China’s Ghost Cities? Not so ghost-like.

All that stuff about ‘ghost cities’ in China?

Turns out to be bullshit if you actually show up and look around.

Just like the news articles about no one using the high speed rail out there.

Now you know:

“I’d been chasing reports of deserted cities around China since last December, and I had yet to find one. Over and over again I would read articles in the international media which claim that China is building cities that are never inhabited only to find something very different upon arrival.”

(Via Zhengzhou: China’s Largest Ghost City.)

Not just different, vastly different.

CNN, 60 Minutes and the like are straight up full of shit, or extraordinarily clueless.
