I see almost the same in Vietnam too although the brands aren't as amazing as that. There are tons and tons of Mercedes and BMW over in Vietnam and they're not exactly cheap either.

I definitely want to visit many parts of China some time in the near future. Summer '08 or '09 my dad is planning we do a tour of most of the notable places in Vietnam and then take a short trip to China. Because of time we'll probably only make it to small towns along the Viet/Chinese border.

They may not have machinery for farming. They have cellphones for talking. I went to this little town. In the middle of town of the four corners, China Mobile is on one corner and China Telecom is on the opposite corner.

Talking is 20 cent RMB (3- cent US$) per minute and texting is 10 cent RMB (1+ cent US$) per message. I think as of a year ago China Mobile had 450M subscribers. China Unicom had less but still 100M+. I think we have 250M subscribers in the US.
