I moved back to the motherland September 2010 to improve my Mandarin, re-explore Eastern culture and discover new opportunities. After spending the first year in Shenzhen relearning Chinese and reacquainting myself with and acclimating to the culture (it really takes that long), I decided my time with this country was far from over. Having just figured out how to pay the bills and navigate through crazy traffic, I was finally ready to embrace the full China experience. 

So I moved to Shanghai.
