Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Monday, March 14, 2005

Ran into Emily the other day at the coffee bar. Emily and Kat had come here from Britain with a non-profit educational exchange organization. They were just here for one semester. They came in August, and left in February, just before Spring Break. That's why I was surprised to see Emily at the coffee bar the other day,
"Emily! What are you doing here?!"

"Oh, I got tired of the rain in London."

These young people aren't really making any money here teaching English, but they do get their lodging paid for, and they are having the time of their lives--lots of free time, and lots of friends--Beijing has a sizeable international youth culture.
