I went to Carrefour today to buy a turkey for Thanksgiving. Carrefour is a French supermarket that caters to the 25+ million Chinese here in Shanghai. While the expat population in the city is substantial it’s not a drop in the bucket when compared to the locals. Only in China will you experience a scene like what I saw today.
As I was strolling throug the poultry section I was shocked as local Chinese picked at and grabbed chicken to be weighed and packaged from a large refrigerator. No tongs. No gloves. Just their bare hands. Don’t believe me?
