Chongqing China and Japan

Posted by w_thames_the_d on February 7, 2011


Chongqing China is one of my favorite places here. The people imho are nice and they have the best food on the planet. The Chinese claim it is the place with the hottest women, but you can be the judge of that.
One of the interesting things is that Chongqing people speak Chongqing ese, which is mandarin with an odd accent. They tend to sing or bark when they speak and the sound of it can be uplifting or unsettling, depending on their mood. At present I am watching the Japanese channel and speak not a word of it, but to me the sounds that the Japanese make remind me of the Chongqing accent. I guess its hard to understand unless you have compared them.
