Eastern China

Welcome to China dear ex-patriots or as you will be referred to in most parts of China waigouren (foreigner), laowai (less respectful form of foreigner) and waijiao (foreign teacher). I am Poe Wilson and I will be your guide to life in China. I love this country, but I am also a foreigner and I know that I would rather hear the truth than someone simply saying how wonderful China is. So firstly yes, I am a member of the F.S. Pros team, so take my words as you will. I have lived in China so long that I now get culture shock anytime I visit a western country, but thankfully I am a very frank and direct person. Enough jabber you are here for tips and hard facts so let us begin.

Make your first stop, the right stop.
