Our move to China all started back in March 2005. I had been asked to go to Shenzhen to do some enginneering-level training. It was an exciting week and I’m sure the staff in the office learned quite a bit about our Clipsal C-Bus system (I had about 15 attendees most days) but I remember thinking at the time if what I was doing was adding any real value to the work they were doing.
In the mean time I had my first exposure to all the crazy things the Chinese do and the environment which they lived in.
After spending the first night in the hotel at Hong Kong airport I was met by Mark and we headed for Shenzhen. Hong Kong is just like any other big western city, except that it’s more densely packed and there was a lot more pollution than I was used to. They have an awesome underground rail system called the MTR (Mass Transit Rail). Trains run every 2 minutes!
