…..a man is kneeling & kowtowing in the middle of a bike lane at a busy intersection near the Da Run Fa supermarket. On closer inspection he has an old woman, possibly his mother, wrapped in blankets, not looking particularly well, lying next to him, as the bikes dodge around them. When I ask if she is sick he just nods in affirmation so I give him the benefit of the doubt & put some money in his container. I also wonder, if the current Australian government starts winding back Medicare & people are reduced to similar methods, how long you'd be allowed to do this before being moved on..... …..progress isn't always what it's cracked up to be. As China lurches into the 21st century, sometimes way ahead of supposedly more advanced countries, sometimes hopelessly ... read more

TAIZHOU CITY-SOUTH CHINA The new college I teach at is a smaller university in smallish city near where the old and new Grand Canal met the Yangtze River, north of Shanghai(3 hours away) Called ‘Taizhou’ in Jiangsu province. It is one of the many medium sized cities on the huge Shanghai delta and very flat and not on the tourist track. It does have parks around a ‘square waterway/canal area around the city centre and is OK for walking. Like everywhere else, the old is being pulled down and new high rise apartments replacing them, even in the city centre. Expanding into the countryside, new medical research /university centers are also going up everywhere. Before I left, new supermarkets seemed to be opening every weekend; just in time for Christmas. In spite of all the new ... read more

TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLEGE The college is about 1 or 2 kilometers from centre of city in and OK area with some basic shops out the front with some water gardens and big fir trees inside. The apartment is close to the sports field and concert hall and is comfortable and livable; A bit like a ‘mini’ version of my last ‘mansion’ in Shaoxing. Most utilities work, with a few minor problems as is usual. ‘Not very good views in a quiet location, except for the unexpected fireworks. So altogether there will be 4 English speakers here; all old guys, three from Australia, one from America. I only have to teach about half the classes I was supposed to, so I have plenty of spare time. Our Welcoming Banquet was at the ‘number one’ 5 star hotel ... read more
