If anything comes of the idea, then you are most welcome, Tangying.

I should be leaving Kunming mid-July 2005. Travelling for possibly 5 weeks, Then living in Chengdu, Sichuan Province from late August 2005 for at least one year.

Hi Tangying

Sorry for the delay in writing back to you.

This is my third year in China. I'm not actually at Yunnan University in Kunming, but at Cai Yuan (Yunnan University of Finance & Economics). They are separate institutions.

If you would like to know more, please visit my teaching weblog

I may have time and interest to visit you in Hunan during the summer vacation. I know that Changsha is very famous because of Chairman Mao. What is the name of your hometown?

I plan to first travel to Guilin in neighbouring Guangxi Province. I believe that Yangshuo is a very beautiful place. This is not too far from the southern border of your province.

Good luck to your family

Hey Wocca,You've already stay in China three years?
Perhaps you are well - informed on Chinese affairs. ;)
I used to live in Yongzhou ,a small city on the south side of Hunan Province,it has a very close distance to Guilin.
Do you even heard of Fenghuang(in Hunan Province)?It's a very beautiful town as famoused as Yangshuo.

cheers

Sorry that I was engaged with my work and didn`t read the thread. Count me in! But where is samara right now? When and where shall we meet?

Wocca, how I`m envying you for living such a relaxing and enjoyable life! Chengdu is famous for its easy lifestyle and pretty girls. Will you teach there?

Hi Zhou

Thank you for your kind words.

Many foreigners have also told me that they envy my lifestyle. Some even like to use the word "bohemian". I don't really think that is the most suitable word. I just hope to be able to continue in China for more years to come.

You are right Chengdu is very famous for its delicious food,easy lifestyle and of course the most beautiful girls in China. In fact, there is a Chinese webpage on which I have posted a lot of pictures. They have asked me to take many pictures of Chengdu girls to put on their site. I am sure that the girls I will meet in Chengdu, will be pleased with this. I even have a friend that wants to buy me a better camera.

I have signed a one year contract to teach at the University of Electronic Science & Technology of China (UESTC). It is a "Project 211" university and is very famous. I should arrive in Chengdu late August 2005.

Click these links if you would like to know more about UESTCand / or my teaching

I am in the process of creating other webpages and blogs as well at the moment, and will add appropriate links in future to the first blog mentioned above.

Regards
Wocca

Hi Tangying

I understand Chinese affairs reasonably well. Some of them can be quite complex at times. Nevertheless,I am happy living in China.

I can see on a map that Fenghuang is close to Guizhou Province. Of course, that is much further away from Guilin than Yongzhuo.
