Merry Christmas...... in a Typospherian way!

See what a picture I have found online! Two People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers in green uniform posed for a picture decades ago with a red Japanese-made Brother typewriter in the background. 

Today, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the controversial Yasukuni Shrine on the 120th Anniversary of a equally controversial Mao Tse-tung/Chairman Mao. What a drama! The shrine worships Japan's war dead, including A-list WWII warlords convicted in Nuremburg . 

Red and Green, colors of Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

From Shanghai, China. 


  1. Great picture Gerard. Let's hope for some more "brotherly" love between China and Japan in 2014 and beyond. :)
