Writer sees another side of China - from his carby Euan Kerr, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — When writer Peter Hessler decided he wanted to see China, he went out and got himself a Chinese drivers license, rented a car, and hit the road.
Hessler served as Beijing Bureau Chief for the New Yorker for a decade, and he writes about his adventures in his book "Country Driving."
Hessler says over those 10 years, almost 100 million Chinese drivers also got their licenses.
He told MPR's Euan Kerr this not only makes driving a little crazy, it also provides a useful metaphor for the way things are changing in China.
