There is nothing but activity around me. Countless buses, battered and shabby, perform a chaotic dance on the streets, crossing each others way.

It’s an area where nobody comes from; everybody comes from somewhere else. It’s an area completely focused on production, where human beings are no more than instruments for a purpose. I’m at the end of a three-month journey through China. On the second floor of my hotel, there’s a discotheque for those who have made it, those who have gained success. They are welcomed at the entrance by the most beautiful girls of the city.
