I am an American who came to China for a two month visit. That was over four years ago. I came, and couldn't leave. Of course it helps that I have been studying Chinese history for over 30 years. I have settled in Guilin, where I have a home, a wife, and a beautiful new baby girl. This truly is my home. I have never returned to the States, and I probably never will. I took a tour half a year ago with a company called Access China Travel. I was really impressed with them and so applied for a job. I got it and now work for Access China Travel. I truly love my job, and it gives me lots of chances to travel around this country that I have been in love with for so many years. I wanted to start a blog to share this amazing country with others. It's not an advertisement for my work, but it is my work that gives me the chance to do so much traveling. These are my personal blogs, thoughts and feelings and do not represent Access China Travel.
