CHINESE GRADUATE STUDENT:
Wang Bicycles Through Asia, Europe

By JAN RAHM

During a five month trip William
S. Y. Wang, Grad., used bicycles,
boats, planes, camels, horses, a
houseboat and a motorcycle to visit
11 countries in Asia and Europe.
From September to January
Wang made the tour as leader of
an American Youth Hostel group
composed of two women and two
other men.
A native of Shanghai, Wang
came to the United States in 1949.
He is now a permanent resident,
working on his doctorate in lin-
guistics.
Tour by Bicycle
In September, 1956, the group
left Seattle on a Japanese freigh-
ter and spent a month in Japan,
staying at youth hostels and tour-
ing Honshu and Hokkaido by bi-
cycle.

One evening a special Japanese
dinner was arranged for the group
at which girls in ancient geisha
costumes entertained. Wang and
others wore Japanese kimonos,
squatted on pillows and used chop-
sticks.
From Japan the group flew to
Hongkong, where they spent three
days on a shopping spree, buying
items like quality tailor-made suits
for $30.
Street Fighting
Traveling near Communist China
isn't always too easy, Wang re-
ported. When they were in Hong'
Kong, there was fighting in the
streets between Nationalists and
Communists. Members of the
police force were mobilized
throughout the entire city.
Next stop was Bangkok, often
called Venice-of-the-East because

of its many canals. Wang almost
didn't see this city.
Because he is a citizen of China,
he needed a visa as well as a pass-
port while traveling. His visa ex-
pired while he was in Hong Kong,
and he was not allowed to enter
Bangkok until Thai police gave
him special permission.

Walks Barefoot
Later, in Rangoon, Burma, heI
walked with shoes in hand down
the dark and littered streetsI
around the ShwerDagod pagoda.
India was next on the itinerary.
One of the most impressive sightsI
of the whole trip, Wang said, was
the Taj Mahal in moonlight. I
Wang also told how he had en-
tered a Buddhist temple in Bang-
kok, taking off his shoes and join-
ing the worshippers. In Calcutta,
however, he was not allowed to
enter a Moslem mosque until he
had put a handkerchief on his
head.
Watch Cremations
In Benares the group lived onlyI
a block from the holy Ganges
river, so they were able to watch
the daily cremations and the de-
vout Hindus who washed away
their sins in the muddy water.
Throughout the journey the
group had trouble because of
changes in diet and climate. One
after another, all except Wang
were forced to see a doctor because
of severe dysentery.
Life in India brought another
problem, Wang explained. None
of the group was able to eat the
highly spiced native food, and
American and European restau-
rants were too expensive.
Travel with Pigs
Four days in Kashmir brought
comfort back to their stomachs but
not to their noses and backs. After
spending all morning on a bus that
transported cows, pigs and other
farm animals as well as people,
they rode in the Himalayas the
rest of the day.
A houseboat was home in Shrin-
igar, capital of Kashmir. Since it
was not heated at night, even
sleeping bags, along with heavy

. ,-bicycles through Asia
blankets and red flannels did not
provide enough warmth.
Camels were used in Pakistan
near the capital city of Karachi.
Because Wang and one of the oth-
er men arrived ahead of schedule,
they had no place to stay.
Suez Interferes
A Pakistani professor discovered
their plight and took them into
his home for three days.
They had planned to sail from
Bombay to London by way of the
Suez Canal. However, the Suez
crisis interfered, so they flew to
Rome from Karachi,
In Rome they bought a motor-
cycle and spent the latter part of
November and all December tour-
ing Italy, France, Switzerland,
Monaco and Britain.
Studies French
After five icy weeks on the mo-
torcycle, Wang speht a month in
Paris studying and perfecting his
French.
Here in Ann Arbor Wang
teaches in the Speech Research
Laboratory. His latest project is
working on synthesizing speech
with tape segments.
Commenting on his trip, Wang
said, "I think youth hosteling is
the most ideal way for young
people to travel on a low budget
and see foreign countries in a col-
orful way."
Regrets Shortness
"My only regret," Wang con-
tinued, "is that although this kind
of trip enabled us to see a great
variety of things, it was only a
superficial acquaintance."
When asked which countries he
would like to revisit, Wang re-
plied, "I would like to go back to
Japan and Italy and be able to
live there a while and get to know
the people."
