What’s the best way to get to and from the airport? The subway is cheap, but it means hauling your luggage around and sitting there through all the stops that aren’t yours.Cabs and ride services get you straight there, but they’re more expensive and run the risk of getting caught in traffic.What if there was an option that was a little more expensive than the subway, a little cheaper than a cab, but guaranteed to be fast, clean, and easy? At Chicago’s O’Hare airport, it seems that option will soon exist, and it’s being brought to Chicagoans by none other than Elon Musk.After receiving proposals from several organizations, the Chicago Infrastructure Trust chose Musk’s The Boring Company to build and operate a high-speed underground shuttle between the city center and the already-huge, soon-to-be-huger O’Hare.The company states its goal in building environmentally friendly public transit systems like this one is “to alleviate soul-destroying traffic.” According to the Airports Council International 2017 rankings, O’Hare is the world’s second-busiest airport in terms of take-offs and landings (after Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport), and the sixth-busiest in terms of total passenger traffic—over 79.8million people flew through O’Hare in 2017.Not every one of those people needs to get to and from the city center—some are just connecting to other destinations—but of the tens of millions that do, how many would opt to use Musk’s Chicago Express Loop, as the project has been dubbed? More importantly, what is this thing? A Tesla-in-a-tunnel? A mini-hyperloop? It’s sort of a combination of the two.The Express Loop will run in 14-foot-wide tunnels 30-60 feet underground at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour.The Boring Company calls the vehicles themselves “electric skates,” defined as platforms on wheels propelled by multiple electric motors.Besides being built on a modified Tesla X chassis, they’re battery-powered and produce no emissions.They look like futuristic train cars, and each skate will hold up to 16 passengers.Hyperloop pods, if they ever come to be, will travel much faster than Express Loop (600+ miles per hour), and the pods will need to be pressurized, as there will be a partial vacuum inside the tube to significantly reduce air friction.Express Loop won’t need to reduce air friction or have pressurized cars.The trip from downtown Chicago to the airport is projected to take just 12 minutes (for comparison’s sake, the Blue Line subway currently takes about 45 minutes).As the crow flies, it’s 16 miles from downtown to O’Hare.The city departure point will be located in Block 37, an existing mall/subway station that takes up a full square city block, and the O’Hare arrival point will be somewhere in between Terminals 1 and 3.Building two stations, digging 16 miles of big underground tunnels, and putting high-speed electric vehicles in them sounds like an enormous expense—who’s going to foot the bill?

Chinese convenience stores are very different to your own country, come and find out what it's like inside a typical Chinese Convenience store, what weird and wonderful snacks, drinks and doodads can you find in your average Chinese convenience and corner store? China has its own tastes and needs, and this is reflected in what you find in its convenience stores. Even though there are big brand names such as 7-11, the products and services are uniquely Chinese, There is also a huge problem with counterfeiting and copying, so don't be surprised if you come across an 8-12 or something similar. Come with me as I take a close look into some of China's convenience stores!

Traveller beware, China is a wonderful place to visit but you are very likely to get scammed, and not just the occasional traveller, everyone! Knowledge is Power, and even if you live here you have to be on your guard. Scamming is a part of daily life in one way or the other, but armed with this knowledge, you should be able to avoid the worst scams and have an amazing experience travelling throughout China.
