The other day.

There was an item on television about Chinese billionaires buying up wine castles in the Bordeaux region of France, famous of course for its red wine. Initially the French were happy with the Chinese money invested in their crumbling castles, but as more castles and wineyards turn into Chinese ownership they are starting to get a little worried the Chinese will eventually take over their whole region and export their winemaking knowhow to mainland China.

It seems the Chinese are buying up everything these days.
