    Now over 75 percent of its 1.3 billion-plus people have at least one cell phone. It could be the sheer number of people in China trying to have their say, but shrill voice --- often combined with spittle spray --- come across several decimals higher than is comfortable to Westerners.

    Even after my third trip to China, the country continued to baffle. Its social rules were puzzling. Its business agreements were revocable. Its people were accessible and, at the same time, unreachable.

    How, why, when, and with whom things are done in China depends, on a certain level, upon guanxi. Like most idioms, guanxi is not easily translated into a single word that mirrors its meaning.

    Even in neocapitalist China, dignity is infinitely more important a commodity than money. Keeping face is paramount; losing it, disastrous; taking it away from someone else, unforgivable. Any form of refusal costs face, which is the reason one should not be direct in saying no in China. Conversely, one should never assume that a yes in China is reliable, for the Chinese yes is a transitory, flexible concept.

    No matter the foreign land, acts of kindness rarely require an interpreter. Manners, on the other hand, are the complex representation of human interaction based on the history of a particular culture.

    although China has not embraced the concept of religion in quite the same way as has the West, in bodying forth the spirit of their ancestries, the Chinese have created ceremonies and traditions that serve the same functional purpose as religious belief.
