An American visits the Beijing Wal-Mart

Seth Roberts made a list of 11 observations while shopping at a Wal-Mart in China. Here are the first four.

  1. They sell live turtles.
  2. A whole display case is devoted to sea cucumbers.
  3. Like any upscale American or Beijing supermarket, they have a sushi case. The prices are half what they'd be in America, but the pieces of fish are much thinner.
  4. They cut up meat in front of you. A whole pig was being butchered on a table. A roast duck was being sliced for packaging.
