman shows up in the hospital with a headache sleepiness and congenital or Cognitive impairment targets impairment. Then, a few weeks later her forty six year old son shows up at the hospital with some of the same things right They're like what the heck both. Patients had stiff necks a sign. Of possible meningitis but scans show too suspicious spots in the women's, brain, and one knowledgeable in the man's right lung both patients. Had, something in common they. Had. Eaten, these raw centipedes from vegetable market in glaze them oh. I thought you would just catch him around. The house Nope that's an actual. Food Yep now lab tests, confirmed that they were infected with rat lungworm that's, a whole lot of gross isn't theirs that's where I'm. Going. With this there's something called rat lungworm. And there's a big fancy long name, for it, but rat lungworm and this causes. A type of meningitis okay, so they weren't too far off now the parasite can fully mature in rats not humans and so Somebody who is an assistant professor says when it. Gets. Any human it can get lost and. It will go to the brain and, it will, stay there Ooh When it, gets is it alive in your? Brain. Yes When it gets to the brain, you can have e- Yosano Philip? Meningitis It's. An inflammation of a thin membrane covering the spinal cord and the brain no human, beings have, become, infected, with this parasite by eating contaminated plants and animals including snails, monitor lizards and, slugs who could eat a slow people in different cultures eat different. Things or maybe you're in survival training for the army or something right. But it was never known to be caused, by. Eating centipedes until this now they. Say it's rare to eat them raw this, answers your questions about that they say it's rare, to eat them. Raw but people will are they better when they're crispy probably isn't. Everything centipedes are not a normal, diet says one doctor overseas in China But he says, he explains the male patient in this case believed, eating raw centipedes. And apparently a lot of people believe this will bring good health Because he thought, it would bring good health he gave some. To his mother said awful Yup he said mom YouTube please Ethier's raw centipedes it'll be good for you Now it gets worse to confirm. That it could have been the Senate Pedes the researchers purchase twenty of them from the same market where to patients had gotten there's so. They went to that market this is kind of like remember the old medical show house. When they go in the field and do this. Research kind of like that they found rat. Lungworm. Larva in, seven, of, the twenty specimens and. Average a little bit and An average of fifty six larva per centipede to. Our knowledge this is the first report of this rat worm lung infection through consumption of. Centipedes We do know that people can acquire the parasite by consuming raw. Or undercooked snails and slugs more than, one hundred. And forty species of mollusks. Snails slugs have been found to? Be potential intermediate. Hosts other animals that feast on these snails and slugs including frogs fish. May also become infected where does the rat come in here's it here it is Amazing you, didn't even see the story that you're asking the questions and all the right spots but as the name of the parasite suggests the rat, is the, definitive host the parasitic worm now this work is really gross so again I'm going to warn the parasitic worm after being, ingested by rats makes. Its way from the rats intestine to the rats bloodstream and then into the, rat's brain there they moult and mature in the rat's brain she. And then they migrate back down into the rats lungs arteries the, blood vessels servicing the lung where the, adult worms. Are found an adult female. Mainly fifteen thousand eggs per day? Rats then this. Is fascinating Kinda gross rats them cough up these worms and then subsequently. Scarf them back down Oh this is. How this is then how these parasites tend to end up back in the rats fecal. Matter who's, eating the fecal matter where they are then, eaten by slugs or snails and so and so the cycle continues So many gross components to that store why I wanted to. Share, a new that took that. Was, a long journey of grossness but I wanted to explain this all mess and for the first. Time they're finding centipedes Ross centipedes apparently or feasting the way the snails and slugs rat. Poop apparently, I didn't know anybody poop Why did I mean. I'm, not dead I don't know It's waist Hey man nature is. A body Creatures? Body. Couldn't use I know right yeah why would you think you? Could, get anything out of it hey I can get larva I can. Get a rat worm. Lung infection what a, terrible life if you're a. Snail so you can't move fast, you got the. Stupid, shell, around you need poop Miracle they don't, know kill themselves At least. They go, to WalMart, on weekends I mean you know. It's not that bad alive Uneven, trail of, sludge sledge to slime yeah Yeah they do now we know what a little bit of. His All right so all of this because people over. In China, were eating raw centipedes and these people got horribly ill so again that, was from this little purposes and it didn't turn. Out so well but we want to know whether you were overseas maybe, you were in the service, and, you, wanted to try the cuisine maybe you were a daring Anthony bourdain tight on a, trip overseas somewhere where maybe right here in the good old survey but what is the strangest or most daring food that you?
