- Borneo~ that big Island in S.E. ASIA
My point...Can you tell the wealth, the infant mortality, the education or anything from this picture? No...anymore than you can tell anything from a photo of rural or city China.you can"t tell how developed a country is from how old their buildings look.
This is why I objected to tksensei's rural shot of China and the subsequent "Western standards" imposed on Chinese.
This is why I think the UN "benchmark" is deceptive.
But I use to stay here: I know of it's history...very mixed in the past 100 years.
