It doesn't bother me personally very much but the lack of decent cheese in China (apparently) does seem to bother other Europeans living in China. A friend who recently moved to Liaoning told me the biggest problem he had was lack of good cheese while another friend in Hong Kong considering moving to the Mainland cited cheese as a major reason he wasn't to keen to make the move. This concern over the provision of cheese seems somewhat odd to me but it does also seem to be an age old problem. This advert appeared prominently on the front cover of the Peking Post on January 10th 1910 informing cheese starved ex-pats that supplies of Gruyere, Roquefort, Savoie, Gervais, Camembert, Brie and other cheese had arrived from Europe and were available at Th. Culty and Co's store at Legation Street, Peking. Hooray!
