    Strange request.
    Anyone who is a Chinese speaker can inform my stupid wife believing her friend, who has never been to the Uk, that Newcastle and Co Durham is not like Shim Shui Po. not a dangerous place full of our of work drug crazed robbers.

    PM me and I will explain more.

    Please do not use this thread for comments.

    But, it IS full of drug peddling geordies (and some crackhead scots from across the border) though

    As I understand it, a quarter of the undergrads at Newcastle Uni are now from China, so obviously many Chinese people don't agree with your wife...

    So Sham Shui Po is a dangerous place according to your wife?

    Reminds me of my swedish friends local wife. I took him on a nature trail behind his place, and he told me his wife said he should never go in there because it's a dangerous place. All we found was a few elderly hikers with their bird cages...
