Cool. I bet you got some stares.

I'm 5,10 / 180 and they tell me "you are so strong!"

Been to all of those cities except Chongqing. I live near Guangzhou, in a city called Shenzhen. Not many have heard of Shenzhen but it's nearly twice the population of Chicago.

Oh yeah...  I'm 6 feet And at the time I was 255 lbs.... some guy kept calling me Mike Tyson!!!! Lol  but I definitely stuck out like a sore thumb there!

You are not missing much in chongqing....its mainly an industrial town, I was there visiting factories.  I've heard of Shenzen, a bunch of the components our company was buying were shipping out of the port in Shenzen.... I always assumed it was a part of Guangzhou.

I'm not the best person to ask about Chinese food. I've actually visited the US with Chinese students for my job, and they tell me the US version usually sucks. I'm very picky about Chinese food, but I can get a good bowl of noodles here for about one US dollar.

Prices are pretty much the same when considering fast food, but a lot of American food is much more expensive either because it's imported or they know that foreigners will pay much more. For instance, a slice of cheese (at the supermarket) is about 80 cents.

The Monolithic Fallacy
In todayís English, stereotype is a dirty word. Its connotation is so closely tied to racism that it is effectively considered a synonym. But it is ironic to see how prevalent many statements are made in the same vein when considering ideology.
The polarized atmosphere of American politics seemingly necessitates that we take a position on an issue before it even becomes prevalent. But thatís not the worst of it.
Since living overseas Iíve noticed that the misconception is self-multiplying. Perhaps you could imagine a liberal, gun-owning friend (yes, they exist) sticking up for the second amendment. But, since living in China, Iíve come to notice that many Americans (donít worry, Iím not going to make the mistake myself of saying all) seem to think that all Chinese people are in love with their government and support it one hundred percent. That is simply not the case.
ĎThe governmentí is a sensitive topic in China, of course. I donít want word to get around that some foreign teacher, especially one from a country on such shaky terms with the CCP, is riling up students in an English class. I donít feel itís my duty to come to foreign countries and do such things, and I realize it would be totally ineffectual, less than a drop in the bucket. Iíve also got a kid on the way and put that way above any politics that isnít life or death.
 But once a week, I teach a current events class, just general news from around the world. So often it happens that we get to talking about laws and Ďgovernment officialsí while broaching different topics. More often than not, I find myself steering the lesson away from controversy.
Of course, these comments are just from structured classes. Too many Americans assume too much about what Chinese people know and what their opinions are on any topic. Just today, someone was telling me, he didnít know if I had heard, but  that there was some trouble in Beijing in 1989. (I got off that topic like it was going out of style. ) Iíve cringed with segued intentions at someone telling me that Ďthe Chinese soccer team was a joke and I love China but I hate the governmentí. ĎOh, sorry to hear that, what are you doing this weekend?í Was my perfect response.
If given a monolithic option, all people will naturally fall into it. When I was an exchange student in 2007 here in China, someone asked me why America invaded Iraq for oil. Without even thinking, I laughed hard. I thought it was so funny that this person didnít realize the debate within the American spectrum, where, at the time, it was such a point of contention. It seemed such a simplified question, ignoring so many millions of different opinions, that it surely must be a joke. Now when I read so many comments from Americans, I donít find it so humorous. I donít mean this to sound that Americans are worse than Chinese people, because, given a free press, thatís probably the opposite. But to see all as one is now firmly a mistake in my mind.
