China

I have never really been to China yet. I have been in a lot of different parts of East Asia, but never in China proper. That includes Taiwan, Japan, Korea (South of course), Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan. I was scheduled to fly to Shanghai and Shenzhen on July 3–imagine that, the Fourth of July in China, but could not manage to get the visa in the short amount of time available. I currently work on a team with distributed workers–two in China, one in Quebec, the boss in Vancouver, BC, and me. It works amazingly well. I am the only one on the team whose first language is English, but that is what we speak. I love this new job so far. There is lots of pressure, but also lots of interesting work. What more could you ask out of a job at my stage in life–interesting work is worth gold. I will be over there in the next few months, God willing. Looking forward to it.

  1. Hahahaha! Actually, I do pretty good with chopsticks. It is the part at the end where all there is left is a few grains of rice. My big breakthrough came when I found out it is ok to pick up your bowl so it is right in front of you mouth. Much easier that way! 🙂

  2. Make sure to study the eating edicate. It is lot acceptable in all Asian cultures. I know it is okay in Japan, but not sure elsewhere.
