The sixth episode of Alchemist's saga is here. A tribute to two classic TV shows of my childhood: The Persuaders and The Professionals, of which I have used the main themes as music background. I used a compound name to name this sixth episode: The Professional Persuader.

This episode starts with the following warning:
Warning! This video contains explicit scenes. Some sequences in this video may not be appropriate for sensitive audiences. The deed$ pre$ented are fictional and do not represent reality.

This is to make clear, that the bribery scenes are only fictional, and that I am not doing this kind of things, when I go to these places to work.

This episode has scenes taken in two different trips: one to Taiwan and the other to China.

After the initial warning, the taxiing of my airplane is shown, and then some scenes of the chaotic city traffic of Tainan and Taipei are shown. Then the preparation of a Chinese-style dinner at the Taipei 101. Afterwards a short sightseeing tour to Keelung, were I have been at a Buddhist temple. Note that the swastika there has not the meaning it has in the west; here is more like the hippie's sign of "love and peace". Then the Chiang Kan Shei (I am not sure I have written it right, I am sorry) memorial with the impressive guard change. The next stop is at a Buddhist temple at night (a different one; this is in Taipei), finishing the Taiwan trip at a street night market, where we can find lots of interesting things, a begging Buddhist monk and restaurants that offer snakes as main dish.

Then the action moves to Shanghai, where we see a skater making figures at a shopping mall. Then it comes the controversial sequence of the bribery, which I want to remark again, that is purely fictional. I have received the box, but full of Chinese tea, which I recommend you to taste. Then we move to Shanghai's old city, which is a nice place to visit, with antique gardens in the old Chinese style, with ponds full of carps and that very typical and attracting Chinese architecture.

Finally, a walk through Kuala Lumpur airport, Malaysia.

I want to make you note, that I am a very odd figure in the east: not only I am a western, or European, but also tall, my head shaved (what only Buddhist monks do), and bearded, while Chinese and Taiwanese men are smooth-cheeked.
