    I'll always take an escalator or stairs over an elevator if given the opportunity.

    they make good products but i think the country is moving into the 21 century too fast and they're cutting corners in many areas.They don't seem to have anything like OSHA yet., and their major cites are ultra modern but with the smog way worse than we had in LA 20 years ago. Once you leave the city you reenter the China following the cultural revolution.
