Starting in China

So let me start by saying that china really is a completely different world. Upon arrival I was quickly introduced to the unique driving culture. I have never seen anything like it before in my life. To me, a proper German driver; it seems like there is no order whatsoever. Traffic laws are mere suggestions here as one lane can quickly turn into a three lane. During our student orientation we were informed that it is theoretically no problem to rent a car in China. However, it is unadvisable unless a person is truly familiar with the driving habits of the Chinese. It is really survival of the fittest on the road here but somehow everything just flows. I think the Chinese have applied the concept of feng shui to getting through traffic. I think the key is to just keep going and flowing and everything should be fine. Now I bought a bike so I am slowly getting accustomed to it because bike traffic is similar.
