 I'm a 34 year old(for another 6 weeks or so anyway) Canadian..though my nationality has no bearing on my sense of personal identity.

 I came to China when I discovered that my my quaint middle class existence had become a trap..and a very boring one at that.I hade originally planned on staying for a year and moving one to another country(Czech Republic,Vietnam,Japan,Thailand and Chile were all under consideration) but it's been almost two years and I feel no inclination to leave.One of these days...

Oh yeah...I am here with my common law wife and my my 4 month old son...who was born right here in China.AND I just got here so it may be awhile before I get around to editing my profile ect.

Hi, I'm Ruth. Canadian by birth, USAnian by way of moving there and taking out citizenship. George is absolutely right - there are two fun sides to that dreaded 40. Personally, I'm having a blast on this side of it.  Not so many people to be responsible for as when I was a mom of wee-ones.

About 4 years ago my hubby and I became empty nesters, and the dog died, and our jobs were boring.  "What do you think about moving to China?" he says to me.  Long story short (which is really difficult for me) - here we are.  No plans to leave.  We spent three fabulous years teaching at a senior middle school in Liaoning.  When the school could no longer renew our contract, we headed for the deep south (Dongguan) in December.  Now that the weather is warming up, I'm beginning to ask myself why...

It's me, gonzo, one of the originals. I've requested that Raoul not afford me any elevated status, so no need to call me Sir!
I left China mid 04, so probably won't contribute much to your day to day conversations. However, I'm still an ESL teacher with heaps of Chinese students, and can certainly talk about what we have in common there.

Courage is not the absense of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

Oh, the fear...Am I doing this right? New kid on the block in the Saloon, entering my second or third childhood. An expat, who is now an ex-expat, looking to revert to expat soon. Chasing jobs in China

American, female, challenge anyone out there to be older than I am, living in the land of Aloha.

Aloha BK, don't mind the mess, we just moved in.  Once we get the ladies lounge finished you'll be able to see how we really party.  Make yourself at home, we're all one big dysfunctional family and there's always room for one more. agagagagag

Hi BK,

Welcome to our humble little establishment. Don't mind smell (George! Stil! Clean up after youselves... we have a guest! bibibibibi).

Don't mind us, we're all a little insane at times.  aoaoaoaoao
