Sometimes this country just gets too bizarre...

At lunchtime today, the hole-in-the-wall diner where I dropped in for a plate of chao bing was playing an especially, er, eclectic mix of music. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the radio, but who knows if it was some sort of online station or podcast or a self-compiled MP3 playlist or..... In this crazy country, it might even - just conceivably - have been a shop-bought compilation CD.

A Mandopop ballad was followed by..... the Internationale..... followed by Jingle Bells (in English, though I've no idea who the child singer was)..... followed by a rather nice traditional Chinese folk tune whose name escapes me..... followed by the Moonlight Sonata.

Something for everyone.
