Now I wish I could write you a melody so plain
That could hold you dear lady from going insane
That could ease you and cool you and cease the pain
Of your useless and pointless knowledge....
I am now allowed to blog and "facebook it up" in landlocked Chengdu, China with the use of a VPN. After several weeks and a mixed blur of spicy food, a cacophony of sounds, interactions with a diverse crowd, things are still happening at a fierce velocity. The survival tools of living in China are the following: Open mind, expect the unexpected and a sense of humor. Additional tools my include: tissues on hand for the squattie potties and survival Chinese vocabulary. International teaching is an expereice of world culture and veracity of perspectives.
