I'm Nowhere Near China

China is still physically and temporally distant, but I feel like I need to write a first post to christen the new blog. So here's to a year in the Middle Kingdom, seeking my fortune and delaying choices about my future. Cheers.

For those who don't know. I'll be living in Zhuhai for a year, working as an English teaching assistant at a university. I believe the Chinese government has named it the most romantic city in China. Which is neat. If you visit, watch out for the hordes of women who will surely be falling in love with me in this bucolic setting.

  1. 小谷,
    I hope you have a great time in China. If you ever have some free time, be sure to venture north and hang out with me in 北京. Otherwise, we may have to pick a point in the middle kingdom and hang out there. Be safe and have a great journey!

  4. Since I look down on you and don't think you can read let alone believe you have looked at the front page of the NYtimes in the last 2 days, I will link you this article. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/11/business/economy/11expats.html?emc=eta1
    It is about people (infants) like you. The dude in the picture looks exactly what you will look like in a month. Also your blog is really smart and says that the comments above were posted on the 12th, which is tomorrow.

  6. I understand, you're so nervous about writing me a post, that I has to be just perfect. So you had to remove 2 before you were satisfied. The blog is on China time, like I will be.

  10. It's a nickname I've been calling you behind your back since I met you. I didn't capitalize it out of disrespect.
