... but just couldn't take it anymore.

One highlight has been making a new friend who is also a laowai (foreigner) that can speak confident Chinese. After having dinner together I suddenly feel a lot more empowered about my role, my job and the art of being a laowai in China. Basically it all comes down to confidence. I have to be boss of every situation, and should make demands and expect to get them met just because I am white and ...

I arrived in Hangzhou last night, and it is fair to say it is a bit of an adjustment for me. I owe a debt of gratitude to my friend Will who not only picked me up from the airport but patiently trudged around the city all day with me finding places I need to know how to get to.
