Ian Clark E-mail
Magazine - City Interview
Written by Ian Clark
Ian Clark also known as "Tao Yiran" is a true insider and not be taken as an usual common expat. He's been in this country for a decade. He has mastered Mandarin so extraordinarily well that he now works as a successful English-Chinese translator. Besides, he is a passionated musician and artist as well. He has published his first book in China "I Ain't No Foreigner" which is an original work written entirely in Chinese.

It was published nationwide in China and officially began distribution in March 2008 [first printing sold out November 23rd 2008] and was introduced on CCTV and in other national media as well. Several appearances in Chinese media such as documentaries about him underline the interest in his views and feature his direct and honest opinions.

Europäische Strasse E-mail
Magazine - Deutsche Kolumne
Written by Noruma Mueller
Dieses Jahr sind wir für die „Golden Week“ in China geblieben. Und wie viele andere sind auch wir verreist. Unser Ziel war Qingdao, die Stadt aus der das beliebte Tsingtao Bier kommt.

Qingdao ist nicht nur für seine Bierbrauerei bekannt, sondern auch für sein europäisches Flair. Vom Fernsehturm hat man eine schöne Aussicht über die Stadt, und es ist erstaunlich! Die eine einsame Pagode am Horizont wirkt etwas deplaziert zwischen den roten Dachziegeln und Bauten deutscher Architektur. Eine der Attraktionen Qingdaos ist natürlich das Meer. Die Küste ist besonders fotogen. Ebenfalls ganz oben auf der Liste der Sehenswürdigkeiten findet man die St. Michaelskirche und die protestantische Kirche. Um zur St. Michaelskirche zu gelangen muss man eine kopfsteingepflasterte Strasse hoch laufen, die mit einem großen Schild wirbt: European Style Street. In der Tat, wenn man am Platz vor der Kirche steht ist man von Gebäuden umgeben, die an eine deutsche Altstadt erinnern. Aber China wäre nicht so interessant, wenn nicht alles irgendwie anders wäre. Selbst die Kirchen sind anders hierzulande. Die Kirche in der „europäischen Straße“ zum Beispiel ist nicht für den Gottesdienst da.

Wo Li y Kaifeng E-mail
Magazine - Columna española
Written by Antonio Broto
Una de las pinturas tradicionales chinas más fascinantes, y quizá la más famosa del arte pictórico chino, es El Festival Qingming junto al Río, una obra con un curioso formato ultraalargado (sólo tiene 24 centímetros de altura pero tiene más de cinco metros de longitud) en la que se muestra una escena festiva en la China tradicional.

El cuadro es una especie de Donde Está Wally pintado en el siglo XII, una escena en la que más de 800 chinos de toda condición juegan, pasean, hacen acrobacias, transportan cosas... Todo el mundo está afanado en celebrar el Qingming (equivalente chino a la fiesta occidental de Todos los Santos). La escena se desarrolla en la ciudad de Kaifeng, que entonces era capital del imperio chino. Por eso cuando se va uno de turismo a Kaifeng, se comprueba que en todas las tiendas de souvenirs venden versiones reducidas del famoso cuadro, enrolladas en cilindros de madera o de plástico para que uno las pueda transportar con mayor comodidad.

Prince Restaurant E-mail
Magazine - Restaurants
Written by Prince Group
Prince Restaurant Xian ChinaXi'an Prince Restaurant is located at the 4-5th Floor of Prince Building, No.5 of Fen Road, South Street of Xi'an City. Its total area is 10,429.12 square meters and its business area is about 8,000 square meters.

The Xi'an Prince Restaurant opened on December 28th, 2002. It has totally 58 differently styled luxurious rooms, and owns about 800 seats. Its design is simple but luxurious, plain but elegant. The sense of space, the sense of art and the sense of beauty, which were grasped properly by the designers during the decoration, constitute the pure-art atmosphere, which builds its own style in Xi'an. Its food, which condenses the art essence of Chinese traditional food and absorbs the creative element of Cantonese food, has tried its best to create the highest food culture with "color, fragrance, flavor, shape and implement". Whenever you are in the restaurant, the extending and complaisant service will make you enjoy the respect and honour like a noble.

John Beddoe E-mail
Magazine - City Interview
Written by ND
John Beddoe is one of those exceptional expats who is absolutely worth to be mentioned.  He is, due to his professional obligations in his home country Australia, an irregular visitor of Xi'an yet.

But even so, he always looks forward to come back to Xi'an and enjoys the teaching classes with his students at the Xi’an Polytechnic University. He is a professional english teacher for university students in Xi'an but beside that he is a professional musician and artist as well. John Beddoe, being a professional musician,  plays not only perfectly guitar but is eager to learn and master traditional chinese instruments like Yangqin  (扬琴) as well.

Oktoberfest in Xi'an E-mail
Magazine - Deutsche Kolumne
Written by Mirko Segelken
Es hat die ganze Nacht geregnet und das Umschalten von einem trockenen, stumpfen Kunstrasenplatz auf einen nassen, zumindest für den Ball rutschigen scheint vielen meiner Mannschaftskameraden nicht wirklich zu gelingen. Und so erlebe ich das wohl schlechteste Fußballspiel hier in China und ich bin mitten drin.

Dass das alles andere als dolle ist, sieht auch unser neuer Trainer ein, der mitten in der zweiten Halbzeit kommentarlos das Weite sucht. Ich bin gespannt, ob er je wieder kommt. Dennoch sind die Oberschenkel anschließend hart wie Stein, nicht zuletzt wegen des harten Trainings am Donnerstag noch. Dennoch gilt es, der Einladung des Paulaner-Vertriebschefs für China zu folgen und am Abend in den Hof des edlen Sofitel-Hotels zu fahren.

Dort wird Oktoberfest gefeiert, vier Tage lang, mit Paulaner-Bier, bayerischem Essen à la carte, stilechten Bierzelt und extra eingeflogener bayerischer Kapelle mit Gaudi-Musik. Mit 188 Yuan Eintritt und 90 Yuan pro Liter Bier sind selbst die Preise deutsch, aber die Rechnung, dass wir ja dieses Jahr sowieso den Cannstatter Wasen, das Münchener Oktoberfest und den Bremer Freimarkt verpassen, ist Grund genug, dennoch hinzugehen. Und das Essen ist wirklich sehr gut. Und natürlich die Musik.
