I lived in Huhehaote, Inner Mongolia - "The Blue City" - for 13 months. I now live in my home state in the USA, where I have reconnected with my romantic interest; where I am working to make a little money; and where I am dreaming of travelling again, writing a book, and/or going to graduate school in Chinese Language or Asian Studies.
