Beijing is just the 1st stop in a 3+ week journey through China along with Ohad Jehassi, a great friend from B-School.

A few short days leaves an unmistakable and unique impression. Some countries leave me saying the people are so nice (New Zealand) or the historical sights are spectacular (Jordan) or the women are gorgeous (Argentina).

China offers none of these - the people aren't particularly friendly nor the ladies particularly attractive, but quite simply this is a nation whose time is now.

Driven, hard working, smart, efficient, ambitious, confident -- wow this country and its people have their shit together. While this is a very hackneyed and over-reported story, witnessing it first-hand drives home the point leaving zero room for doubt.

I don't know if it'll take 10 or 50 years, but these guys are gonna dominate the future!!!
